Embrace The Whirlwind, By Laurel-Rain Snow

Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Women of all ages; helping professionals; and anyone interested in stories about relationships, dysfunctional families, and how an individual’s upbringing can inform who they become.

Q: What is the book about?
A: A story about how a person can connect to others in a meaningful and satisfying way, despite a tortured past and a tangled family history. In this tale, Amber Cushing, abused by her mother’s boyfriend, strives to overcome this history; propelled along on a path characterized by a whirlwind of wrong choices, she continues seeking answers and solutions, struggling to find love and acceptance.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: Some of the issues presented in this book came about because of my career as a social worker, helping abused children and young people overcome their tragic histories.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: I injected my own personal experiences into the story, transforming what might ordinarily be a simple chronicle of abuse into a tale of hope and redemption.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: Some of the peripheral characters in this tale are repeated in some of my other books, such as Miles to Go. My first published novel, An Accidental Life, introduces the character of Savannah Chacon, a former teen parent, who has transcended that history to become a promising college student; incidentally, she shares the boarding house where Amber Cushing lands, like a wounded bird.

    I look forward to reading this book. I read “Miles to Go” by Laurel-Rain Snow and it’s excellent. She certainly knows relationships.

    I notice that Laurel left a comment on my “The Toonies Invade Silicon Valley” a few weeks ago … and it disappeared twice. I’d appreciate it if you could go re-post … for the third time? Also my “1106 Grand Boulevard” was just named Cool Book of the Day. I hope you have time to comment there too???

    Thanks, and best of luck will all your novels.

    Betty…Thanks for commenting. I’m hoping that you will read this book soon! Would love to read your impressions.

    Isn’t this “Cool Book” idea the greatest?
