Inhaltsangabe: Molly Harper. Anne Sullivan. Norma Wintz. These three strong, flawed, passionate women will be forced to confront and reveal a secret that will rock each of their lives in the most intimate way. In Molly Harper, each must come to terms with the errors they?ve made in hiding behind lies when it came to their family and their loved ones. And they will each be freed from the tyranny of fear they all lived with that their secrets would be discovered. Neither Anne, Norma or Molly emerge unscathed from these revelations. But each will learn that they can make peace with the past if they acknowledge and embrace the authentic facts of their lives. Particularly Molly, whose love for Cruz Morales has been won and lost, and once again hangs in the balance as she chooses what she wants most from her life.

Vom Autor: My Most Memorable Day....August 14, 1982
 
This is the day I became a mother for the first time. My beautiful girl was born in a hospital in Southern California. The sun was shining, the hills were glorious, my husband was smiling like he was about to collect his winnings from the Lotto.
 
After a ten hour induced labor (that's it for the gory details, except let me say this to all the Lamaze teachers in the world who say, "It's not pain, it's discomfort"... "You Lie" - HA!) Olivia Rose was laid on my stomach. She was perfect and pink and wrinkly, shiny and thoughtful from her first breath. Her eyes met mine and I fell completely in love. Forever. And my very first coherent thought was, "It wouldn't matter at all if she was adopted..."
 
Now I am sure you are thinking, wait, what? A woman goes through nine months of pregnancy, complete with swollen ankles, nausea and an inability to wait more than one hour to visit the lady's loo...and then spends ten hours in labor while her husband holds her hand and eats the lunch the nice hospital lady delivered (not bitter much, am I?)...and her first thought was that if that sweet little bundle was adopted, she wouldn't feel any less love?
 
Yes, that's what I'm saying.
 
My mom, Lorraine, married a wonderful man, Richard, when I was six. He legally adopted me and they went on to have two children together. We were a solid, happy family, complete with summer trips and giggly Christmas eves and support every day of our lives from two parents who brought us up with optimism and love. We weren't perfect, in fact, we had some very dysfunctional attributes related to my adoption, but we were good with a capital G.
 
However, despite this Leave It To Beaver kind of family life, I felt (for the most part subconsciously), that because I was not my Dad's 'natural' child, that I might be loved in a different or lesser way than he loved his other two children. I thought that for a long, long time. Until August 14, 1982.
 
But in that second that I reached out and  touched my daughter, and the doctor said, "it's a healthy baby girl" and Phil-the-fist and I were given this child to cherish for the rest of our lives, I understood parenthood, and family, and love like I never had before. And I knew my Dad had never loved me less, and that the children one adopts grow in your heart the same way the ones you birth do, because they are yours from that first moment.
 
That day was the beginning of the novel MOLLY HARPER. I didn't conceive of or plan on writing that book until about twenty-five years after that day my daughter was born.  But that's writers for you. One day something happens, a seed is planted in our minds and then a story begins to grow.  We weave real life, personal issues, 'what if' and our view of the world into a story that is uniquely ours, but one we hope will touch readers who feel the truth in it.
 
I hope you get a chance to meet the mothers and daughter and sons and lovers in MOLLY HARPER, and that your life is enriched a little by my most memorable day. While adoption is not the biggest theme in this book, it is an important one underlying many of the character's lives, and I'd love to hear from any reader what they thoughts are on how I handled it.
