Book Blurb Friday #3


I had a terrible time getting inspiration for this photo prompt. Finally, I got some wee and weak details for the book blurb this week. Now if I can get Linky to work!





                                                                Daily Passages
Celia brought her to New Mexico for some badly needed mother/daughter time. After being so close, they had gradually grown apart. The nose ring, the flamboyant tattoos on Roseanna’s body gagged her. Celia was old school; thought tattoos were defaming the body or belonged on a sailor.

As for Roseanna, she thought her mother was getting old, her ideas no longer insightful. She seemed stuck in a generation ago. She had been talking too much of the old days, of people Roseanna didn’t even know.


On walks and picnics in the moutain air, both bartered with time. Would they repair the relationship? Would they realize that time was escaping them faster than they knew? A biopsy, a baby, would they share it all?

Hi Claudia,
Your interpretation of the photo touched my heart. I especially love the line "both bartered with time." The twist at the end, "a biopsy, a baby . . ." was moving and thought provoking.

Hope you are in good health. Sending warm thoughts and prayers your way.

I have been loving your book blurbs.
That couple... walking together, walking apart...

I loved the "bartered with time" as well. So, you saw the inked leg? Claudia, you're not only a gifted writer, you're also a keen observer. Thanks for playing along.

I'd buy this one, Claudia. The "bartered with time" touched me as well, and the hint of troubles each woman carries gives just enough "oomph" to intrigue for a read. Great job with this!

You certainly enticed me with a real life scenario and that phrase "bartered with time."

Loved it, Claudia. I'll bank that the mom/daughter's relationship began to heal among the beautiful vistas of New Mexico. Susan

Here it is Friday and I'm just now getting around to reading LAST Friday's, so I thought I'd do that first. I love this and would certainly buy the book! Keep writing on this.
