Scarlett and her friends were caring women, who enjoyed each other’s company. Their regular visits to the tavern were innocent and good for the soul. She would go again, and she would wear the burgundy dress she had bought at work. She’d also get her hair cut. The other women used getting out together as an excuse to dress up, and she would, too. As Sonya said, Nowadays, the only time we dress up is to attend a wedding or a funeral. We deserve more than that. Mary agreed.
Nodding off to sleep, she thought about the women around the table. Combined, they’d lived more than four hundred years. That was a lot living, loving and laughing. She smiled and allowed sleep to take her away.

The eBook for the Salvation of Mary Lola Barnes by Diane McGyver is now available for pre-order at Amazon. It’s listed under the Romance Collection for Quarter Castle Publishing because a budding romance takes place, but the story is about much more than that.
It’s about a woman who has dedicated 25 years to her family and has somehow lost herself in the changing of diapers, laundry, making school lunches and cooking suppers. Her children are now grown and spreading their own wings.
This leaves Mary Lola Barnes wondering what the next phase in life will hold. She believes it involves reconnecting with her husband and rekindling the love they once knew before children.
At the essence of this story is a woman who doesn’t want the world at her feet, only a little attention and someone to experience the wonders of life with.
