About the Author

Jaime Maddox grew up on the banks of the Susquehanna River in Northeastern Pennsylvania. As the baby in a family of many children, she was part adored and part ignored, forcing her to find creative ways to fill her time. Her childhood was idyllic, spent hiking, rafting, biking, climbing, and otherwise skinning knees and knuckles. Reading and writing became passions. Although she left home for a brief stint in the big cities of Philadelphia, PA, and Newark, NJ, as soon as she acquired the required paperwork—a medical degree and residency certificate—she came running back.

She fills her hours with a bustling medical practice, two precocious sons, a disobedient dog, and an extraordinary woman who helps her to keep it all together. In her abundant spare time, she reads, writes, twists her body into punishing yoga poses, and whacks golf balls deep into forests. She detests airplanes, snakes, and people who aren’t nice. Her loves are the foods of the world, Broadway musicals, traveling, sandy beaches, massages and pedicures, and the Philadelphia Phillies.

More About the Author

Jaime Maddox spends her mornings practicing medicine, her afternoons playing mom, and nights writing fiction for Bold Strokes Books. Her books Agnes and The Common Thread were released in 2014, and Bouncing is scheduled for release in May, 2015. She loves her native Pocono Mountains, and all three books are set, at least partially, in Northeastern Pennsylvania. She still lives there, with her partner Carolyn, and their ten year old twins, Jamison and Max, but escapes on occasion for a little diversion. In an effort to keep her blood pressure high, she plays golf. She lowers it again by hanging out with her family, yoga, reading and baking.

This book is set before and after the historically real hurricane called Agnes. Just for my curiosity, I did a little research on this hurricane and the representation of it in the book appears quite accurate. This memorable and disastrous weather event provides an extraordinary pivotal point that haunts the primary character as she basically moved completely away from her geographical childhood neighborhood following the storm. She doesn't return until the death of her grandmother who raised her. Oh how the machinations that occurred before, during, and following that horrific hurricane come to light. This is a magnificent first book and as such another kudo for Bold Strokes Books. This fabulous love story with extra plusses for the historical presentation make it very special. I definitely recommend it.

Sandy Parker was born into wealth yet isn't a bratty rich girl, but a hardworking student and member of her somewhat detached branch of the Parkers. Her parents died young and she became very attached and protective of her grandparents who were smart folks in their own way. Sandy prospers by the sweat of her brow but an overwhelming tragedy that occurred to her during the height of the hurricane Agnes devastation never really leaves her heart. She didn't collapse after this tragedy, but she never felt complete. I so admired, adored, and felt incredibly close to Sandy. This book is her story on many interesting levels.

Several people were close and important to Sandy, but her first and searingly passionate love, Jeannie, is her primary and foremost sexual partner and for forty years that flame always stayed lit within her bosom.

This is a great story told with a lot of details, rich history and great secondary characters. It has nearly a goth feel about it, but radiant moments. Esp. the historical angle (early mining in Pennsylvania, the hurricane Agnes, the development of lesbian lives from the 1970s until now) as well as the machinations of family and their secrets make a dense, rich read which needs to be savored.

This is an amazing book. I loved the story, the main characters and the emotional ride it takes the reader. I loved the way the author told the story and how bit by bit it all came together. The only part I didn't like was that it ended. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I loved the storyline and re-creating the time of the Agnes flood brought back many memories as I was a young teen in the Wyoming Valley at the time of this flood. All the sites & towns were right-on. Seemed strange to be reading about where I grew up. This is the first book for this author and hope she writes many more. Good job Jaime!

The story itself was quite good. My compliments to the first-time-published author. But the one thing that bothered me was the long, long sentences. It reminded me of a friend of mine who rambles on to say something in a bazillion words what she could have said in maybe twenty. If this kind of thing doesn't bother you, I do believe you will like the book very much. After all this, I still recommend it.
