Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hello, friends--

Amazon has invited me to share a little bit with you about my novel, UNA. UNA is a book with themes of personal power and transformation. It is charged with raw emotion, harrowing events and ultimate triumph. It is also one of those very rare books that features an older woman as the central character. 

The idea for the story began years ago. I have long been fascinated by the Holocaust. What, I wondered, did those people in WWII Germany do who were forced to flee to the woods? How did they survive? What would an older woman--a woman my age--do in such circumstances? How would her fundamental values change, if at all?

The result was UNA. While it is not a holocaust story per se, the novel is set on the edges of that troubling time in history.

Since I have written plays, been involved with theater, and won awards for writing and directing a short film, it was natural that UNA should start out as a screenplay. It won an award. Then, like many wonderful screenplays, it sat on my shelf for years. One morning I awoke with the realization that UNA needed to be written as a novel.

Most fiction features a man or a young woman as the central character. Older women are usually seen as buffoons, eccentric beings or stodgy grandmothers. UNA changes that stereotype, and shows an aging woman who is a person with the capacity for powerful emotion, resourcefulness and ultimate transformation.
Most of the people I know who have read UNA have told me that they can't put it down. An author loves hearing that! My hope is that you will find UNA to be, at the least, entertaining, and at the best, inspiring and empowering.

With appreciation,
Mary Elizabeth Raines
