Just when 25-year-old Maria Beaumont thinks her social life and career are cool, her boyfriend dumps her and her museum boss hands her "mission impossible." Recover? Succeed? Date again? Echoes of a critical mom, cantankerous coworker, and opinionated friend dog her as she heads in the direction of new, unexpected voices. As Maria balances today's workplace challenges, fuzzy dating rules, and her own dreams, she proves savvier than anyone expects, surprising even herself. Will she choose the dashing Italian artist, Leo, the genial high school teacher, Bill, or her dream of studying art in Europe? Jane Hoppe's recently released debut novel, "Beyond Betrayal" (paperback, 978-1-60477-559-4), is a thoughtful, lighthearted story of today's fast-paced, plugged-in twenty-somethings chasing their dreams, learning life lessons, and being there for each other.
A freelance writer and editor who creatively shares what she's learned about work, emotional healing, relationships, and life dreams, Hoppe is an author whose stories engage readers in the everyday relational decisions that shape our lives. Says Hoppe, "Readers will enjoy seeing themselves, their friends, family, and coworkers in this story. "Beyond Betrayal" is a fresh, fun look at the everyday relational choices that shape--and reshape--our lives."
The author has drawn heavily from her life experiences in crafting this book. Living in the Midwest, Hoppe knows and loves the areas of Michigan and Illinois, where this story is set. She hopes her book will "ask good questions--create stories that challenge assumptions, stories in which readers see the old in new light and the modern in light of the wisdom of the ages," she says.
