Jocelyn Meyers met Mark Denton, a gentleman navy officer from New Mexico while she’s at a high school graduation party at Penny’s Club with her close friend Marcie Rogers. Little did she know, her acquaintance with him will not only spark the beginning of a beautiful friendship but will also change both of their lives forever.

Jocelyn: Self into Silver written by Wanda Palmer is a fictional romantic novel about two people with different cultural and family backgrounds who were both able to learn a lot of things from each other and their respective families. Jocelyn enjoyed spending time with Mark. They always had fun together even though she treated him like another brother.

In so many ways, Jocelyn and Mark were opposites. He was shy. She was gregarious. He needed time to himself. She found people interesting and exhilarating but did not mind being alone with her own thoughts. He liked to grow things and usually had a plant in his quarters. But she had a brown thumb and felt that she could kill a cactus. His taste in music was limited to his tribal music. She liked classical music and always had season tickets to the symphony, the ballet, and the opera. He preferred the outdoors while she was content to stay inside. He was half Navajo. She was from an old New England family. Despite all of their differences, they still could discuss anything.

Mark took Jocelyn and her three brothers (Matthew, James, and Robert) to New Mexico to show them his world as a Navajo, with the proviso that they could return to her home in Groton, Connecticut early, if it does not work out for them to stay the whole month as planned. While in New Mexico, Jocelyn and her brothers learn more about Mark’s people, his family, their relationship rituals, and even their complicated language. On the other hand, Mark wanted to find out if Jocelyn could accept his family the same way he accepted hers. He had fallen in love with Jocelyn and wanted her to be his wife. But she never thought of their relationship as more than friendship. Did she really want to spend the rest of her life with Mark? What was it like to be in love with a Navajo man? Was she ready to commit to him?

Jocelyn: Self into Silver is more than an average love story in itself. Palmer has written an extraordinary love affair between two people from two different worlds who wholeheartedly accept, respect and learn from each other’s differences. Indeed, this book will show to readers that love knows no boundaries and it does conquer all.
