I wanted to write about how our loved ones live on in spirit and help guide us as well as to empower women to pursue their personal and professional passions.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 09, 2017
SelectBooks, Inc. announces the hardcover release of "Lady in the Window" by Maryann Ridini Spencer, May 9, 2017, ($24.95; ISBN: 978-1-59079-407-4), a new novel that offers inspiration, hope, healing, karmic romance, and the infinite mother-daughter bond.
“I knew that I wanted to write about family and healing,” said Spencer. “It was during a visit to Kauai in 2014 that I decided to place my novel in Kauai because of the affinity I had for Hawaii, its people, and their spiritual connection to their ohana (family) and the environment. Then after my dear mother passed, the story of 'Lady in the Window' just unfolded for me.”
Spencer is an award-winning screenwriter and producer, noted for writing the teleplay for the Hallmark film The Lost Valentine starring Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Drawing from her personal experiences and her home in Hawaii, Spencer weaves a universal work for women who have undergone similar events in their lives.
In “Lady in the Window,” Kate Grace, who seemingly has it all, faces the trials and tribulations we all face at one time or another in our lives — the death of a loved one, the breakup of a romantic relationship, and the desire to find one’s authentic place in the world.
After a series of concurrent events that turn her life upside down, Kate retreats to Hawaii, welcoming the land and its beauty into her healing process. But, the angelic and otherworldly occurrences that begin to transpire during her respite are too poignant for Kate to ignore. Lady in the Window leads Kate towards her path of destiny: discovering true love, purpose, and the infinite bond between mother and daughter. Kate’s path experiencing loss, heartbreak, and betrayal, to the enchantment of self-discovery and the fulfillment of a loving relationship, offers inspiration, hope, and healing.
“In addition to incorporating the idea that our soul never dies and that our deceased loved ones surround and guide us,” continued Spencer, “I wanted to write about the infinite mother-daughter bond, and provide almost a blueprint if you will, to young women who desire to be married and have a family as well as pursue their professional passion.”
