Linda Rosenbery, a prolific writer with a master’s degree in mental health counseling, has completed her new book “After the Flash”: an emotionally driven story about a daughter and her mother’s pain that shapes their lives and leads them to an epiphany that meds their hearts.

Author Rosenbery shares the reality of distance between a parent and her child due to past hurt and unforgivingness: “One spring day in the fourth year of their kitchen table talks, Chieko says to Linda as they sip scotch, ‘If you really must tell my story, tell it like the playwright, Eugene O’Neill, because he knew sadness.’ Even though Linda hears it in her mother voice each time she speaks about her life, the sorrow in her tone routinely breaks Linda down. But Chieko is funny, too, with stories of coming of age at a time in Japan when most believed romance and life in paradise was a promise made in American films brought in by the occupation. Chieko’s hopes and dreams of life in the States with a handsome hero are penned on a photograph of herself that she gives to her American lover as he heads back to the States. It is a simple note that reads, ‘I promise my eternal love.’ Of all the lovely traits mothers and daughters can have in common, one of theirs isn’t so lovely: They both don’t keep promises.”

Published by Page Publishing, Linda Rosenbery’s tale captures the overwhelming pressures of time, culture, and expectations that either mar or strengthen relationships with time.

Readers who wish to experience this work can purchase “After the Flash” at bookstores everywhere or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
