Women's Fiction

Following in the footsteps of her tiger-taming grandmother, a woman flees her abusive husband to join the circus in this masterful, heartfelt work of women’s fiction.

Peggy Webb won raves for her debut novel, The Tender Mercy of Roses*, with novelist Pat Conroy calling her “a truly gifted writer.” Now Webb has crafted a poignant portrayal of a woman on the edge seeking solace in the past.

Nobody in the family talks about Ellen’s grandmother Lola, who was swallowed up by the circus and emerged as a woman who tamed tigers and got away scot-free for killing her husband. When Ellen’s husband, Wayne, beats her nearly to death, she runs to the only place she knows where a woman can completely disappear—the same Big Top that once sheltered her grandmother. Though the circus moves from one town to the next, Wayne tracks it, and Ellen, relentlessly. At the same time, Ellen learns more about her feisty, fiery relative, and the heritage that is hers for the taking—if she dares. With her violent husband hot on her trail, Ellen must learn to stand up and fight for herself, to break the cycle of abuse, and pass down a story of love and redemption to her children.

I love Southern Fiction!

Your books all sound like amazing reads. I love covers. They're very unique and beautiful. I can't wait to read these.

Thanks, Lisa and Linda. I look forward to meeting many of my wonderful readers as I tour bookstores this summer with these two novels!

this!

My Mother always loved Strawberry ice cream, and since she's
no longer with me, I would love to have a bowl!! These
books sound wonderful, and I have them on my TBR list!! I
am so glad that you decided to go under both pen names and
write under both genres, so that we get a taste of your
writing skills. These books should be a real treat to usher
in the Spring!! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us
today, and have a very Happy Mother's Day!!
(
Peggy Roberson 9:46am May 8, 2014)

Love the cover and the title!
(
Denise Austin 3:26pm May 8, 2014)

Would love to read any of your books under either name
(

Loved The Sweetest Hallelujah....can't wait to read your new release. P.S. I review on Goodreads.
(
Susan Coster 5:54pm May 8, 2014)

The books sound great, especially the Southern Cousins series.
(
Pam Howell 10:42am May 9, 2014)

Although I am from the north Eastern part of the country, I too, enjoy Southern fiction. These books both sound very entertaining,
(
Ann Martinisi 12:26pm May 9, 2014)

I remember being attracted by the "Language of silence", so I think that a
book from the same author could actually be interesting~
