I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar by Elaine Hussey



The theme of courageous women who come together to take care of whatever problem life throws at them threads throughout the novels of Elaine Hussey and the literary novels of her alter ego, Peggy Webb. THE LANGUAGE OF SILENCE garnered Peggy a review from Publisher’s Weekly that calls the novel, “…magical…a page turner.” When the author talked to Fresh Fiction about this book, she said, “Fall in love with the staunch, mystic mountain woman, Ruth, who roars through The Language of Silence. And then, mighty warrior woman, go forth and roar!” The winner of this contest will receive a digital copy of THE LANGUAGE OF SILENCE.

About THE LANGUAGE OF SILENCE

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.
