The Ballad of Hattie Taylor

release date: Jan 05, 2021
The Ballad of Hattie Taylor
A daring young woman pushes back against societal constraints in a feminist, coming-of-age Western romance from New York Times bestselling author Susan Andersen. In the small, bustling town of Mattawa, Oregon, the turn of the century offers a new kind of frontier for women: a vast and exciting range of possibilities--to a point. It's a time for change, and no one is more eager to embrace new paths than free-spirited outsider Hattie Taylor. If only she could embrace Jake Murdock too. Jake can't remember a time he was so confused. Hattie is off-limits. The provoking spitfire is under his mother's protection--his protection--and he has always belonged to another. But now, with the passing of his wife, Jake feels something shift between them. Frustratingly aware of Hattie as a woman, he struggles with new feelings, new questions, new desires. But when a desperate decision born of good intentions turns out to have ugly repercussions, Hattie confronts a cruel reality she can no longer ignore: the truth of where women really stand and the actions men take to keep them there. To navigate her new world of tainted justice and privileged order Hattie will draw on the strength of the women around her--and Jake will learn what it truly means to support the woman he loves.

Poems

Poems
Though I ecstatically read poems my whole life, I never tried to write any until I began meditating. Then it seemed my soul emptied its impressions of beauty on paper. I began to see who I was: not the small woman in a social role, but a giant in a larger invisible body. This larger invisible self was writing love letters to me. The poems were a mirror in which I could see many things. Life became a meaningful journey to divine life. Poems can also function as prayers. They were a gift to me, and I offer them back to the source.
