Return once again to Annie Crow Knoll . . . a place to grieve loss, accept change, and rebuild a life worth living.
Breezy and Jemma, are world-class cyclists until violence at a race leaves Breezy with permanent physical disabilities and kills the man she loved. With her Olympic dream shattered, guilt and shame threaten to destroy her future happiness. Her sister Jemma escapes with only minor injuries, but the psychological damage she experiences shakes her self-worth, her Olympic potential, and her capacity to accept love.
The young women return to Annie Crow Knoll, their childhood home on the Chesapeake Bay, to heal and reclaim their lives, and with their parents and grandparents, struggle to make sense of life after this tragic and irrational incident.
Annie Crow Knoll: Moonrise, the third novel in this fiction series by Gail Priest, is a story about the power to reinvent life after surviving loss and trauma. (Can be read as a stand alone.)
50 Over 50 is a superb collection of poetry, essays, and fiction by women over 50. All of the work has something funny, thoughtful, and compelling to say about sex, family, loss, and love. A selection from Annie Crow Knoll: Sunset is included in this beautiful anthology.
“In a society obsessed with the cult of youth, 50 Over 50 is a refreshing, powerful, unapologetic celebration of the feminine voice, seasoned by time and wisdom. At times heartbreaking, at times uplifting, and always profoundly beautiful, it explores existence through the eyes of women who have lived long enough to have intimate acquaintance with birth, death, heartbreak, childhood, parenthood, love, and the fine art of being human.” Tawni Walters, author of Beauty of the Broken, Siren Song, and The Long Ride Home.
