The author, in SPANISH MOSS, takes the reader back to New Orleans; this time to the exclusive Garden District and the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. Megan Marcus, daughter of a well known and respected physician, finds herself sandwiched between two handsome suitors, one who understands and appreciates her creative nature, and the other who wants to add her to his collection of the finer things of life. Her previously safe and unruffled life is threatened when one of her suitors, the smooth-talking, charismatic Justin, morphs into someone Megan no longer understands. She fears he could shatter any chance she has for happiness -- he might even be dangerous. Drifting in the quiet waters of her professional and personal life, it takes a stormy sailboat ride, a sudden illness, and a serendipitous meeting of a man she hadn't believed existed, to cause Megan to rethink her dreams for the future. Will she choose to become a college art professor or opt for a less collegial life of creativity? Will her desire to introduce a bit of the art world to the less fortunate youth of the city be realized? Perhaps even more importantly, which suiter will she take into her heart, and what will happen to the one she leaves behind? SPANISH MOSS offers the reader a journey of lovely descriptive southern prose of the famous city as well as the moss-laden landscape of the Louisiana bayou country. Megan's story snares the reader into a search for the meaning and realization of true love. The novel also offers a glimpse into the professional world of medicine and art, a tempting tour of food, fun, and frolic, in a story filled with intriguing narrative and dialogue.I sometimes miss the pastoral landscapes of Virginia and Maryland, but life in Louisiana is growing more and more interesting. aquot; aquot;Remember, this southerna#39; part of the state is made up of silt washed down the Mississippi over hundreds of yearsanbsp;...
