In THE PICKLE BOAT HOUSE a grieving mother struggles to maintain priceless bonds in a world where everything is a commodity. Death has quietly stalked and recruited Vanessa Hardy into the club no woman wants to join, mothers who have lost a child. Her life spins down into a vortex as maternal grief and corporate greed collide in a twisting tale about the human soul and what it means to love eternally. For over eighty years, the Chesapeake Bay community of Nevis has sat in obscurity after its heyday as a resort at the end of the rail line. Although the carousel is long gone, and the train depot boarded and peeling, Nevis silently screams location. When corporate forces recognize the town's value, Vanessa risks losing everything that she holds dear. As dreams and schemes unfold, the main characters begin a slow dance with all of their human frailties. Allegiances are tested, betrayal inevitable as womanizing Ryan Thomas fends off Hector Young, Jr., a jealous, sabotaging co-worker with daddy issues, and falls in love with a grieving Vanessa. Ryan and Vanessa's potentially redeeming love becomes complicated when they come to a shocking revelation. e-Book Cover Design Awards March 2013--Gold star recipient http://www.thebookdesigner.com/2013/04/e-book-cover-design-awards-march-2013/
