“Unfinished Conversations” follows Emily across the country in her quest for substance and love in late twentieth century America. Her destiny sets its own rhythm, plays its own melody, and writes unexpected lyrics.
As a child of a toxic family deep in the Appalachians, Emily dreams of exploring the other side of the mountain, of being a neurologist, of having a normal marriage with children. She thinks Brad is the perfect man to share that life until his unexpected egocentric career goals create a climate of indifference for her and their young son, Kevin. Brad professes his love for Emily, but his behavior never quite matches his words and their marriage rides on rocky shoals.
When Wyatt, a young physician with an equally dysfunctional marriage, and Emily visit a park with their children, providence crisscrosses their lives and weaves immutable patterns only fate’s timing could fashion. Emily learns the cost of loving two men and finds ways to re-invent her dreams in surprising twists and turns.

Read an excerpt:

“The other side of the mountains, twenty-five-thousand feet below, held more of everything than she imagined but the best result of that exploration filled the seat beside her. Where would her journey have led if she had ended her marriage to Brad and what would Kevin’s life and future have been? Emily had avoided familiar deep water but steered her personal voyage into unknown seas. Would stars be enough to guide her way? That night in the darkened cabin of the plane, Emily watched Kevin sleeping and thought of his long recovery. She thought of her promise to Wyatt so long ago. Did her strength come from loving him? Did it grow from a rediscovered place deep inside her?”
