Check out Anna Wess. She’s a kindred spirit if ever there was one, and speaks with a soul protected by the granny-folk. That makes her safe from evil stares and roaming bears. 😉

Munich Girl

Phyllis Edgerly Ring

“The Munich Girl”
The author asks in the book, “How do you build a life based on a feeling of debt?” That one question perfectly defines what this book is about, and resonates so easily with every reader because it is a simple truth.
Phyllis Edgerly Ring reveals both rare gems and unique horrors to keep the reader hooked. The ending is an absolute payoff not to be missed.
This story, artfully crafted, is for all the flowers out there- those with thorns and those without – who’ve been trampled on, but live to bloom another day.
Intricately woven, the narrator draws the reader in with a touch of supernatural, a slice of history, and a savory reminder that while the past is the past – it rarely stays buried and has an eerie way of repeating itself.
Bloodlines are drawn and the reader is reminded that there is much more passed down to us than mere genetics – if only we have the courage to listen for clues and the fortitude to follow the trail of echoes.
This wonderful take on a historical figure makes no judgements and draws no battle lines. Enough time has passed that we can look at this elusive figure with a bit more perspective given the information and voice that the author provides. The mystery moves at just the right pace. It keeps us turning the pages, and while never preachy, also never lets us forget that all monsters are manufactured by men.This mystery-romance isn’t your typical romance novel. It’s full of intimacy, but devoid of bodice ripping. Thankfully, that’s what I love and have come to count on from this author.

Will the truth be revealed? Will the character wish the truth had stayed hidden? Like a flower reaching for the sun, you won’t be able to stop yourself from finding out.

My grandfather didn’t talk about the depression much except to say, “I was hungry alot.”

The only thing I knew of him was that he was a boxer before the war. He had pictures of himself in the gym holding his entire body perpendicular to a post with just his upper body strength. He liked to talk about boxing and even taught me some moves. He used boxing metaphors to describe and teach me about life.

“Sometimes you have to move backwards to move forward.”

“Keep your chin up – unless you’re boxing, then keep your chin down and let ‘em have it.”

“Lean into the punch and put your weight behind it. If you don’t put your weight behind it, why bother?”

“You know why I…
