Speaking to the Lawrenceville Women’s Club about Starboard at Midnight at The Tattersall’s wonderful house where almost 30 were gathered was a huge honor and pleasure. Thank you Marty Akers for recommending me again! And thank you to Ed Breisacher for handing me a whole box of early print books to give away. It is hard to describe how this story about my grandparents takes hold and then starts to run as though it was pent up for years and needed to enjoy light again. I guess if I had to put it in some kind of nutshell, I would say that the book is a montage of how devotion is formed and never stops. How we come to heal ourselves and to let go of guilt we carry forward by understanding others, especially those who came before us.
