Sarah's Sin by Teresa Slack: Promotion!

I've read some of Teresa's books, and she's a great writer. Be sure to note the contest details

below! Now about Teresa and her book:

Teresa Slack spent most of her writing career focused on novels. Her first, Streams of Mercy, won the 2005 Bay Area Independent Publishers Award for Best First Fiction. Her latest novel, Runaway Heart, was published in February and is available for purchase as an e-book by Helping Hands Press.

(book link: But she’s recently discovered writing short stories is a whole lot of fun.
Just in time for Mother’s Day—a very unconventional Mother’s Day story
M is for the many things she gave me.
O means only that she’s growing old
T is for the tears she shed...
Okay, so not every mother inspires songs, poems, or roses named after her. Some mothers are hard to honor, and even harder to love.
All Sarah McWhorter ever wanted was her mother’s love and respect. She learned early in life her mother wasn’t the classic June-Cleaver type who baked cookies and bandaged scraped knees and kissed away bad dreams. She also suspected the fault lay with a sin Sarah didn’t understand—a sin that kept her mother from loving her.
The story of Sarah’s birth is a family scandal everyone knows but no one talks about. Now Mom is dying, and Sarah hopes to repair their relationship before it’s too late. Regardless of the cost, Sarah must know if it’s too late to earn her mother’s love. Unfortunately the truth might be too painful to bear. Or worse, Mom truly despises her for the sin she represents, and Mother and Daughter, so much alike, are too broken to be fixed.

These stories sound like they would be griping. The subject matter is unfortunately more common that we could care to admit and forgiveness and repair of relationships is such an important skill. Thank you Teresa for facing off the issues! Going to check out your work.

The issues you tackle are incredibly important Teresa. Forgiveness and repair of relationships are life skills that we all need but unfortunately not everyone has. Thank you for facing off the issues!
