Romancing September Across the World – Day 17 – Kimberly Wenzler

3 Comments

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 17 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

I love to read. It is my favorite pastime. I spent decades devouring books, meeting memorable characters who made me laugh, cry and fall in love and I decided in my late thirties that I wanted to write my own stories. So, I’m really inspired by wonderful writing.

Changed to

My children. For years, I kept journals and wrote poetry to express myself, but I never took it a step further. When I had my children, I developed this great fear of dying and leaving them before they were grown. This fear inspired me to write my first full manuscript. I loved the process so much, I kept writing and haven’t stopped.

Now, through my love of reading, great writing inspires me to keep going.

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Both Sides of Love

 Book Description

Twenty-one-year-old Lizzie Adler had everything a young woman could want: she was beautiful, bright, and had both a fun and faithful best friend and a handsome boyfriend with whom she was deeply in love. In one fell swoop, calamity strikes, stripping Lizzie of all that she holds dear.  While driving with her best friend, Nan, en route to a party, Lizzie collides with another car.

The results are devastating: Nan doesn’t survive the accident, while Lizzie is forever crippled and disfigured.  Lizzie undergoes scores of surgeries and endures ample physical therapy, which ultimately leave her with a face and body she can no longer recognize.

Meanwhile, Daniel has just recently left Lizzie to stay with his ailing grandparents in England.  He intended to return to her arms after just one summer. Little did he know that, after months of silence from his beloved, he would receive a cold, curt break-up letter, devoid of explanation.

Unable to bear the pain brought on by memories of who she used to be, Lizzie casts her former identity aside forever and decides to go by the name of Beth.

Fast forward twelve years, and Beth is now an almost-happily-married stay-at-home mom with a five-year-old daughter, Stacy.  Boredom and pressure from her husband, Alan prompt Beth to join Stacy’s school’s PTA.  There, she meets Noreen: the first woman she is able to connect with since Nan’s death so many years ago.  Beth is delighted to have finally found someone with whom to face the travails of womanhood.

Unfortunately, friendship with Noreen comes at an unexpected, and painfully high, price.

Funny, candid, and full of surprises, Both Sides of Love is a must-read for anyone who has ever loved, lost, and loved again.
