Ms. Hamilton came to my attention after publishing an Oprah Book Club novel titled, “A Map of the World” which contains one of my favorite quotes; ““I used to think if you fell from grace it was more likely than not the result of one stupendous error, or else an unfortunate accident. I hadn’t learned that it can happen so gradually you don’t lose your stomach or hurt yourself in the landing. You don’t necessarily sense the motion. I’ve found it takes at least two and generally three things to alter the course of a life: You slip around the truth once, and then again, and one more time, and there you are, feeling, for a moment, that it was sudden, your arrival at the bottom of the heap.” Having been at the bottom of a few heaps, I could completely relate to the characters and story.
I am really excited to share Jane’s remarkable story which will be an inspiration for all aspiring writers. Stay tuned!
