Run, Cissy, Run

You would think Cecilia LaRoque has it all: a loving father, wealth, beauty, social position and a devoted suitor.  She doesn’t.  Crushed by a cold and critical mother who soon absconds to live with a dissolute lover, ‘Cissy’ struggles to prove herself worthy of love and respect.  She could not have foreseen in her teenage years that the genteel and privileged life she had led would come to a crashing halt with the outbreak of Civil War, a bitter struggle that would tear her world apart.  Despite the hardships and inherent danger, she seizes the opportunity to forge an unorthodox role for herself as a spy.

Yesterday’s Magnolia

“It’s a shame to have so damned much and yet so little.”  An eastern North Carolina farmer’s daughter, Margot, streaks like a comet into the life style of the rich and famous.  Her beauty and exuberant, zestful personality gain her entrance to boardrooms, the White House, a corporate jet stocked with Cristal champagne and caviar, a villa in Italy, and marriage to one of the world’s most powerful men.  Maurice, the spurned suitor, seeks friendship and comfort from Margot’s sister, Jo, a quiet, bookish art history teacher.  Jo envies them both for their ready charm, looks, wealth, glamour, and exciting lives never realizing that it is she who is envied for a life that contains the things that they themselves have not attained.  Like the comets they so resemble both Margot and Maurice are consumed by the friction of life, leaving Jo to remember the magic moments they brought to a more conventional path.
