About The Book:

Maelle Woolley, a shy botanist, prefers plants to people. They don’t suddenly disappear. Raised on her grandparents’ commune after her mother’s mysterious death, she follows the commune’s utopian beliefs of love for all. Then she falls for attractive psychiatrist Zachary Kane. When Zachary claims her mother and his father never emerged alive from his father’s medical research lab, Maelle investigates. What she discovers will challenge everything she believes, force her to find strength she never knew she had, and confront the commune’s secrets and lies. What happened to love? And can it survive?

About The Author:

Margaret Ann Spence writes about women, the choices they make, and what happens next, based on her experiences living on three continents and both coasts of the United States. An avid baker and much less successful organic gardener, she draws on the mishaps and joys of these pursuits within the family mysteries unwrapped in her novels, Joyous Lies and Lipstick on the Strawberry. Lipstick on the Strawberry won the Romantic Elements Category in the First Coast Romance Writers 2015 Beacon Contest. The novel was a finalist for the 2019 Eric Hoffer Book Award and in the 2019 Next Generation Indie Awards.

  1. I’ve just read Joyous Lies by Margaret Ann Spence — a great read. What happened to the Hippy communities of the 1970s? And how do those survivors cope with the challenges of old age? Intriuging questions — but there is much more — rich characters and enticing plot lines. Margaret ‘s book asks questions that I haven’t come across before, and keeps the reader on edge. Do get hold of a copy as soon as you can!
