Maude’s story is the story of American women changing through the 20th century. Victorian mores constrain, wars destroy, the depression devastates, and the migration from rural to urban living overwhelms. But Maude survives and, in the only way that matters, overcomes. It’s a really good book!
In 1906, I was barely over fourteen years old, and it was my wedding day. My older sister, Helen, came to my room, took me by the hand, and sat me down on the bed. She opened her mouth to say something, but then her face flushed, and she turned her head to look out the window. After a second, she squeezed my hand and looked back in my eyes. She said, “You’ve always been a good girl, Maude, and done what I told you. Now, you’re going to be a married woman, and he will be the head of the house. When you go home tonight after your party, no matter what he wants to do to you, you have to let him do it. Do you understand?”
I didn’t understand, but I nodded my head anyway. It sounded strange to me, the way so many things did. I would do what she told me. I didn’t have a choice, any more than I had a choice in being born.

About the Author
A Michigan native who studied writing in school, Donna first came to Vegas to make costumes and soon was weaving the stories she heard in the back of the girls’ dressing room into her first novel. Now she is the author of The Alexandra Merritt Mysteries, which include ‘The Last Two Aces in Las Vegas’, ‘The Las Vegas Desert Flower’, ‘The Las Vegas Special’, ‘Rough Ride in Vegas’, ‘M.I.A. Las Vegas’ and the recently released “The Las Vegas Sophisticate’.
Donna has written several other stand-alone thrillers, ‘Desperate Ambition’, about a political assassination, ‘The Right Society’, about a devout Christian family that moves into a religious community and finds it’s easier to get in than it is to get out, and ‘The Other Hand’, about a famous athlete who leaves his family for a young, virginal girl. Shortly after they divorce, she winds up slaughtered. He is the primary suspect, but not the only one. Donna has a popular series of historical romances, The Manhattan Stories, ‘Jessica’, ‘Pillsbury Crossing’, ‘The Cabin’, ‘Kimimela’, ‘D’Arcy Curran’ and ‘Curran Glen’. A seventh in this series will be released soon.
