The migraines were getting worse – Silver Threads

After what seemed an eternity, the cars began to move and they pulled up to the walkway. Brooke leaned forward, kissed the side of her mama’s cheek then reached for the door handle.

As it swung open Jennifer said, “Don’t forget, you’re riding with Ava’s mom to the Scout meeting.”

“I thought it was your turn.”

“It was. Lara’s doing me a favor so don’t forget to thank her, okay Sweetie?”

“Okay,” Brooke nodded then she slammed the door shut and hurried along to join a group of classmates.

The sound of the door ricocheted through Jennifer’s brain like a bomb blast. The migraines were getting worse. This one was close to being unbearable. Pulling out of the drop off line and circling around behind the Clarksburg Middle School she fixed her eyes on the car in front of her and used every last bit of energy she had to push down on the gas pedal and keep moving.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
