Seventh Heaven – #tellafriend

On Hemlock Street, the houses are identical, the lawns tidy, and the families traditional. A perfect slice of suburbia, this Long Island community shows no signs of change as the 1950s draw to a close—until the fateful August morning when Nora Silk arrives.

Recently divorced, Nora mows the lawn in slingback pumps and climbs her roof in the middle of the night to clean the gutters. She works three jobs, and when her casseroles don’t turn out, she feeds her two boys—eight-year-old Billy and his baby brother, James—Frosted Flakes for supper. She wears black stretch pants instead of Bermuda shorts, owns twenty-three shades of nail polish, and sings along to Elvis like a schoolgirl.

Though Nora is eager to fit in on Hemlock Street, her effect on the neighbors is anything but normal. The wives distrust her, the husbands desire her, and the children think she’s a witch. But through Nora’s eyes, the neighborhood appears far from perfect. Behind every neatly trimmed hedge and freshly painted shutter is a family struggling to solve its own unique mysteries. Inspired by Nora, the residents of Hemlock Street finally unlock the secrets that will transform their lives forever.

A tale of extraordinary discoveries, Seventh Heaven is an ode to a single mother’s heroic journey and a celebration of the courage it takes to change.

    Bette! I live in SPain, and love your books, Iam 65, and a big fan of “southern style” stories, I found Fannie Flagg many years ago, Dayna Dunbar etc and found you too!! BUT, I am a little confused-where can I find your books/series in sequence, as sometimes I find I buy a book, and missed the one before, so I am all over the place. Is there a list of you Memory House, and Wyatsville series etc, so I can follow on?

    Hi Eileen! So nice to meet you. You can find a list right on the left hand side of the blog. Also if you sign up for my newsletter I send you an email with the list and I have a new FREE eBook called Stories that has the stories behind the stories and a reading list. I hope that helps!
