Annabelle's Spirit: Dreams in the Mist
AnnaBelle's Spirit" is the follow-up to "The Journey, The Dreams, & AnnaBelle" The writing in this book takes the story to the next level, adding more depth to the already troubling life of AnnaBelle and her two daughters. It tells of her first husband, how he destroyed her young dreams, and forever altered her faith and trust in men. Leaving her with two small children, and a mountain of debt that she alone would have to deal with. Then came the "step -dad from hell." The girls jokingly referred to him as "Daddy Dearest." He ruled their lives for nine miserable years before they were rid of him. AnnaBelle moved her daughters from St Petersburg, eventually settling in Indianapolis. AnnaBelle's work brought her in contact with politicians, movie stars, racers, and then the DiMaggio family after a move to San Francisco. There would never be another man in her life to tell her what to do, or intimidate her daughters. Although this story focuses on AnnaBelle, it eventually includes life from Carolyn's perspective. It follows both women on a journey through a lifetime of challenges, dreams, and temptations. One of Carolyn's decisions continues to haunt her dreams, as well as her waking hours. Both she and her mother possess the gypsy spirit that would prove to be difficult to control at times. The continuing saga of the Wicker and Bollan women attests to the strength of these families. From 1924 to 2007, a lifetime of dreams, a lifetime of journeys. Throughout the book you will find the subtle humor Carolyn uses in everyday life. You will also find family photographs that span the timeline of the story. As with her first book, she hopes this will bring the family to life for her readers.
