WINNER 2013 LOS ANGELES BOOK FESTIVAL

WINNER 2012 NEW YORK BOOK FESTIVAL

RUNNER-UP 2013 PARIS BOOK FESTIVAL

THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW: “A single bad decision can wreak havoc on one’s life. ‘The Battered Heiress Blues’ is a novel of a mother facing the tough decisions that may result in the death of her unborn child. With the results of a poor choice in husband, acts of violence, and the one chance at happiness in her future, ‘The Battered Heiress Blues’ is a riveting novel of the pain of the choices mothers make. RECOMMENDED.”

“Laurie Van Dermark’s debut effort is a home run! This story will touch your heart and leave you wanting more.” ~ Lynda Meyers, author of “Letters From The Ledge”

AUTHOR DESCRIPTION: Julia Spencer grew up sure of only one thing. She and her father were done- forever. Marked at a young age by the loss of her mother and the alienation of her father, there had been no contingency for sorrow. She was heir to the Spencer fortune. Weakness was not an option.

Henry Walker has a history of choosing business over pleasure, and his British mannerisms chafe against her southern sensibilities. When sparks begin to fly, she must navigate the troubled waters of unresolved conflict and a string of broken promises, but can she see her way clear to accept loss and acknowledge the truth?

Crippled by grief and blinded by sorrow, she pushes everyone away, but not before a precious gift is left behind that will change everything.
