My Mom is the map of my life, the geography of my heart and the best of every heroine I've ever written about. She is with me every day of my life, especially here in our tree house on the lake, I feel her around me with every rustling of the wind in the trees.
Mom would love it here - she'd love watching the birds flocking to the feeder every morning! She is still the most beautiful woman I've ever had the privilege of knowing & loving.
With ardent love and my deepest respect & admiration,
La P'tite (Dina:)
