Willing Spirits by Phyllis Schieber
Explore Friendships Between Women and the Challenges in Life That They Face Together – Men, Marriage, Love & Children
March 1, 2009 – With the re-release of Willing Spirits, Phyllis Schieber firmly establishes herself as a premier author of women’s fiction.
The paperback publication of Willing Spirits is a grand encore to Schieber’s well received novel, The Sinner’s Guide to Confession.
Willing Spirits is no ordinary love story. It is a sensual and understanding story about the struggle to heal from failed maternal relationships, the passionate love women feel for their children, the lure of sexual desire and attachment to men who consistently disappoint, and the bond women share that makes it all tolerable. Suffused with humor and tenderness, Willing Spirits is a celebration of love in all its guises—between man and woman, between parent and child, and above all, between women.
Jane Hoffman and Gwen Baker, both teachers and in their forties, have a friendship that helps them endure. Years after Gwen is abandoned and left to raise two sons alone, she finds herself in love with a married man. After Jane is humiliated by her husband’s infidelity and Gwen must face her own uncertain path, the two women turn to each other.
Now, as each is tested by personal crisis, Jane and Gwen face new challenges—as mothers, as daughters, as lovers. And in the process, they will learn unexpected truths about their friendship—and themselves.
