Oh, you want to know what it’s about? About! Okay …. the skinny:
So you think you’re too stressed? You think you’re too busy, stretched too thin, have no time for anything, let alone any time for yourself? Think again, weaklings, and quit feeling sorry for yourselves (wink):
Sarah Sloan McCorkle of Piney Point, TN is a smart, hard-working schoolteacher, a good wife and great mother with a hair shirt conscience who “married down”—according to her Southern aristocrat mother. Way down.
She’d tried to warn her. But you can’t tell someone like Sarah anything. She’s got a handle on everything, every molecule of her life. She understands everything at the cellular level. And way better than anyone else does.
One day this pretty blond paragon of purpose, self-control and vast knowledge inexplicably finds herself at the end of her rope, wholly drained and exhausted from the strenuous effort required to stay the course. To do the right thing, to juggle all of her onerous work duties, mothering responsibilities and cope with her constant marital aggravations.
Oh Yeah. Those. Those were a bit of an inconvenient, unexpected, inexplicable development.
What had happened? What was wrong with the picture? Fearing the “jig was up,” that she had somehow hoisted herself on her own petard, afraid that she actually might lose it (even her mind), that she just can’t take any more of the galloping 18-hour days, she lays a cunning plan to take some stolen Time Off, time to kick back and reflect. Time to run the numbers again, re-sift the evidence, signs and portents.
She’d missed something in the calculus. No problem. She’d fix it.
She scours the calendar. “Yes, right there, in the middle of July. Perfect!”
The events of Sarah’s very “eventful” Time Out from Time are hilarious, surprising, sad, excruciatingly suspenseful – even dangerous – and ring riotous drastic changes in the McCorkle family household.
“Twilight’s Indian Princess” is a funny, bitter-sweet story about an over-burdened mother and wife who is far too often “too smart for her own good” and–just so you remember–we’ll say it again: it is the FIRST IN A SERIES of stories to be published in coming months about a most remarkable woman.
True to say, there’s a little bit of Sarah in all of us.
