COMING TO NETFLIX! Mother. Hero. Liar. Killer. How can you tell when all you have is... PIECES OF HER What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all . . . ? Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we? But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she’s been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she’s been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again. The police want answers and Laura’s innocence is on the line, but she won’t speak to anyone, including her own daughter. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumb trail of her mother’s past. And if she can’t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them. . . .

Bailey, a beautiful African American teenager grew up in Brooklyn NY's Red Hook projects in the mid 1960's and had more than her share of hurdles to leap over. Her mother was admitted into an insane asylum because of her inability to get over the guilt of a childhood incident. Her world was shattered when she received a call from the asylum notifying her of her mother's death. The suspicious circumstances were vague and sadly she was never provided with a valid reason. Bailey later personally experienced some of the asylum's underhanded dealings. Other tragedies befall Bailey that causes her to lose touch with her best friend and eventually with her own daughter. Bailey normally confronted her dilemmas and moved beyond them but plagued by depression, her mental state started to decline and she ended up in an insane asylum not knowing whether or not she would ever leave the place alive and see loved ones again. This emotionally overwhelming novel chronicles Bailey's challenges which includes heartbreak and homelessness. Is she strong enough to ultimately overcome any obstacle that stands in her way? Does she ever get out of the insane asylum and reconnect with lost ties from her past?
I was involved in a project called Start> Becoming a Good Samaritan. As the author of the book and curriculum, I had the honor and privilege of working with some of today’s foremost Christian thinkers, authors, and pastors on the subject of what it takes to live out your faith as a modern day Good Samaritan. Imagine spending time with Philip Yancey, Chuck Colson, Desmond Tutu, John Ortberg, Eugene Peterson, Joni Eareckson Tada, Rich Stearns, and Kay Warren—just to name a few—talking about practical, real ways to live like a Good Samaritan. It was insightful, instructive and inspiring. But most of all it was approachable and real! What does my experience working with these very prominent Christians have to do with writing the forward for Jim’s book? I’ll use those words again—“approachable and real…” —Michael Seaton; Author—Start> Becoming a Good Samaritan (excerpt from foreword)

Pieces of the Frame is a gathering of memorable writings by one of the greatest journalists and storytellers of our time. They take the reader from the backwoods roads of Georgia, to the high altitude of Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico; from the social decay of Atlantic City, to Scotland, where a pilgrimage for art's sake leads to a surprising encounter with history on a hilltop with a view of a fifth of the entire country. McPhee's writing is more than informative; these are stories, artful and full of character, that make compelling reading. They play with and against one another, so that Pieces of the Frame is distinguished as much by its unity as by its variety. Subjects familiar to McPhee's readers-sports, Scotland, conservation-are treated here with intimacy and a sense of the writer at work.
