About When Robins Appear

With a lucrative freelance career and a loving family, Deborah Earle has a life many women would envy. But her daughter, Amanda, is heading to college soon, and Deborah worries about having an empty nest. She thinks another child might be the answer. Her husband, Richard, however, may not be willing to start over so late in life.

Amanda is excited about attending NYU next year, but she meets Graham, a handsome older boy, falls hard, and considers postponing her education to stay close to him. Her mother takes an instant dislike to Graham, but Amanda refuses to let her keep them apart.

As Deborah watches her daughter rush headlong toward heartache on an all-too-familiar path, the secrets lurking in Deborah’s past continue to echo in her present. When tragedy strikes, Deborah faces a future she could never have imagined.

 

 

 

My thoughts

Another gripping and unforgettable family life fiction book has consumed my time over the past day and I am hoping you will check it out.

When Robins Appear by Densie Webb is another amazing tribute to the relationship between women, mothers and daughters, and the secrets they keep and the choices they make. Told in alternating perspective we hear from Deborah and Amanda, mother and daughter, both at milestones in their life. Amanda is a senior in high school and is going to be leaving for college soon. Deborah, her mother is struggling with the fact that she is now going to be an empty-nester and possibly needs another distraction, considering having another child. As Amanda meets Graham, a new love, and begins to spend more of her time with him instead of her studies, her mother becomes concerned about their relationship and attempts to try and keep them apart. When an unexpected tragedy occurs, Deborah starts to see secrets from her past start to reflect in her present life, and with much heartbreak, difficult decisions and an unexpected twist, both Amanda and Deborah learn the importance of communication, honesty and acceptance in their relationships and their future lives.

This is an extremely relatable story for any mother-daughter relationship, it’s as if it is taken out of any one of our lives and masterfully put on paper. It’s a tale about everyday life that develops into unexpected drama with characters that are so human and so real I felt like I was right there, in the story with them. Densie Webb’s writing is so captivating that you really don’t even know you are actually reading, but you find yourself just turning pages in rapid succession to find out what happens next, completely consumed by the story. I can’t explain the emotions I felt reading this, because everything felt so real that I found myself overwhelmed at times with just my own feelings (in a good way). This was my first encounter with Densie’s writing, and I will definitely go back and check out her first two novels. If they are as heartfelt and emotional and true to life as this one, I know I am going to love them. This is a beautiful story about mothers and daughters, their relationships, how we hide and keep secrets and how we find a way to work through the problems. I can’t tell you what happens here or I would ruin the whole thing, but what I can say is just read it, this one will stay with you for a while, and you will probably learn a few things from it as well. A beautiful family life drama, 4.5 star rating from me. Definitely recommend.

I just would like to thank Densie Webb, Suzanne Leopold of Suzy Approved Book Tours and Red Adept Publishing for the gifted copy of this book for my unbiased and honest opinion for review.

About the Author

Densie Webb (not Denise) has spent a long career as a freelance nonfiction writer and editor, specializing in health and nutrition, and has published several books on the topic. She grew up in Louisiana, spent 13 years in New York City, and settled in Austin, TX, where it’s summer nine months out of the year. She is an avid walker  (not of the dead variety, though she adores zombies, vampires, and apocalyptic stories), drinks too much coffee, and has a small “devil dog” that keeps her on her toes. She has arrested development in musical tastes and her two grown children provide her with musical recommendations on a regular basis

The fiction bug bit her several years ago and she now has three published novels. The first, a romantic suspense, titled, “You’ll Be Thinking of Me,”was published with Soul Mate Publishing in 2015 and was a finalist in the Colorado Romance Writers 2016 Award of Excellence. Her second novel, a paranormal romance, titled, “Le Rémede” was published with Wild Rose Press in 2018. Her third novel, and her women’s fiction debut, “When Robins Appear,” is slated to be published October 20, 2020 with Red Adept Publishing.

Her flash fiction submission, title, “The Prank” was a runner up in the Women on Writing Fall 2019 Flash Fiction contest. She also had her essay, “Boob Job Regrets: In appreciation of Your Previously Small Chest,” included in an anthology compiled by author Randy Susan Meyers, titled “Women Under Scrutiny: An Anthology of Truths, Essays, Poems, Stories & Art.” All proceeds from the anthology go to Rosie’s Place in Boston, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women.

 She is currently working on novel #4.
