On today’s podcast, I’m doing something a little different. I’m reading (narrating) one of my novels, Daisy Chain. You may or may not know that I came to writing always thinking I would ONLY be a novelist. Spinning stories is my first love, so I thought I would share this first love with you.
Here’s the trailer for the book:
“Daisy Chain is a Let-Your-Laundry-Mildew, Ignore-Your-Kids, Make-Your-Husband-Sigh-Loud-On-Purpose kind of book. That is, you won’t be able to put it down.” Rachel
“Stephen King, take note: here’s writing to aspire to. The richest, most effective prose takes you on a journey you’ll not soon forget in this wonderful novel. Not a purple word in the bunch, not a meretricious line to be found, nary a letter out of place. Mary E. DeMuth is the Rembrandt of novelists. Characters and story so profound you’ll wonder why the store bookshelves today are so filled with pulp.
(And by the way, I’m not Christian or Catholic. I’m not another prattling zealot. Just an average reader.)” E. Resnick
Back Cover Copy:
In this first book in the Defiance, Texas Trilogy, fourteen-year-old Jed Pepper has a sickening secret: He’s convinced it’s his fault his best friend Daisy went missing. Jed’s pain sends him on a quest for answers to mysteries woven through the fabric of his own life and the lives of the families of Defiance, Texas. When he finally confronts the terrible truths he’s been denying all his life, Jed must choose between rebellion and love, anger and freedom.
Daisy Chain is an achingly beautiful southern coming-of-age story crafted by a bright new literary talent. It offers a haunting yet hopeful backdrop for human depravity and beauty, for terrible secrets and God’s surprising redemption.
