Lament for what novelist A.S.A. Harrison might have written

THE SILENT WIFE took A.S.A. Harrison ten years to write. What a triumph this first novel turned out to be. Unfortunately, she died in April, 2013 at the age of 65 two months before the book was published. Dipping into THE SILENT WIFE was like savoring the best hot fudge Sundae I have ever had, with lots of real whipped cream of course. The novel was a joy to consume. A.S.A. Harrison provided all of the ingredients that make a book extra special: the writing, the depth of the character, the plot, and the surprises. If you are hungry for a great literary novel, read this one. When you finish THE SILENT WIFE, you will be as sorry as I am that A.S.A. Harrison will write no more.

A suggestion: My novel, THE PENCIL ARTIST, is now available as a free download on, Smashwords and Barnes and Noble.
Try it, enjoy it, and if you are in the mood, review it.
