Mother Extraordinaire
Love Covers a Multitude of Sins
by Beth Carol Solomon


On a hazy summer morning in 1961, amidst a visit from her best friend Brenda and Brenda’s infant daughter, Kelly’s world shatters in a single moment. A mundane trip to the grocery store to replenish milk turns into a nightmare as Kelly returns to find devastation in place of her cozy apartment complex—her cherished friend and her own daughter Donna Jo lost to the merciless flames. Left with only Brenda's baby, a mirror image of her lost child, Kelly makes a life-altering choice in the blink of an eye and claims the child as her own. A decade later, the past resurfaces when Brenda's widowed husband Paul reaches out, igniting a storm of conflicting emotions within Kelly. Despite the deep bonds forged with her “adopted” daughter, the guilt and haunting shadows of the past refuse to release their grip. And then there's the enigmatic presence of an old homeless woman, a witness to Kelly's actions, who threatens to reveal her deepest darkest secret. This story is a saga of love, family, forgiveness, and redemption against a backdrop of tangled emotions and unforeseen dangers. As Kelly navigates the intricate web of her choices, the narrative twists and turns, revealing the enduring power of love to conquer even the darkest corners of the human heart.
