Now she isMoreA TAPESTRY OF TRUTH is narrated by Annie Schreiber, a semi-functioning alcoholic and uncompromising narcissist who raised her children in the sixties and seventies with a Kool-Aid pitcher in one hand and a bottle of vodka in the other. Now she is dead and wandering in an afterlife that forces her to witness the choices she made which ultimately led to her only son’s brutal self-destruction.Through the journey of deconstructing the past in the hopes of releasing herself from the limbo of what she calls “non-existence,“ Annie witnesses events in present time which force her to relive key moments of her own history. Unable to cope with the realities of being a wife and mother, Annie begins to self destruct by embarking on a clandestine affair with her husband’s brother, who wrecks havoc in her life by tormenting her children and ultimately abusing her. Afraid of the consequences the truth might reveal, Annie swears her children to secrecy, and they unwittingly pay a high price for her conditional love and protection.A TAPESTRY OF TRUTH draws out layers of emotional conflict that in the end allow Annie to forgive not only those who have damaged her children, but also herself for abandoning them when they most needed a mother. In the end it reflects a family whose members are evolving and growing in ways which are complicated, but hopeful. Inspired by the work of Alan Ball, Richard Kramer, and Winnie Holzman, A TAPESTRY OF TRUTH is rich with scenes of black humor, stimulating dialogue, and the inner workings of a woman’s soul that teeters on the edge of redemption.This book is also available in paperback.
