Read Alternate Endings Here
I asked and everyone told me — no loving woman would ever choose herself, not when her adult son and her elderly mother both need her. Every woman I talked with about Calyce Tate, the lead character in my new novel, told me adamantly that Calyce would sacrifice herself every time for her family. They all said that good women are The Giving Tree until they are stumps. Any story offering the possibility of an alternate ending for a loving wife and mother is not only wrong, and implausible, and selfish — but treason.
Forget the story… even my question made women angry.
I invite you to read the first installment of Alternate Endings and tell me if you agree. Here’s the link.
