As you can see by the new covers there’s a similar theme. Each features a woman.
There is a good reason for that. After rereading the series, I realized, my story was really about the women. While on the surface it is a family saga, a thread weaves throughout the series—it’s about how women in this country have progressed over the last century. The Coulson women evolved, they made mistakes, they struggled, they loved, they suffered loss, they confronted challenges, and they persevered.
The Coulson women in book five had come a great distance from where they had begun when Mary Ellen married Randall Coulson in book one.
While the family’s patriarch, Randall Coulson, may not have imagined his family’s future would turn out as it did, I’d say for the women—and the family—they had come a long way, baby.
