More Lissa Power Novels
I anticipate writing additional novels that follow Lissa through marriage, motherhood, divorce, and beyond. Stay tuned!
What generation do you represent?
Although I expect Lissa’s adventures will resonate primarily with her peers, i.e., Baby Boomer women, I am hoping that Generation Xs and Millennials will find value in Lissa’s reflections on cultural values as they provide a counterpoint and precursor to their own evolving worldview. And perhaps older debut dads, i.e., men who become fathers at age 50+ (a surging demographic trend) will find solace in learning what it was like for an elderly father to relate to a young daughter.
