WHEN WALLS TALK: Why Women Kill by Alexa Keating

Why do women, the nurturers who typically encourage and support their loved ones suddenly become killers? For some, it is not sudden; it is the last stop before their own murder. For many, the reasons lie squarely within the confines of greed, jealously and rage.

‘When Walls Talk’ begins at the gates of the Ohio Reformatory for Women where Lauren, an Investigative Journalist, was assigned to complete a newspaper series titled, ‘Why Women Kill.’ It provides up close and personal details about the thoughts and actions behind 5 different murders, as related by the women who committed them. There is both horror and gore and details that can only be repulsive, and there is the human side of people who appear to have made inhumane choices.

There is a trail of broken dreams and little hope in the lives of the people who arrive at the prison gates. Indeed, it is a broken road that leads to those towering fences with rolls of barbed wire and the slamming of those gates.

Only One Summer by Faye Aldridge

In the beginning, the author wrote this story as a private gift for her family members. The writer’s original purpose was sharing childhood memories and valuable life lessons with those whom she dearly loved. In time, friends read it and the consensus was that she should make it available to a wider audience. Desiring to convey the messages both pleasingly and beneficially, Faye gave the matter serious consideration. She decided to portray herself as the two main characters in the story, simultaneously, using an element of fiction in order to achieve her goal. She decided to express her childhood memories through the student, Rose, and her adult life lessons through the teacher, Abigail Worthington, and the book came to fruition. In the end, it was plain to see the book was not like works by Hemingway, London or Twain. It turned out to be just a simple little book but remember, the foolish things confound the wise…
