Spanning three generations, Daisies is my debut novel. It begins in 1954 when an awkward Gwen Hisel falls in love with the affable Willie Barnett on the dusty Oklahoma prairie. What follows is a harsh life for the two youngsters as they struggle to make the best of their difficult circumstances. Tweny years later, Sheila Hisel, daughter of Gwen and Willie, marries Darrel McAllister. But while her parents' love for one another had seen them through tribulation and adversity, Sheila's own marriage crumbles under the strain of hard times. Now, if Sheila's son, Lonnie, ever wants to succeed in love, he must unravel the mysteries of two very different relationships to discover the secret to true happiness.
