Virginia (Zodiac Rising - Virgo), by Margaret Lake
All her life, Virginia liked things neat and orderly. She takes excellent care of her home and herself. It was only natural, then, that she should become a nutritional counselor, teaching others how to live healthy lives.

When Sam Houston walks into her office, Virginia sees a thirty-five year old man who looks much older, a man who is struggling to raise three little girls on his own and is worn out by the stress. Virginia is determined to save this man and his daughters, but it looks the Houston family might be saving her instead.

Summer's End and Other Poems, by Rebecca Leidner
A lifetime ago, a fortune teller cast my horoscope and from it divined two things: I would make money writing, and my answers would come from the Earth. Dear old Miss Finney was partly right. Such "truths" as I have found in my life since then have often come from an awareness of the beauty, order, and consoling power of the natural world. I am making these poems available on Kindle not to fulfill the other half of the prophesy (though I am deeply grateful to any who purchase my slim volume) but to perhaps make a connection with others who have been moved by life's great or small moments, and have turned to Nature for metaphor or meaning. I hope you enjoy my poems....
