Ms. Ingalls is currently working on her third novel, a series of short stories, and a special story written for each of her eight grandchildren. Ovarian cancer her been a part of her life for the past ten years, but “it does not have my life.” By birth she is a Californian, her heart is in Minnesota, and now a happy golfer and gardener in Florida. She loves to read, knit and crochet, but writing is her true passion.

“DAVIDA”

davida

BOOK BLURB:
Augustus Saint-Gaudens was the premier American sculptor from 1880-1920. Though married he fell in love with his model, Davida Johnson Clark and their love affair lasted more than twenty-five years. This fictionalized account will introduce the reader to some of the great art, historical facts, and the moral values of that era.

The author is the great-granddaughter from this union and her purpose in writing the book is to bring recognition to Davida and remove any negative stigma to her. Her grandfather suffered his whole life from being labeled a bastard while growing up and this story is intended to remove that label.

How can a love affair last for such a long period of time? What affect did it have on his career? How did his wife and son cope with their being a second family?
This is a compelling and beautiful love story that has needed to be told.

      The month of February has been fabulous! Being in the spotlight brought new reviews for my book, new followers on my social media platforms, new purchases of my book (June the Prune and Lady Bird), new acquaintances and new experiences. I am more than humble for the support of #RRBC members and their followers. You inspired me to continue to give back what others have given to me. Thank you, Nonnie for selecting me for this honor. I have gotten so many comments from my friends about being ” On The Shelf with Nonnie.” I am looking forward to the upcoming virtual conference sponsored by Rave Review Book Club. On a personal note, I am getting ready to jet off to Paris, London, and Rome in June.
