Book Description

Peace by Piece by Carol Fragale Brill

The Indie Book of the Day for 8th of July, 2014!

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

Six years after Thomas’s unfaithfulness in college, Maggie has nearly given up on love.  Enter Izzie, a motherless eight year old, and every maternal instinct kicks-in. With Donald, Izzie’s dad, Maggie waits for the thrill—for anything magic: a spark, a quickening, a quiver racing up her spine. The magic never comes, but it is precisely the ordinariness of his kisses and subsequent proposal that make her feel safe. She imagines that loving Izzie is enough to finally lock Thomas out of her heart.  Over time, Donald sways Maggie to quit work and be a stay-at-home mom to Izzie, dismisses her desire to finish her degree, cajoles her to wait for the right time to have a baby.  Izzie is the center of her world, but some days Maggie cannot think over the roar of her biological clock. Unable to win the baby debate, she returns to college, graduates, and accepts a teaching job. She has what many women long for: the house and minivan, the daughter and spouse, a career and steadfast girlfriends.  But there’s an empty space inside that no amount of bingeing can fill.  By chance, Maggie and Thomas, also a teacher, reconnect when Maggie attends a teacher’s conference in her college town, a handful of miles from where her heart first came alive—and where it was irrevocably shattered. Can Maggie and Thomas mend their relationship? And, will she return to her loveless marriage for the sake of the daughter who has become her own, or this time around, will she trust Thomas and follow her heart?

Read Sample

I am the author of two novels, PEACE BY PIECE and CAPE MAYBE, an Amazon Women’s Fiction Best Seller. I love to read and write women’s fiction.

Always top of my gratitude list is my husband Jim, our marriage, and living in Cape May. Writing fiction lets my creativity come out to play. Writing non-fiction keeps me humble, helps me make course corrections, and see everywhere opportunities to learn. My fiction received recognition from Poets and Writers and was a reader’s favorite for The Best of Philadelphia Stories. My works have also appeared in Wide Array, New York Journal of Books, the Press of Atlantic City, and various online e-zines and business journals. I earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
