Lee Mossel is pleased to announce the release of Bed of Thorns, my new novel of bad choices, hard times, and consequences. Set in turn of the 20th century Ohio, Indiana, and central Montana, Bed of Thorns describes Rose Schirrack’s troubled life of making bad choices particularly when it came to men. A fateful decision—to become the non-working teenage madam of a brothel—led to still more hard times. Hoping to escape her past and change her circumstances, she makes a hasty bargain with a virtual stranger. Now isolated on a homestead in frontier Montana, Rose is caught between the stranger’s increasingly bizarre behavior, the growing pains and independence of her teenage sons, and the needs of a new lover, cowboy artist, Ev Marion. Bed of Thorns plays out with undercurrents of desperation, obsession, sex, paranoia, and revenge. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that bad choices have consequences. This self-published novel [createspace.com] (ISBN-13: 978-1516841073) is available on amazon.com.
