Good day everyone! Today at Peeking Between the Pages we have Melissa Foster, author of Megan’s Way, joining us with a guest post. I reviewed Megan’s Way yesterday (my review) and it was a good read for me. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more of Melissa’s work. The story revolves around a woman who has to make the choice of her life – whether to put her family through the agony of watching her die or taking matters into her own hands as well as being a story of friendship. I know that sounds sad but really the book has a hopeful feel to it. I didn’t bawl my eyes out so you all are safe. So, let’s sit back, relax, and enjoy Melissa’s guest post on one of her passions, The Women’s Nest…
We live in a very busy world, run by social media and too many daily obligations to count on one hand. While we’re busy Tweeting and updating our status for the masses to see, there’s something that’s falling behind. Friendships. I’m not talking about the friendships that can be maintained with 140 characters or less, or the friendships that rely on posting every step you make from a bathroom break to stopping at Starbucks. I’m talking about friendships that involve sharing of your thoughts, dreams, and heartaches. Friends to whom you can turn and get serious answers and advice. I’m talking about friendships with women who take the time to answer your questions in a more private setting.
The Women’s Nest is a community for women only, where women gather to support each other and share in the ups and downs of daily life. The Women’s Nest is chock full of women just like you, who have little time to leave the house and share a cup of coffee with their friends because real life gets in the way, but they crave those intimate conversations that our husbands and significant others simply don’t have the desire, or the time, to listen to—not to mention that men and women think a bit differently (sorry, guys).
I founded The Women’s Nest as a free community for women where every member is accepted for who they are. We have a spam-free environment without links and sales on our forums. We talk about everything from education and careers to parenting and books. We have a book club and during the school year we have healthy challenges for all to take part in. We have health experts, physicians, and financial experts who provide free advice to our members. Mostly, though, we offer a caring community where all women fit in.
Come check us out, chat with me, and escape the chaos of your daily life! http://www.thewomensnest.com
Thank you so much for being here at Peeking Between the Pages today Melissa. I think The Women’s Nest is a great place for women to gather and it’s nice that there is such a place out there for them. It’s great that you founded it and that it’s doing so well!
About Megan’s Way
What would you give up for the people you love?
When Megan Taylor, a single mother and artist living on Cape Cod, receives the shocking news that her cancer has returned, she’s faced with the most difficult decision she’s ever had to make. The love she has for her daughter, Olivia, and her closest friends will be stretched and frayed.
Megan’s illness reawakens the torment of her best friend, Holly Townsend, whose long-held secrets and years of betrayal come back to haunt her. How does one choose between a daughter and a life-long best friend? Can the secret she has been keeping be revealed after years of lying without destroying everyone in its wake? Meanwhile, fourteen-year-old Olivia’s world is falling apart right before her eyes, and there’s nothing she can do about it. She finds herself acting in ways she cannot even begin to understand. When her internal struggles turn to dangerous behavior, even the paranormal connection she shares with her mother might not be enough to save her – her life will hang in the balance.
Megan’s Way is a journey of self discovery and heartfelt emotions, exploring the depth of the mother-daughter bond, and the intricacies of friendship.
