Author Reading in Gulfport
April 12, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Author Bette Lischke will hold a book event for her new novel, IN THE WATERS OF TIME, in Gulfport at 3031 57th St. South on Sunday, April 12 from 5:00-7:00 pm with a reading at 5:30 pm.
In her debut novel, In the Waters of Time, a young woman learns that sometimes one’s soul gets a second chance for love. Lischke blends history, mystery, romance, tragedy and love in a luminous story of two women whose lives and souls are linked across time and sea.
In modern day Portland, Maine, Jane Eliot is a sensitive young wife haunted by vivid, disturbing dreams – and by grief over her inability to conceive. During a holiday on Peaks Island, Jane’s dreams multiply and intensify, pulling her into a dark current of visions that surge through her waking hours. Mesmerized, Jane “sees” through the eyes of Elizabeth, a young Victorian woman who recklessly abandons her marriage and children in pursuit of love. As Jane re-lives the passion and calamity of Elizabeth’s last days, she struggles to chart her own course for life.
In addition to writing fiction, Bette Lischke is a singer, songwriter, and storyteller. She has written and recorded a CD of original songs and produced a three-act play for children. Bette also has worked as an executive recruiter, social worker, and hypnotist to touch lives and lift souls. In the Waters of Time is her first novel.
