Thank you for visiting my Web site. I’m Beverly Stowe McClure, reader, writer, and former teacher. Most times, you’ll find me at my computer writing words that little voices whisper in my ears. Other times, I’m snapping pictures of wild life, clouds, and flowers, or playing with my cats. Also, check out my other blog where I post reviews and tours and all sorts of fun stuff. The Story of a Writer.
Enjoy your stay.

No Love in the Garden of Eden
Eden Rose has learned to deal with her mother’s criticism that she can do nothing right. What she can’t deal with are the arguments between her parents. To escape their angry words, she finds refuge in an old abandoned house. She always returns home, hoping her mother will love her one day, even though Eden’s not sure what the word love means.
Three other teens with problems also hang out at the Old House. Meeting Murphy, Toby, and Josh changes Eden’s world, and she begins to have faith in herself. Perhaps she can do something right, after all.
Thanks to the boys, she begins to understand the meaning of love. But will it be enough to save her broken home life?
Some really nice reviews are coming in. Here’s the latest.
“This book shows the mental psyche of teenagers with deep emotions.
McClure shows that ‘family’ doesn’t have to mean blood, it means love.”
I’ll be posting more. Stay tuned.
Please bear with me for a few days. I’m redoing this site and am so un-tech-savvy I’ve deleted stuff I did not intend to. One day, I hope to have everything back in order, much easier to read. Thanks for your patience.
