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.”
See the whole review at Lit Pick.
I’ll be posting more. Stay tuned.
The book is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and most other stores.
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.

  1. Hello, Beverly, thank you for visiting my blog. Your book, above, sounds fascinating, great subject – I have many friends who are children’s and YA authors, having done a ‘Writing for Young People’ MA in 2007.

    • Hi, Liz. Sorry I’m so late in replying. Thank you for stopping by. Life’s been hectic lately, the good kind of hectic, and I haven’t kept up to date with my blogs. Working on that now. A MA in Writing for Young People sounds interesting. Children’s and YA authors are the best. They’re so friendly and helpful. Happy to meet you.

    I love the cover of the new book. Big time congrats on that, Beverly. You’re prolific. Go, girlfriend.

    • Thank you, Janet. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a purple cover before, but it fits the story just right. This story was many years in the making. Lots of changes.
      I’m reworking this blog and hope it will be easier to read soon.

  3. Congrats on being published by Chicken Soup. That’s a milestone!

    All the best with the publication of your newest YA novel. You must keep very busy with all your blogs.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I appreciated your comment!

    • Thank you, Allison. I love the Chicken Soup books. They have such inspiring stories. This is my third acceptance. So happy about it. Yes, I have too many blogs and am planning to make some changes this year. Thanks for stopping by.

    Just a note…I’m writing a story also. Dream Walkers…should be the title. Anyway…what happens to the Dreamer is this….she wakes saying the name of someone she’s never met. She keeps repeating the name pulling it from the dream world to this….sometimes she has to write it down to remember it if the name keeps surfacing throughout the day …

    • Hi Susan. It’s great that you’re writing a story. The title sounds interesting. Dreams always fascinate me. Intriguing idea. Dreaming about someone with an name I didn’t know would sure make me curious as to how I came up with the name. Good luck to you with your story.
