Sweet Surrender

In Sweet Surrender, after all of her experiences and adventures, Mary has turned full circle and surrendered to the pull of family. It has been a journey that has taught her a lot including an acceptance of growing older (and wiser) and an understanding that you can never really run away from who you are…… it’s a wonderful story.
