Product Description

First comes the miracle and then comes the madness. The miracle is the birth of identical triplets, and the madness is all about money, of course. The year is 1916 and the newborn baby girls have become pint-size celebrities. Unfortunately, this small portion of fame soon leads to a much larger portion of greed, and the triplets are split up -- parceled out to the highest bidders. Two of the girls go to live in a hilltop mansion. The third girl isn't so lucky. She ends up with a shady family that lives in an abandoned work camp. That's how their lives begin: two on top, one on the bottom, and all three in the same small town. And when their worlds collide, as they must, the consequences are extreme.


"Tea Cups & Tiger Claws" spans fifty years and takes the reader from a shantytown to a gilded mansion, from dark desires to sacrificial love.

And there's no "check Facebook 1 million times" in perseverance, right? :-)

Great perseverance quote. Here are some more I saw on Goodreads:

"Giving up is the only sure way to fail." ~ Gena Showalter

"You know what I did after I wrote my first novel? I shut up and wrote 23 more." ~ Michael Connelly

"If you can quit, then quit. If you can't quit, you're a writer." ~ R.A. Salvatore

Ahh, I love the one by Michael Connelly. It's sure hard to do. Pulling my hair out right now over a gigantic epic fantasy MS. *grinds teeth* Why do I tackle such difficult and complex story-lines so early in my writer experiences? (rhetorical)
