9781475256710: Unfinished Conversations

"Unfinished Conversations" follows Emily across the country in her quest for substance and love in late twentieth century America. Her destiny sets its own rhythm, plays its own melody, and writes unexpected lyrics. As a child of a toxic family deep in the Appalachians, Emily dreams of exploring the other side of the mountain, of being a neurologist, of having a normal marriage with children. She thinks Brad is the perfect man to share that life until his unexpected egocentric career goals create a climate of indifference for her and their young son, Kevin. Brad professes his love for Emily, but his behavior never quite matches his words and their marriage rides on rocky shoals. When Wyatt, a young physician with an equally dysfunctional marriage, and Emily visit a park with their children, providence crisscrosses their lives and weaves immutable patterns only fate's timing could fashion. Emily learns the cost of loving two men and finds ways to re-invent her dreams in surprising twists and turns. irst edition

About the Author:

Dixie Guill Golden resides in NE coastal Florida. Publications include "Unfinished Conversations" and "Wingwalking: Poems." Visit her online at dixiegolden.blogspot.com.

From Kirkus Reviews:

" Golden's novel covers the emotional Tilt-A-Whirl of romance, heartbreak, dreams deferred and dreams realized  The epigraph forecasts the narrative's themes of hope, turmoil and fate: "Time binds us to a finite world, pushes us,  drags us, finishes us off, and forces unfinished conversations." In the opening scene, Golden introduces Brad and Emily  and showcases their tense marriage, filled with small, toxic moments. Golden's initial description of Emily as "Brad's  wife," indicates how Brad views Emily's identity as a mere extension of his own. As Emily struggles through conflict  with Brad, she fights to raise their young son, Kevin, and works to forget her unrealized dream of having a medical  career. When Wyatt enters her life, he proves a welcome contrast to Brad and adds significant drama. As a doctor, he  also reminds Emily of her forgotten dreams. Wyatt brings Emily hope, but readers will guess that her problems won't  dissolve easily. 

Golden's novel may strongly resonate with women who have lost their identity in ill-chosen relationships and family obligations-and who have fought to find and redefine themselves. The prose is clean and the dialogue clear  and fairly realistic. The convincing plot makes an emotionally difficult plotline all the more painful to read.  Occasionally, the narrative veers toward cliché, but the fast pace renders cloying moments ignorable.  Golden's novel will resonate with women who've found themselves by overcoming obstacles."
