A Light on Altered Land
By Becky Bohan
Two retirees dodge prejudice and the law as love captures their hearts
Ellie Belmont, a retired college teacher, wants to leave the house she shared with her wife who died three years ago. Kathryn Kepler, a retired psychotherapist, finds life as a country club divorcée lonely. They meet by chance at a coffee shop and bond over downsizing. Sparks of attraction ignite on a road trip from Minnesota to California. After a romantic interlude in Yosemite, they must deal with the real world—Kathryn’s homophobic daughter, medical cannabis, and a run-in with the law. A love story about mature passion and personal integrity, A Light on Altered Land has readers and critics alike cheering for this winsome couple.
