Half Of What You Hear By Kristyn Kusek Lewis

SYNOPSIS

Greyhill, Virginia—refuge of old money, old mansions, and old-fashioned ideas about who belongs and who doesn’t—just got a few new residents. When Bess Warner arrives in town with her husband Cole and their kids, she thinks she knows what to expect. Sure, moving to Cole’s small hometown means she’ll have to live across the street from her mother-in-law, and yes, there’s going to be a lot to learn as they take over Cole’s family’s inn-keeping business, but Bess believes it will be the perfect escape from Washington. She needs it to be. After losing her White House job under a cloud of scandal, she hardly knows who she is anymore.

But Bess quickly discovers that fitting in is easier said than done. Instead of the simpler life she’d banked on, she finds herself preoccupied by barbed questions from gossipy locals and her own worries over how her twins are acclimating at the town’s elite private school. When the opportunity to write an article for the Washington Post’s lifestyle supplement falls into Bess’s lap, she thinks it might finally be her opportunity to find her footing here…even if the subject of the piece is Greyhill’s most notorious resident.

Susannah “Cricket” Lane, fruit of the town’s deepest-rooted family tree, is a special sort of outsider, having just returned to Greyhill from New York after a decades-long hiatus. The long absence has always been the subject of suspicion, not that the eccentric Susannah cares what anyone thinks; as a matter of fact, she seems bent on antagonizing as many people as possible. But is Susannah being sincere with Bess—or is she using their strangely intense interview sessions for her to further an agenda that includes peeling back the layers of Greyhill’s darkest secrets?

As Bess discovers unsettling truths about Susannah and Greyhill at large, ones that bring her into the secrets of prior generations, she begins to learn how difficult it is to start over in a town that runs on talk, and that sometimes, the best way to find yourself is to uncover what everyone around you is hiding….

STUPIDITY KNOWS NO BOUNDS BY JOSEPHINE OSEI BONSU

                       I AM SICK OF THESE MORONIC BEHAVIORS

 

NUDITY IN PUBLIC: I knew there were stupid people living among us but i didn’t know they were this many. We now live in a world where most women and men think that the word SEXY means Showing your Nakedness to the WORLD. Especially women who are supposed to be role models go out with half-size of a handkerchief covering their nipple and they call that a dress and the worst of all, they go out there wearing see through gowns and sometimes  without any underwear.( WHAT IN THE HECK IS THAT ). I hear some people saying that you have to love your body ” Yes I agree with that ” and be able to show it off but to whom and where is very important? And to think that most of them are married and some have children and their stupid husbands are Ok with it so they even takes them to public events with those rags on.I know you must love your women but really? Why don’t you all go out totally naked ( I mean with nothing on? ) After all,  we came to this world naked.       Continue reading “STUPIDITY KNOWS NO BOUNDS BY JOSEPHINE OSEI BONSU”
