Batko — Cow Path to Heaven

Cow Path to Heaven
by Jeanette M. Batko

Cowpath to Heaven


Cow Path to Heaven is like collaboration by Erma Bombeck and O’Henry. Its thirty-four stories twist from whimsy to wonder, mirth to message, silly to somber. Expect the unexpected – an alien dog, baby bottle bowling pins, a shattered glass eye. Jeannette Batko’s poignant words will tickle your funny bone, touch your soul, and entice you to spin your own stories in the ancient Hawaiian tradition of talk- story.

by Patricia Sheehy 

Veil of Illusion

A story of love, betrayal and forgiveness across lifetimes. Things aren’t always what they seem. And when we go looking for answers, we may find more than we bargained for.

As Natalie struggles against her mother’s deceit and demands, she finds herself torn between misguided loyalty and a desperate need for love and acceptance.  [more]
