Book Details

Take a step back in time to 1965 thru 1975—an era of Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, sex, drugs, rock-and-roll, rhythm and blues and free love. The younger generation is looking to effect change in society, while the older, more conservative folks want to retain the American way of life.

Annie Lee Holmes is struggling to navigate the times. She’s endured mean-spirited treatment that would have driven a weaker person crazy, and now she has children and wonders what’s next. One husband has walked out on her and his children. Another has died suddenly, leaving behind another child. Meanwhile, Annie is not quite sure how to be a human being…much less a single parent.

Misguided Intentions paints a vivid and moving story of Annie Lee’s life journey and its effects on her ever-changing personality as she learns to keep her eyes on where she’s going—not where she’s been or is at the moment.

A great read that will keep you wondering and interested through the end.
