Artemisian Artist is the first in a series. They are contemporary stories dedicated to the spiritual energy these Goddesses can bring to our lives. All the books deal with the characters introduced in Artemisian Artist, with each succeeding vel focusing on one of the four women-Liz, Melissa, Terri, and Gerry. Together they weave a tapestry of women's empowerment through self growth and strong relationships. All the stories deal with real life crises and conflicts that impact these four ordinary women. In the first book, we get to kw all the women involved through the eyes of Liz Higgins, a young artist, who is beginning to achieve success in her career of choice. One fateful day, her path crosses those of two very different women. She is drawn to both of them, but has to make a choice between them. There is way to avoid hurting someone in her decision to be true to her heart.
