Synopsis of Looking Through Water

Cover of the Novel Looking Through Water

From the back cover: “Allen juxtaposes the metaphysical and the mundane in her first novel, an exploration of human failings and superhuman gifts on the northern Oregon coast in the Forties. Addie Sawyer, a precocious child, startles her parents, Jake and Rose, when she innocently describes seeing her grandfather’s spirit at his funeral. Jake and his family are founding members of a strict Bible church in their small town, and, when Addie later reveals an electrifying healing touch, Jake fears that the source of her gifts is the devil. Rose vigorously disagrees, escalating the conflicts in the marriage and in the church. When Addie heals her brother from a life-threatening injury, events take a turn for the worse. The church elders take action to try to put a stop to Addie’s healing abilities. Tragedy follows, and as Addie weaves her way through the reactions, attitudes and frailties of those she loves the most, she must come to terms with the demands of such a gift, and make decisions about her own purpose and future.”

    Hi, just wanted to know…Is it that hard or easy to have a blog and sell your books using paypal?

      It’s easy to have a blog, but I don’t sell books directly from the blog at all–not yet, anyway. My publisher sells it online, or at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I’d like to learn more about selling online using paypal.
