Singing Her Alive is a love story set in two time periods, presented as a fictional
memoir. The story takes place in Willimantic and Merrow.
The primary story begins in the late 1800s when fate throws two young women
together as roommates - in a shared bed - at a textile mill boarding house where
they have gone to work, far from home and family. Two generations later their
secret story comes to light when a granddaughter, narrator of the story, finds their
personal journals hidden in a closet as she helps her mother clean out their family
homestead to sell. The discovery of these family secrets sets the narrator on her
own journey towards identity and place. Love and sacrifice, choices and
consequences, are strong themes in this story.
