The Awakening Series

 

Tara folded and unfolded the pink referral slip. Her fingers made sweat marks on the paper. “I can’t be pregnant. I haven’t had sex.” 

Lisa M. Lilly’s heart pounding novel, The Awakening, tells the story of one young woman who finds her life at risk over a phenomenon she cannot understand.

Tara Spencer is at a loss. She has recently learned she’s pregnant, despite never having had sex. Her fiancé breaks up with her, convinced she cheated on him, and even her parents and best friend doubt her story.

But when Cyril Woods, a member of The Brotherhood religious order, claims to believe that Tara is still a virgin, she feels she has finally found understanding.

The Brotherhood sees Tara’s child as a possible new messiah—that is, until they learn she is expecting a girl. This revelation convinces them that the child is actually the anti-Christ, and they are determined to prevent Tara from giving birth at any cost.

As the forces aligned against her close in, Tara's only hope for survival is to solve the mystery of her pregnancy.  But who is her friend and who is her enemy?

Will Tara find answers before it's too late?

The Unbelievers (Book 2 in The Awakening Series) is now available.

  • I was hooked from Page 1. It is very fast-paced and it kept me interested at every turn. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

     

In my other life as a lawyer, my colleagues and I have a running joke. One day your client says you are the best attorney in the world, worth every penny (that would be the day you win a trial, an appeal, or a crucial motion), the next day you have no idea what you're doing and it's unbelievable you graduated law school (that would be the day the judge rules against you). Sometimes it's the same client sending those conflicting messages. As the author of Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff notes, if you take either praise or blame too...

Why I Admire My Mom 26 Sep 2014 | 3:57 pm
For the 3 1/2 years I've written this blog, the post that has consistently gotten the most hits is Why I Love V.I. As the title suggests, it's about fictional female private eye V. I. Warshawski, created by Chicago-area novelist Sara Paretsky. The post's popularity tells me I'm not the only person who likes to read about strong women. The devoted fan base of books and movies like The Hunger Games and Divergent underscores that. Which is why I decided to write more posts about women, real and fictional, whom I admire. And the more I thought about it,...
