The story before the story…

What happened before A Family Affair began? Bestselling author Mary Campisi answers this question in her new Park Bench series. These short stories make the perfect park-bench read, and are named after her signature park bench covers.

In A Family Affair Shorts: Peace, Book Five, Charles visits Miriam and Lily, as he’s done for the past several years. Their time is ordinary and enjoyable, and passes too quickly. There’s already talk about the next visit and Lily’s fourteenth birthday in a few months. Such grand plans and dreams that will die on the icy road with Charles and create what can only be called fate as his two families converge… And that’s where A Family Affair begins!

Charles has written six letters that will reveal the choice he’s made in order to live a more authentic life. However, he dies before he can distribute the letters, and it will take years before they are discovered!

A Note from Mary

People always ask, why do I write? That’s simple.

As a child, I can still remember crowding around our black and white television with my brothers and sister, anxiously awaiting the annual Wizard of Oz movie. I was petrified of the flying monkeys and the wicked witch’s scary face, and that voice, but I was perplexed by the narrator at the beginning when he told viewers the first half of the movie would look different than the second. Ours never did—not until our black and white television died and our parents bought a colored one. (After much deliberation, I must add!) Then, I understood.

And that’s what writing has done for me; put the color in my life. It’s the gift I give myself, and it is the gift I wish to share with you… in full blown color.
