Marcia Carrington writes about the human condition, exploring what makes people tick, but in an upbeat and optimistic tone. She is an interested observer of popular culture, and fan of cinema from all eras and countries, especially from the 1930-1970s. She loves the movies and actors of the Hollywood silver screen, but has an express partiality to films from the major studios of this era such as Columbia, MGM, Fox, Paramount, RKO, and Universal.
Marcia is also a long-time soap opera aficionado, watching daytime, and night time serials from a very young age. She is also a food connoisseur, with a particular love of chocolate, and coffee. The morning coffee has always been a staple for Marcia, and something which she cannot do without. There is just something about the fresh aroma of coffee early in the morning, and anytime for that fact, which proves irresistible to her.

Marcia's latest book may be her best work yet. It touches on themes of the importance of heritage, closeness and support of families, and of those experiences beyond our consciousness. It is well worth the few minutes it takes to read this short book.

This short story was very descriptive and I found myself totally immersed. It was as if I was being led down the slightly lighted path toward a white door myself.
At the end of the story I felt a sense of melancholy, because most times when a loved one dies, we tend to put so much focus on what should or could have been instead of looking after those who are still with us and living each and every day.
A very, very nice story.

I've read Marcia's other works and very much enjoyed them and would recommend them.
This new short story is outstanding! I think it is her best work yet. There are many things I think we all would have loved to have said to someone, before they passed on. The thing is, we just never have the time, or simply don't take the time, to let our loved ones know how very much they are loved.
It is not so much the words we've said that we need to be concerned with, but the kind and loving words left unsaid. We all think those we love know we love them, but, wouldn't it be wonderful, to hear it too.
This is a touching story, a love story between a young girl, her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I wish I could have had the opportunity to tell my grandparents how much I loved them, but they passed on when I was very young. I remember them some, but only flashes of memories.
If you still have your parents, or grandparents, you need to read this book. Then, take the time to tell them how much you love them, and how very much they mean to you. Should something happen to them before you get the chance, you will regret it for the rest of your life.
Marcia. This was a great story, and you should be very proud of yourself. I know we, as your readers are!
