Cynthia Davis teaches freshman composition at Christopher Newport University, which also happens to be her alma mater. Her patchy resume includes stints as a travel agent, burger flipper, youth worker, reporter, and a particularly long run as an elementary art teacher. She enjoys photography, good coffee, and making mosaic seahorses. She lives in an old house near the Chesapeake Bay with her husband, children, pets, and a cast of regular extras.
Fans of Sarah Dessen will love Cynthia Davis’s sequel to her novel, The Chrysalis. Under falling stars with popular Kevin on a cold New York night, Christina’s life seems deceptively clear. Then a mission trip to South Africa leads her to a tin shack church and a barefoot guy with an easy smile. Suddenly, everything depends on her answer to his question one desolate night under the Milky Way.
Fans of Sarah Dessen will love this summer camp coming of age story by Cynthia Davis. Christina accepted a job in the craft cabin with disadvantaged kids so she could become everything that she was not. She never expected to meet someone who appreciated the person she already was. The gift that Mark gives Christina is the confidence to make a decision that will alter both of their lives forever.
When Christina Brannigan and the summer camp counselors return to Camp Edson to help make Christmas for a group of displaced foster kids, will a freak ice storm and a power outage be the last events on the schedule?
