Cissy 
by Robin E. Mason

Published: September 20, 2016
Publisher: Independently Published
Purchase: Cissy

Evil words. Words that should never have been spoken. Words that she should not have heard.

But she did. And she believed them.

Everything changed when Cissy heard those words that day. She was five.

What torment is wrought when wicked words are spoken? Can Cissy’s ravaged life be redeemed? Or will she wreak havoc on all who love her?

Can the lie be undone? Is there a word powerful enough to break the curse and undo the unsavory heritage?

--> AUTHOR’S NOTE: Cissy is not easy reading. She faces evil and succumbs to it. She is seduced at a young age, and learns to wield her body to manipulate and wound those most dear to her. There are no graphic scenes, but neither do my scenes merely allude to what is happening. It is very much the Christian battle against evil. Cissy is the dark and gritty, high-tension climax to the unsavory heritage series.

Would you rather go to the future or go to the past?
The past. I love history and would love the chance to visit eras and places that I can only read about. I love doing research, but ya can only glean so much from reading—no matter how many tomes you pour through!

What’s your favorite book?
With such a vast array of “favorites” there are two that have stayed with me, passed the test of time. The first is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. I read that as a child and the message was powerful, and made a deep impact on me. The second is The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy. I suffered depression for many of my adult years, and when I was coming out of that, with counseling and an Rx, I “happened” to pick up a copy of this book at the store. It’s long, and I read it in a week! One of the things about depression is that when I was not busy doing something I was down. Meaning I vegged, usually in front of the TV. (I was still working full time, and my kids were adolescents at the time, and there was always something to do.) To focus enough to read through any book, let alone some 700 pages, was impossible. This book represents for me, leaving that depressive state behind, and enjoying my life. That was over twenty years ago, and I’ve never looked back. And Ms. Binchy remains one of my favorite story tellers for that reason as well.

If you could live in a fantasy world, who’s would it be? 
Mine. Because I already know everybody here, er, there. I know the characters intimately, and I can banish anyone if I need to. You’re welcome to visit anytime, Emilie! I’d love to have you for tea and crumpets!!!

(BONUS) What are you reading right now?
Reluctantly Married, by Vistorine Lieske. Posting a review blitz next week for all four books in the series.
