The Stormy Side of Theodocia (1 Viewer)

T

Theodocia

Description:
Theodocia McLean was born on Beals Island, in Downeast Maine, in 1954. After being adopted twice, she longs to be connected to the Island and to her roots.
Her love for writing began when her fifth grade teacher captured her imagination with creative writing assignments while she was living away from home in a harsh, punitive private school environment.
A song that she sings everyday is the only link that she has to Clara, her one special friend, who made daily life bearable for a short time in that dreadful place. She longs for the day when someone, even a stranger, will show her the proof that she desperately needs on whether her friend really died that terrible day.
‘The Stormy Side of Theodocia’ deals with her life from 1954-1977. Writing is therapy and telling her story takes her experience out of the shadows into the light. She hopes that her readers will muster up the courage to tell their story and thus begin their own healing journey.
