From The Publisher
Actually, they go many places together only the blonde and the redhead, Sandy and Rusty, have no idea they are in divine company, at least at first. From the moment the two women met nearly six decades ago, just before Sandy marries Rusty’s brother, an undeniable cosmic energy makes them instant friends. As they embark on regular girl-time getaways, the two mortals find themselves pulled, drawn, and led into adventures, misadventures, and treasure discoveries that lead to one inevitable conclusion: They are not alone in their journeys.

A fascinating and philosophical memoir with no shortage of laughs, God of the Hinge: Sojourns in Cloud Cuckoo Land is a story of friendship, real-world enlightenment, and divine intervention of the Mt. Olympus variety.
