reads from her new novel, Land Mines.
Carolyn James' life looked great -- new job at a law school, marriage to a doctor, two children, living in a McMansion outside Boston. Then her husband leaves her for another woman, stripping her of her money, stability and self-esteem. Carolyn begins keeping a "divorce journal" to cope and rebuild, writing about her experiences with separation and divorce. Land Mines is Sheilah Vance's second novel, after Chasing the 400. She is a lawyer practicing in Philadelphia and an adjunct professor at Villanova University School of Law.
