The third of four children, Wanda Pothier-Hill was born and raised in Leominster, Massachusetts. In 1991 she married her high school sweetheart and they started a family a few years later. Wanda earned an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Goddard College in Plainfield, VT in 2007 and a BA in English with a minor in Ancient Studies from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA in 2004.
Her passion for writing and the initial ideas for her first book began during her earliest college years as she pursued her associate degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences from Mount Wachusett Community College in Gardner, MA, which she earned in 2001. "The Road Home" is her debut novel.
This book pulled me in from the first page. I am not a "reading for fun" kind of person, and I read it in 3 days, even with a job and 2 kids! The author writes so descriptively, you feel like you are in the story. Great book!
"The Road Home" is very well-written and moving. The main character, Karen, struggles to make a safe and loving home for herself and her young son. You will cry with her, share in her struggles and celebrate with her.
I could not put this book down!
This book is an excellent story about a single woman with serious problems and a small son to take care of. The story chronicles her struggles to improve her life and overcome the many obstacles she faces in the process. It was written so that I was able to feel both angry and sympathetic towards Karen, the main character. Buy it!
