and an extramarital affair have in common?
Shores of the Heart is Marsh’s first self-published novel. She wrote it because ordinary lives are seldom the subject of such scrutiny, and hopes that by telling about Miranda’s life, women everywhere will see themselves and feel understood. She wanted to tell the story of a woman who has an affair and is not punished for it, and to describe sex in a sensual, beautiful way. She also wanted to write a book that celebrates motherhood. Perhaps a man would even pick up her book and gain some insight into the women in his life.
Thea Marsh is a clinical psychologist, a mother of four, and a bibliophile. Her background as a psychologist deepened her understanding of relationships and the conflicts women experience. Her experiences as a mother have shown her what sacrifices mothers make for their children. She cannot remember a time in her life without words, and her years of involvement in book groups led her to include some discussion questions at the end of the book.
