Fiction

Muffin, a 'throw away child' of our times, doggedly tries to create a family for herself, and to reconstruct the past. This unconscious refusal to let go of what never can be carries a high price ... her very future.

Mert Guswiler writes...

This is Muffin's story, a story of love as journey. Born illegitimate, reared and isolated in institutions and foster homes with no name of her own, no visitors from the 'outside' other than caseworkers, and no siblings, Muffin endures what she later refers to as the 'silent years.' She survives physical and mental torment, and emotional starvation. She dreams of freedom, longs to be claimed, and yearns for identity and place.

Her story is our story in its protrayal of the power of, and need for, love as acceptance, as compassion and as 'belonging' in each and every life. These needs when met empower every life whether that life is lived as child, journalist, psychiatrist, nun, or friend, the role of the primary and secondary characters in Muffin's life and story.   


Excerpt

"Love is all there is, there is nothing else. Nothing else at all, anywhere, either here or hereafter, but love."
- Doctor Harold McDonald



"That Love is all there is,

Is all we know of Love;

It is enough, the freight should be

Proportioned to the groove."
- Emily Dickinson [No. 1765]

Reader Reviews for "All There Is"

Reviewed by Janet Terry 1/23/2003
Kentucky bred and very close to me. I am originally from southern Ky, and am caught up in the excitement and theme of your book. In fact mine is actually dealing with pretty much the same issue. Orphan seeking love and acceptance. Perhaps we are kindred spirits.
