    Summary

    For over a century, two northern California farming families, the Airds and Belivets, have been at odds. They raised various crops over the decades, but both clans began to concentrate on growing and harvesting walnuts in the 1920s. Deadly gun violence haunted this feud in the 19th Century. Later, the weapons became words and societal backstabbing.

    Therese Belivet returns to the groves in 1967 to teach at the local high school. Low and behold, Carol Aird's daughter, Rindy, is in Therese's Honors English class. Will it be two cats in a burlap sack or a pair of lovelorn souls discovering romance among the Walnut groves?

    Summary

    Therese Belivet's work trip to the Maldives hasn't exactly started out like she expected; she's stepped off the plane and straight into a last minute job as wedding photographer to wealthy New York couple Abby Gerhard and Fern Wilder. There, she meets Abby's two best friends, Carol Aird and Genevieve Cantrell, and inadvertently involves herself in the secrets they're keeping from the friends and family around them. It would be so much easier to walk away, but there's something about Carol that makes that impossible. This is going to be a long two weeks on the island . . .

    Summary

    Therese Belivet flees the shadows of her youth, seeking a new life. The shifting America of 1962 is rife with opportunities for such rebirth. She's paid her dues; the hard-won Master's Degree and Teaching Credential top her resume. The twenty-two-year-old needs a chance, a break. Might a high-school English department head be her ray of light? Carol Aird of New York Public School District #3 has a discerning eye for talent and character; she seeks both at the New York State Teachers Employment Fair.

    Can a true, forever love blossom in an ordinary school setting?

    Summary

    Coven leader, Carol, has been single for too long. Aching with loneliness, she spontaneously turns a fascinating victim. Will this young woman make a proper mate? Can the newborn vampire adapt? More importantly, does she even want this life in the darkness?

    Below are my original Chapter 1 summary remarks. I'm leaving them to clarify the Chapter 1 comments for later readers.

     
    I will add a summary later via edit. What do you think? This might be a one-and-done, a shorty of a few chapters, or who knows. Feedback, please.

    Note to my readers: I will keep posting Feud chapters weekly.

    Summary

    Maybe seeing me again is as inconsequential to her as running in to an acquaintance from high school. After all, it was such a brief relationship, not even a relationship at all, just a—a thing. And when I was reckless enough to tell her that I loved her? Radio silence. No reciprocity. Over the past three years, I’ve come to the conclusion that all the intensity of emotion was one-sided, and Therese was just a straight girl who got caught up in the illicit thrill of being pursued by an older woman...

     

    This is my take on the "Therese never went to the Oak Room" prompt, but make it a modern AU. Tell me if it's working for you. I'm feeling rusty.

    Summary

    I got the idea of Carol smoking
    I don't know where the girls will take me
    it will be short or long chapters ..nothing will be excluded

    One is despaired, the other is deeply angry........but pain on both sides

     the title says it all, that's why Carol and Therese still haven't met by the 14th chapter.
    I brought out their feelings as I felt when I read the book...their love is also made of resentment, especially Therese who lets herself be dominated by her spirit of revenge
