With the Abigail Phelps Series, author Bethany Turner had the unique opportunity to bring together in one series of books all of the pop culture places and things with which she has ever been obsessed. We should have known it would come to this...
Her first writing award was in the 2nd grade - at a State-level contest, students were given the assignment of writing about any living person they would choose to have lunch with, and why. While do-gooders all around her chose Reagan, Thatcher, and Gorbachev, Bethany chose John Stamos - yes, Uncle Jesse. Her obsession with pop culture continues more than 25 years later, and Bethany is proud to say that John Stamos ignores her on Twitter and Facebook, even to this very day.
Bethany is a born and bred Kentucky girl who relocated to Colorado in 2001, three years after meeting the love of her life in a chat room - back before anyone knew that wasn't a good idea. Thankfully, it worked out in this case, and she and her husband are the proud parents of two boys.
"The very first time you met me you knew that he would never be the same again, didn't you? For the record, I was never the same again either. And while times have changed and opportunities have been lost, I still know in my heart of hearts that I never will be. But we can't go back, and we can't undo. What's more, I don't really want to. While my life is not perfect, it is uniquely, ridiculously mine, and I would not trade it."
Abigail Phelps has written her memoirs, but the world has never heard of her. So why should anyone care? Perhaps no one would, if the letter in which Abigail reflects on changing times and lost opportunities weren't addressed to Jacqueline Onassis, and the man who would never be the same weren't John F. Kennedy Jr.
Put aside all you think you know and jump into the greatest love story the world has never known.
