S.Tilghman Hawthorne’s Musings

Welcome to my Newletter!

Have you seen my latest book on Amazon? I’m so excited to have a new one to share with you!

It’s all about love and loss and finding your way through life. 
When Forever Ends is told through Brinn and follows him and Maggie as they try to figure out where their lives are taking them.

Think back to when you were in college or out of High School, and ready to fly.
Remember that perfect couple? There was always one.
Everything seemed so effortless for them. They knew what they wanted and succeeded in everything they tried.

But, was everything really so easy? What you see from the outside looking in is often quite different from the inside looking out! 

So, what happened next? Often, we never know. Our lives splash out and away. We lose track of people.
This story follows that perfect couple. What they did. How they lived. And how they handled it when things suddenly went in the wrong direction.

And there’s just a tiny touch of Magical Realism near the end that will fill your heart. You might even need a hanky! 

This story has only been out a short time but has already garnered three lovely 5 Star Reviews: 


“Susan Tilghman Hawthorne’s story reads like beautiful poetry as she shares deep emotions of the kind of happiness in life that we all pray for suddenly taken away by tragic circumstances. Reading Brinn’s story seemed so real, as if I was going through his experience myself. Ms. Hawthorne’s story offers hope that everyone of us will need at some time in our lives. I am glad that I experienced this well written story.”


“This was a heart wrenching and poignant story about Brinn and Maggie; how they met through marriage and life events. Even though it’s short, the writing is superb, and puts you right next to Brinn as he reflects on memories throughout their life together. It is very touching and ends in a very special way. I look forward to reading more stories by this author.”


“Ah, what a warm, comforting story. We can all relate to Brinn’s run of emotions & can also be ready to accept an unexpected ray of light. I read this on Christmas Eve & it added to the love & glow of Christmas-time.”

If you read it, I’d really love it if you’d take a moment and leave a review. On Amazon we have to have a lot of them before Amazon shows our books to others. So it would be a great help. 
Another great help would be to read the reviews already there and click “Helpful” below the ones that you found… well… helpful!

What Do You Love in a Book?

I love to read a tale that grabs me. Pulls me in. Sometimes kicking and screaming: no no I have other things to do… wait… one more chapter.
Does that describe you? 🙂
I’ve written you a story with a child in danger. The future of the world hangs in the balance. There is Adventure, Betrayal, Ambiguity.
A Prophecy is on the brink of being fulfilled: a child has been born who is predicted to bring the world into harmony and who will bring a time of peace and plenty. Does the Prophecy reveal Destiny? Or Treachery?
The godly men of the Brotherhood have been given a Vision. Their vision says the Prophecy was mis-construed. This child will not bring peace but will take all men into slavery and claim ownership of all wealth and order.
Gef and his companions have been hired by the Brotherhood to find this child and bring her to them for cleansing. While Gef questions how the Prophecy could be wrong, the fortune offered him is too great to turn down. Who is he to determine what the right thing is?
What is his Destiny? What is this Child’s fate? Is there a Secret not yet known?

The moon’s silver glow bathed the town of Silar with a cold light. One sleek pale ray stole through Merrith’s window to caress her soft cheek. She slept with the careless abandon of innocence, wrapped in the knowledge of her warm, safe world.
