Her stories weren't just words on a page - they were pieces of her.
When an author passes away, they leave behind a piece of themselves in their books – a legacy.
Stories that take the readers on an adventure, we fall in love, we experience strength and weakness, books filled with history lessons, and stories about finding oneself. The author lives on in our hearts and in our minds.
As readers we feel great sorrow, our favorite author is gone, there will be no more stories to come. Their books then become a treasure, our last link to them. We feel grateful, grateful they took us to places we can only visit through their imaginations.
Luckily for all, their stories continue on.
Rest In Peace Barbara Bickmore. You will be in our hearts for years to come.
"Barbara Bickmore died in Anacortes, Washington Feb. 23 at age 87. She began teaching English in NewYork and in 1985 she turned to writing, which she had wanted to do all her life. Barbara went on to author nine best selling novels published in 23 countries. If her books have any common theme, many of them being based on historical instances, it is that she took an average woman and threw slings and arrows at her, forcing her to rise to heroic heights."
