Was by Beth Kander

Was by Beth Kander
$5.99 or FREE for Prime Members

A book that will draw you in with fantastical stories and leave you thinking about your own experiences and the life you have yet to explore.

Hospice nurse Wilma Jones gave up on having an extraordinary life long ago. A single mother with little to her name but debt and disappointment, she at first overlooks the mysterious new patient who arrives at Evergreen Hospice. Mr. Was makes all sorts of fantastic claims, telling her tales of the days he spent traveling the world, or slaying dragons, or falling in love with a prostitute.

Eventually, the stories told by Was draw Wilma in - some seem like fairy tales, others like memories. Soon they become the highlight of her day, the only thing keeping her going as the rest of her life falls apart. But when Wilma is involved in a terrible accident, her own story takes a surprising turn.

Exploring the nature of stories and our very selves, Was will make you question all that is, and think anew about all that will be.

"Was" is the debut novel of Beth Kander, whose previous publications include stage plays and the children's book "Glubbery Gray, the Knight-Eating Beast." The novel was written in less than 30 days, as part of the 2012 NaNoWriMo challenge.
