‘She’s Taking A Break’ By Joyce Gerber

I wrote my 80,000-word manuscript, SHE’S TAKING A BREAK, in hopes of being part of a long tradition of romantic literature. For the past few years I’ve been referring to my novel as a Cannabis Romance, and have written it because I know there’s a market for it.

When Annie McGrath returns to her home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, after being on the road with her husband’s band for twenty years, she moves back into her childhood bedroom to figure out how things in her life went so terribly wrong. Dottie McGrath welcomes Annie home and is happy to have someone else in the house besides her ailing husband. And when Annie seeks a compassionate listener in Father Lorenzo – her next-door neighbor and childhood best friend – in the confessional, the threads of Annie’s life begins to unfurl.

Annie is a habitual cannabis consumer and throughout the story cannabis is normalized and accepted along with the unfolding story of Annie’s secrets in order to upend the stigmas that have been created around cannabis use.
