A Fond Farewell


She was reading a book.

That is all she seemed to do lately- an avid reader.

Her husband loved that about her – until the obsession. It started with a book site, then a book blog. She lived and breathed reading. She would have eaten it if she could.

She read day and night not cooking or cleaning. Her husband, he warned her a few times that he was near breaking point.

She kept reading.

One day he said he was going for milk. She kept reading.

She has been for the five years he has been gone.


Mollydee-150x150Melissa Grabowski, or “Mollydee” as her friends call her, is a Registered Nurse who had to stop working due to medical reasons. She was not able to read for fourteen years because of her medications, which made her lose focus and concentration. Last June, she was blessed with getting better, and was able to read once again. This led to blogging and meeting many wonderful authors (such as Jennifer Niven!). When she is not reading or blogging, Mollydee is working on her own book. She has been a Steelers fan since the age of eight, loves the winter, keeps a garden in the summer, and loves crafts. She has been married for thirteen years to the best man in the world and hopes to return to Nursing one day.
