"...like a slow dance to a Patsy Cline song in the arms of your one true love."
Teresa Medeiros


The 50's... Drive-in Movies, Doo-wop Music... and Love in the Back Seat of a '51 Plymouth

AWARDED HONORABLE MENTION for GENRE FICTION in WRITER'S DIGEST SELF-PUBLISHED AWARDS 2013

"LILY OF THE SPRINGS is like a slow dance to a Patsy Cline song in the arms of your one true love. From the very first page, it draws you back to another time and place and makes you want to stay there forever. Carole Bellacera is a master storyteller."...Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author of GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART

In 1952 Kentucky, 18-year-old Lily Foster, the daughter of strict Southern Baptist parents, becomes pregnant by the town "bad boy" - and just like that, she finds herself married to a man who doesn't want to be a husband. Jake has no intention of letting the inconvenience of marriage stop him from what he believes is his due. In actuality, Lily is the one who is trapped. She loves Jake - always has, since they were children playing in the woods on adjoining properties--and she's convinced she can eventually make him love her. All it will take is desire and patience. Once the baby arrives, they will be the perfect little family.
From Lily's home on Opal Springs Ridge to a four-year stint at an army base in New Boston, Texas, and finally, to life on their own in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Lily struggles to maintain a rocky marriage with a moody, immature husband while raising two daughters. Set during the "American Dream" period of the '50s and into the turbulent '60's, LILY OF THE SPRINGS is a story of a woman's indomitable spirit and her fight for independence and identity in an "Ozzie & Harriet" society.
