ABOUT THE STORYJune MacDonald's fate is sealed the day she is born when her mother defies her husband by not naming their new daughter after a Catholic saint, as is their tradition. No one can foresee that June will grow up to threaten the family by revealing her mother's secret past in the Scottish Highlands. After a tragedy the Scottish MacDonalds emigrate to San Francisco in hopes for a new start. There, young June begins to have visions that haunt her mother. Her rigid and abusive father will not tolerate them. That doesn't stop the feisty girl. Her three sisters try to protect their little sister from their father's wrath with often hilarious tactics. The family is on the brink of imploding when June and her sisters come of age in the 1960's Haight Ashbury scene. Their father's declaration seems to be coming true: "Doomed to hell, every last one of you." In order to save June her mother must stand up to her husband. This poignant mother daughter story is about of how family changes over time and addresses the issues immigrants face in their new country. It's a story of acceptance and reconciliation and the world of mysticism. A book for the young and older readers.

HOW THE STORY CAME TO BE: My mother's love of books and her great imagination for storytelling inspired me to write "The Skye in June." It's a tribute to my mother and five zany sisters. In it I share some of our history as Scottish immigrants and coming of age during the 1960's in San Francisco. It began as a screenplay because that's how it unfolded for me as I saw characters, felt moods and heard their conversations. Especially enjoyable was the sisters' discussions, which at times was rather hilarious. Before putting it on paper, I'd speak aloud each one's words. My husband finally stopped asking if I was talking to him or "the MacDonalds" (or whomever was being created). 
      
Because my protagonist and I share the same first name I've been asked if it's an autobiography. Some situations and events did occur but the majority of the story is my imagination hence a rather thinly veiled autobiography set in a fictional framework. Why did I call my protagonist June? Fact: Against my father's wishes my mother named me June, a name my father declared was a "heathen name" and not a saint's. I don't believe I'll be the first Saint June.
