The Recorder of Deeds is the intimate memoir of a former award-winning journalist who navigates by dead reckoning a decade that wrenched her family apart in bitter disagreement, threatened every single thing she held dear, and ultimately strengthened the tensile bonds of love.
Between 1999 and 2009, both of her parents died, one of her brothers lost his fortune, another brother spent his inheritance, Catherine lost her job, and her sister lost her fragile mind. She went to Death Row, twice. She covered the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, filing dispatches from the chaotic streets near Ground Zero. The trauma of those years continues to manifest itself.
Unfolding in my lush narrative and in the flash and flare of real-time emails, The Recorder of Deeds will touch the hearts of readers who will see in Catherine’s courageous journey elements of their own personal and professional odysseys.
