A Sundog Moment
A Novel of HopeLarge Print - 2006
Michael and Elizabeth Whittaker seem to be the perfect couple. Then Elizabeth is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and their world falls apart. In this poignant novel of faith and change, the ripple of Elizabeth's diagnosis affects her relationships with the well-meaning people who love her: Virginia Mae, her domineering mother whose "emotional illogic was legend"; her overprotective husband; and her best friend Carol. Elizabeth finds hope and friendship in the Northern Neck Neuromuscular Support Group, but when the members dabble in marijuana as a possible aid to healing, disaster is just around the corner. Throughout her troubles, Elizabeth finds solace in looking for a "sundog" moment-a reference to a rainbowlike weather phenomenon in the sky that heralds change. Sundogs become symbolic for Elizabeth of her own transitions and the need for clarity in her faith.
