Perfect for performance or scenework, this collection offers an intimate portrayal of motherhood from three poignant places; A mother struggling with the loss of her daughter, A step-mom struggling for her position in her new family, and a woman struggling to accept a motherless life.  Blood on the Highway is set on a lonely stretch of highway where a mother scrubs the blood stain off the road where her daughter was killed by a drunk driver.  Motherhood Unbidden brings two woman together, both facing the uncertainty of motherhood.  The Stranger on the Porch is a testament to the fact that you can sell someone anything if you dress it up to look like something they want.
