Former Alexandria resident Pamela Collins-Fisk, wife of Zebra columnist Marcus Fisk, has published her first novel, The Innkeeper’s Diary, and it is one of those books you will not want to put down. Based on Collins’ real life, it is the story of a single mother struggling to save an inn that she opened on a whim after being besieged by a string of life’s worst tragedies, including domestic violence.
You will joyfully journey with Collins through her unusual struggles, triumphs and finding love and renewed hope. Many people who have watched Collins’life unfold remark, “You can’t make this stuff up.”
Her raw determination becomes an education on living: If you learn to release whatever you have and simply be thankful for all that remains, the beauty of life finds you. Collins’ strong narrative is immediately engaging, drawing you into her soul.
