“All the world’s a stage,” said William Shakespeare, and the stage set for There’s an Egg Yolk in the Sky echoes The Bard’s famous monologue through a sweeping, multigenerational saga of Tabitha Cathleen MacGillivray. Although Tabitha’s world is a Twentieth Century one, the challenges faced by this beautiful and vigorous woman—indeed all women of her time—are reminiscent of those depicted in Shakespeare’s The Seven Ages of Man.

Born at the height of the Great Depression, Tabitha is only two years old when she meets eighteen-year-old Ross Duval, the man who will eventually become her lifelong love. The story of her unusual, frustrating, illicit affair with Ross anchors a poignant family drama in which Tabitha’s life is punctuated by both tragedy and success. Interwoven throughout the narrative are authentic bits of history that act as touchstones for the reader, bringing each era into stark focus.

Vividly portrayed by a cast of expertly drawn three-dimensional characters, Tabitha’s life story leaves the reader with a feeling of having lived each moment by her side.
