Theresa especially loves to write about human relationships gone terribly awry before being set to rights. Ignorant blunders get her characters into trouble. Tiny, gradual awarenesses, mixed with the occasional epiphany move them out of trouble. A dollop of love always helps, too.

Theresa continues to feel hopeful that loving relationships
