"Babette: The Many Lives, Two Deaths and Double Kidnapping of Dr. Ellsworth" is the story of Ross Eliot's early years in Portland, when he stumbled upon an unusual living situation with an eccentric history professor. In exchange for living quarters in her pantry, Eliot served as companion, chauffeur, confidant and sometimes medic for the flamboyant and worldly septuagenarian. His account of these years pulls the reader through religious, cultural and historical tales laced with intrigue, felony, incest and mystery.

* more than 150$ is a direct donation from a supporter of the Rainbow Awards who isn't submitting; while some authors were more than generous, arriving to donate 5 times the suggested amount, being the submission fee a non mandatory and voluntary direct donation, we were struggling to raise the same amount as last year and there is who decided to cover part of it. I thank you for all you are doing, and if you wish to donate to the above links, please drop me a note with your donation and I will update the total.
