Barbara J. Taylor was born and raised in Scranton, PA, and teaches English in the Pocono Mountain School District. She has a master’s degree in creative writing from Wilkes University. Her debut novel, Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night was a Publisher Weekly Best Summer Book of 2014. Her latest, All Waiting Is Long (Kaylie Jones Books) picks up the story of the Morgan sisters, sixteen years later. Lily and Violet are back home in Scranton, one married, one about to be, each finding her own way in a place where a woman’s worth is tied to her virtue. Against the backdrop of the sweeping eugenics movement and rogue coal mine strikes, the Morgan sisters must choose between duty and desire. Either way, they risk losing their marriages and each other.
