Built on sis­ter­hood, a quin­tet of real-life writ­ers, who affec­tion­ate­ly call them­selves, ​“The Inkslingers,” penned a nov­el, about fic­tion­al women. The diverse char­ac­ters trav­el to Upstate New York for a writ­ing work­shop and expe­ri­ence a life-chang­ing detour. Often humor­ous, at times haunt­ing, this cap­ti­vat­ing lit­er­ary work is tes­ti­mo­ny to the pow­er of the writ­ten word. This work has the essence of mag­i­cal real­ism but is ground­ed in wom­en’s rela­tion­ships with each oth­er and those they love. Detours demon­strates how women of vary­ing ages, reli­gious back­grounds, and fam­i­ly dynam­ics nav­i­gate life’s chal­lenges while sup­port­ing one anoth­er. With their dis­tinc­tive per­son­al­i­ties, each char­ac­ter expe­ri­ences their own detour. No amount of fore­shad­ow­ing could have paint­ed the twists and turns of their fic­tion­al jour­ney. This unique nov­el is a tes­ta­ment to the per­se­ver­ance, sis­ter­hood, and col­lab­o­ra­tion of five actu­al women authors who have bond­ed and birthed this endeav­or, Detours.
