Mayzie Jenkins is a na ve college student who lands a summer job at Liberty Loomis, a rural hospital in the Catskill mountains. She plans a career in medicine and this eight-week experience should boost her medical school application though it promises to be pretty dull. However, the complex relationships she encounters form surprising connections to her recent and remote life experiences. And the thread of a dark yet forgotten childhood memory winds through each chapter until its powerful impact is finally revealed. The story of "Liberty Loomis" happens in 1970, but the themes it portrays and the lessons it teaches are timeless.

Praise for Liberty Loomis:

"This is Denman's debut novel. Her writing is wonderful and true-to-life, and her characters are memorable beyond the end of the book. Mayzie's family could be anyone's family; they live; they love; they share moments--not realizing their poignancy until much later." Clarion Review

"The author's prose is lively and Mayzie's transformation in the end feels authentic. Ultimately Denman manages to successfully weave the conflicts of American society during the 1970's, when far reaching divisive issues such as the Vietnam war, abortion and racism challenge small town insularity and narrow-mindedness."
