Marcia Preston grew up on a wheat farm in central Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains. From her father, she learned the art of storytelling; from her mother, a reverence for books; and from Oklahoma's red earth, a love of wildlife and the outdoors.
Marcia lives with her husband, Paul, beside a creek in central Oklahoma, where she bird-watches, gardens and dodges tornadoes.

Marcia Preston is the author of the sublime Picoult-esque novel, The Butterfly House, a former lovereading featured debut. I’m thrilled to say she’s back with the sensational West of the Wall. Preston’s latest is set in the fascinating period of 1960s East and West Berlin at the front line of the Cold War. Packed with heartwrenching choices, dramatic escapes and emotional turmoil, this is a novel I urge you to pick up and it’s perfect for readers looking for something deep, compelling and utterly rewarding. If you haven’t tried Marcia Preston yet, this is the one for you. Comparison: Unique but try Bernadine Kennedy, Susan Lewis, Sheila Quigley.
A totally absorbing read. Emotionally charged tale of love and friendship, families, mothers and daughters, and tragedy. If you haven't tried Marcia Preston do.
