Woodhall Press releases dark, immersive novel aimed at bringing about positive change

Norwalk, Connecticut Oct 1, 2022 (Issuewire.com) - Wally Lamb calls it  "...a film noir between covers... dark, tense, and sexy." 

Woodhall Press is proud to announce the release of The Language of Bodies (978-1-954907-46-1, October 4, 2022, Paperback) by Suzanne DeWitt Hall.

In this era of social turmoil, novels have the power to inform as they entertain, breaking down barriers to compassion and communication. The Language of Bodies is a page-turner that does just that. The love story at the center of the tale moves readers and helps them realize the essential humanity of transgender people, and the very real danger prejudice presents. The Language of Bodies is one example of Woodhall Presss efforts to support positive social change, through literature.

The novel is a great read for October, featuring a vintage wax museum, a haunted hotel, and a mystical shrine, all as the setting for the main character's journey for revenge after the murder of her wife, a transgender woman of color.


Maddie Wells life spirals out of control after the murder of her wife Char, a transgender woman of color. Hunger for vengeance drives Maddie to take a job at a wax museum near the murderer's hometown, where she studies revenge and plots how to strike back. Befriending the murderers wife is the first stage in Maddies plan to make him pay.
The Language of Bodies probes the seduction of vengeance using vivid, sensual imagery to explore how love transcends the particulars of body parts, and how revenge blurs the line between victim and perpetrator, hero and villain. Its a gorgeous, dark tale about the enduring power of love, and the human spirits unwillingness to give up.
