The Geranium Story: What's it all about, anyway?

So what's this "Geranium Story" all about, anyway?


It's about Lillian Picoletti...

At fifteen, she's become adept at hiding her wretched home-life - at not getting too close to anyone outside her family - at bearing up under the tremendous emotional strain her papa puts on their family. She desperately presses to finish high school and escape the gutter in which she was born.


It's about her mother, Sarah...

Trapped by religious and social constraints in an abusive, loveless marriage, she can't understand why her daughter Lillian won't submit to the lot in which she's placed. Yet Sarah, too, yearns for the peace and rest of which the radio preacher speaks.


It's about their neighbor, Emmeline...

And of how the loss of her own deepest desire opens verdant pathways into the lives of those around her.
Told from multiple perspectives, this 1930s-era coming-of-age novel tells the story of heart-wrenching sorrows alchemized by the Heavenly Father's redeeming grace.


Does it sound interesting? I'm so excited to share it with you - hopefully in mid-November {final release date to be determined}!
