My new book The Seed was just published in June 2013, and I am looking forward to my readers' response. The Seed is going to be very different from all my other, earlier books; that much I can tell you. Interested? Take a sneak preview now.
Take one small boy abandoned by parents too young to cope. Add one grandmother with an abundance of devotion and a heart broken by her children's rejection. Gently blend their lives while adding the joys and sorrows life brings. It's the recipe for a story that is sweetly blended with love.
Liz realized that raising Mark was her chance to give the love her own children had refused. He needed her; and she needed him to accept her values, love, and deep seeded morals. George had been placed in an orphanage during the depression years when his parent s could not afford his care, and was a place he vowed never to see any of his kin raised.
As the months and years went by, each year Mark grew older, Liz and George knew at any time Albert and Nicole would return home and reclaim him as their son. The seed of doubt was planted in their minds, but keeping Mark busy with school and sports, helped keep it dormant in hopes it would never bloom. It would be the seed planted deep in their grandson’s soul, they could only hope the winter freeze would not kill, or the weeds in the spring kept from blooming full, a seed Liz had seen fail raising her own three children, and could not accept another bloomless spring.
With over 40 million grandparents worldwide playing their part every year to keep their kin out of foster care and orphanages, the author new the time had come these heroes were paid homage for their selfless love, writing the first book ever written to bring this unique love story to light for the world to witness.
