***

Meet two women in different eras but both with unfailing conviction in Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould’s new book, My Daughter’s Legacy. Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? Nicole Talbot’s life is back on track after years of substance abuse. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family’s legacy, she must risk all that she’s gained—her fresh start, her family’s trust, and her growing relationship with a new man—to unlock the secrets of the past.

Story Spotlight on ‘Through the Shadows’

May 25th, 2016

As San Francisco rises from the ashes, an age-old battle looms between corruption and the promise of new beginnings. The devastating earthquake is just two years past, but the city of San Francisco is still trying to recover. Destruction of this magnitude is not so easy to overcome-and neither are the past regrets shadowing Elizabeth King’s hopeful future. Hoping to right her wrongs, Elizabeth dedicates herself to helping girls rescued from slavery in Chinatown brothels, even if it means putting her own life at risk to sneak through the gloomy alleys and rooftops where dangers lurk.

Character Interview with Lucy Tuttle

What is the most interesting thing about you?

I learned a new skill—a new-to-me form of art expression—late in life. But I can’t tell you what it is because my author would not be happy I revealed that tidbit of information. When you read the book Song of Silence, and you get to that part, you’ll see what I mean.

Occupation:

I raised two beautiful children and then was privileged to take over my father’s highly-respected music program at our community’s school. What could be better? I stepped into my second dream career after my first dream career as a mom.

What three words would you use to describe yourself?

Dedicated. Passionate. Compassionate…. read more »
