When the ladies' group at her church partners with the local children's home, Colleen jumps in as usual, volunteering to share her passion for cooking with a troubled teenager named Grace. But Colleen must balance the new project with her pursuit of becoming a contestant on a television game show, along with all the other ideas her brain continually spins out.
Colleen's daughter Melody is quite different. She lives a calm, simple life and is content with who she is. That is, until an unexpected opportunity to work with Grace, too, pushes her to reevaluate life and dare to take on bigger dreams. The path starts with a newly-found interest in soap-making and leads her to responsibilities she didn't even know she wanted, including helping Grace understand the meaning of her name.
I didn't set out to write a novel. I was sitting on the beach in July of 2017, with my toes in the sand, when a character introduced herself in my brain. Literally, while watching the waves, this wandering, restless, longing woman, who would eventually be named Colleen, was born as a book character, and God allowed me to use her story as a platform for foster care and adoption advocacy- a cause near and dear to my heart. "Grace and Lavender" will be released by Ambassador International on March 1, 2019. It's an inspirational story about purpose and possibilities! - Heather Norman Smith
