The fictional book is based on a moment in Bonnie’s childhood on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Bonnie emphasizes the value of family in whatever form that takes, and the journey a family takes over a lifetime.
Bonnie’s work became especially relevant today with “so many grandparents raising their grandchildren”.
Her book is told from a child’s perspective, and is intertwined with nostalgic adult recollections, of her early years growing up on the rural Delmarva Peninsula in the 1960’s. The story explores unlikely friendships, tragedy, healing and God.
Bonnie says the novel is for people…”who have ever wondered where God is in the midst of heartbreak and those of us who have found Him there”.
