I’m excited about the release of my book on June 18th, 2016! A Promise to Break: Love, Faith, and Politics in the 1930s, set in Oklahoma, is about a socialist banker’s daughter who falls in love with a Christian hobo!
This book took years of research, analyzing, writing and rewriting. Thanks to everyone who helped. Many of you willingly reviewed, made suggestions, and edited. If not for your encouragement and support, this book would still be covered with dust! The cover includes an actual picture of Sibyl.
Here’s the back cover description of the book.
Sibyl Trimble makes a promise to her father when she is a young girl that she will be part of a socialist political movement to change the world. From a wealthy banking family in Shawnee, Oklahoma, she is comfortable with fashionable clothes, cruising in a new Chrysler, and dancing at the local speakeasy. Even the Depression cannot put a damper on her comfortable lifestyle. By 1932, the timing to fulfill the promise to her father seems right.
Then she meets a handsome, blue-eyed, down-on-his-luck hobo and her life is turned upside down. The more she gets to know him, the more she learns about her world, her purpose, and God. Her love for him opens her eyes to a different way of life than she has ever known.
Based on a true story, this novel follows Sibyl through some difficult choices. She must dig deep within herself to find the strength to face her upbringing and determine which, if any, of her past beliefs can be salvaged. She must decide which is most important, love or duty.
I’m so looking forward to sharing this book with you, and plan to get it out on kindle soon.
You are loved,
