The Resurrection of Alice

In rural South Carolina, 1948, fifteen-year-old Alice looks forward to graduating from high school (a family first) and attending college on the scholarship she has earned. But her plans are devastated when she learns that she must honor her parent's secret marriage arrangements for her to Luthern Tucker the lonely, old family benefactor who had been eyeing her since she was seven-years-old. Alice's next twenty years of overcoming trials are a tribute to the power of nurturing and healing that can cause a broken spirit to be reborn.

Because the tradition of arranged nuptials continues, The Resurrection of Alice has a contemporary, universal social appeal to anyone seeking to understand how and why this tradition remains as well as some possible emotional, psychological and physical tolls that may plague both the betrothed and their families, if the union is not a happy one.

The Resurrection of Alice is perfect for ages 12 and up. It's an adventure that informs, enlightens, excites and inspires through characters that will stay with you long after the story ends.
