Oftentimes, life’s most challenging moments spark a new beginning. Whether blindsided by a cheating spouse or devastated by the death of a loved one, learning to start anew is a skill many admire but few come to master. In order to truly define a person’s character, one must face adversity while traveling down unfamiliar and sometimes rocky roads.
This month’s Jen’s Jewels Sarah Jio addresses this very topic in her debut novel THE VIOLETS OF MARCH. It’s the story of a newly divorced woman Emily Wilson who is suffering from the fall-out inflicted by her cheating ex-husband. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks refuge with a relative on serene Bainbridge Island. One of my Top 5 Picks for the summer, this talented novelist is sure to be one of fiction’s next rising stars.
