As adults, we often feel pulled in two directions when it comes to family. Whether it’s trying to decide with whom we celebrate a certain holiday or include on a family vacation, the choice is never easy. Regardless of the decision, we just can’t be in two places at the same time. Imagine what it must be like for those with family members living in foreign countries. Quite the logistical challenge, to say the least.
This month’s Jen’s Jewels Henriette Lazaridis Power addresses this very topic in her debut novel, The Clover House. It’s the story of Callie, a thirty-five-year-old woman with American-Greek roots, who must come to terms with her family’s past while discovering the truth about her own heritage. Beautifully written with the stunning backdrop of Greece, it’s a poignant story that touches upon the power of forgiveness.
