My New Novel!
I couldn’t think of a better day to introduce my new novel, Weeping May Endure for a Night, than today, Holy Saturday.
It’s one of my favorite days! The space in between loss and the hope of “joy coming in the morning!” (Psalm 30:5). Between Good Friday and Easter morning. Our lives are filled with such moments, where our weeping may only endure for a night and joy is promised in the morning! And more specifically in the lives of the fabulous main characters in my novel, Ava and Almah, two women on their own journeys towards the promise of joy in the new mornings of their lives.
This is my debut novel and is inspired by mother’s remarkable ability to tell stories and her and my profound love for the place where she grew up: St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. I was encouraged to write this by the words of Toni Morrison who said Write the story you want to read. This is clearly a story I wanted to read about the power in telling our stories… all part of our stories, and the forgiveness, freedom, love, healing and joy, if and when we choose to tell them!
Please read and I look forward to hearing your thoughts about it!
