Don't you like to read about interesting life journeys? I sure do! So how about one from innocent to outcast, wartime Glasgow to Canada’s 1970s counterculture? Grace’s diary lives long after she is gone, and provides a roadmap to redemption for more than one troubled woman.
And this new book, 'My Name is Grace' by Lorraine Oman Hanover has just joined the "100 Trees Project"!
This joint program was launched by Infinity Publishing, a leading self-publishing company together with Eco-Libris to promote environmental sustainability among its authors. Through the program, authors that publish with Infinity are able to plant 100 trees for the title they publish. These authors also have the option to add a special "100 trees planted for this book" logo to their book's design, as a way to showcase their commitment to environmental sustainability.
What's this book is about?
“Some people call me amazing Grace, and some people call me a dis-Grace.” When she slurs those words in a northern Alberta bar, Grace is worlds away from the girl who began a diary on the eve of World War II. Against the backdrop of a Scottish tenement community, her writings portray a journey from innocent to outcast — from devotion to family, to burning every bridge for a dissolute pilot. In 1971, runaway Jude Klein finds Grace’s diary. Unloved and debilitated by drugs, Jude will discover through Grace’s story a roadmap to her own redemption.
About the author: A native of Scotland, Lorraine Oman Hanover emigrated first to Canada, then to the United States. Scotland would have receded into the mists of childhood memory, she says, if not for her mother’s tales of wartime Glasgow. In My Name is Grace, Lorraine set out to capture such a voice and explore how it could steady the spirit of a questing, troubled soul.
My Name is Grace is available for sale on Infinity's website.
