ABOUT THE BOOK
Author: Beth Troy
Publisher: Kingsbury Publishing
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Are we the sum of our circumstances or is there … more?
In a debut novel readers are calling “true to life,” “captivating,” and “cleverly written,” author Beth Troy takes on the story of Lu Sokolowski and her life upended. Lu’s plans have turned sideways, taking her back to the family and town she always planned to leave.
Lu is a modern woman’s honest journey to faith, that unapologetically addresses:
•The big questions women ask about their beliefs.
•The struggles women face in creating a fulfilling life.
•The complexity of family relationships.
•The tension between hope and reality.
Lu is a story for readers looking for real growth in relatable characters who aren’t afraid to ask real questions. It’s for women who want to experience the full spectrum of who they are and what they believe. It’s for women who want a story about how faith integrates into the whole life of a woman. You will want to share this story with a friend – after you read it again yourself.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Beth Troy is a writer and educator who teaches courses in Creativity & Innovation and Women & Entrepreneurship at Miami University. Her first novel, Lu, is a modern woman’s journey back to her family, her faith, and herself. Beth will be publishing the sequel in Summer 2020.
Beth lives in Ohio with her husband and three sons. Go to her site or follow her on Instagram to read more about her life and writing.
Lu is the story of a woman’s journey to faith that begins in betrayal and heartbreak, and leads to even more brokenness before it is through. For Christian and non-Christian alike, this is a story that will resonate as Lu returns to her family home, begins to heal, and considers new possibilities.
Told in Lu’s voice, this is an impressive debut novel that evokes a gamut of emotions. From her family relationships – her Polish grandmother in particular – to her romantic choices, Lu is a complex and engaging character – even with her habit of running away from problems.
This novel is unexpected and revelatory, an example of what Christian fiction can be and do. Highly and warmly recommended, this is a book to share with friends.
Note: Lu includes a few curse words and implied intimacy, but is definitely Christian fiction.
