Available now at Bookshop.org, Amazon.com, and Barnesandnoble.com
We are absolutely thrilled to bring this latest release to you! Originally written by author Cynthia Birk for a Young Authors Conference when she was just 7 years old, this book is what sparked her desire to become an author. Having it published is literally a child's dream come true! The text has been minimally edited and is accompanied by cute colorful illustrations inspired by the original crayon sketches. Adorable!
With a fast-track career and busy social schedule, 23-year-old Emma has everything her heart desires until fate pulls the rug out from under her carefully constructed life. After an unexpected visitor shakes up her dismal new normal, she travels to Mackinac Island to take on a series of challenges designed to break her out of her comfort zone. Amid the horse drawn carriages, bicycles, and fudge shops of the historic summer resort destination, she confronts old habits, rethinks relationships, and repeatedly crosses paths with an intriguing stranger while she searches for the happiness that seems just out of reach. Does Emma have what it takes to find the “lilacs” that will make her life beautiful again?
