UNEXPECTED GIFTS is her latest release. Due out in November. It’s about a heroine named Eli (short for Elinore) Cartwright. She runs a teen parenting program for her school district. Eli has always been a fantastic role model and mentor to the girls in her program. And when she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, she finds her future has changed as drastically as the girls' in her program...but sometimes unexpected changes are gifts!
Holly said, “The idea of doing a book that features a teen parenting program fascinated me. I've volunteered for our local program for more than a decade, and have always been awed by the amount of people they've helped. Girls who've not only managed to graduate because of the program, but who have gone on to higher education because of it. Girls who have learned how to not let one mistake define them. And most importantly, girls who have learned to be great parents, when they themselves have barely left childhood behind.”
I think this is a book a lot of mother’s would be interested in, specially one’s with teen daughters. It a story that shows a courage and strength most of us women need to draw on at sometime in our lives. It’s a story of discovering our personal power as women. It’s a book that can give us all a little insight as it entertains us.
