I am delighted to be giving away a copy of Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives by the Women of Redbud Writers Guild.

By way of a preview, a few paragraphs from two of the stories.

“I know the stories. Of mothers in Syria being forced to choose which child to take as they flee. Of women and girls sold and trafficked. Of friends around the globe and in my city who battle chronic and undiagnosed illness; of friends who, because of the color of their skin or the socio-economic bracket they’ve been born into, cry out “help” much more often and healthily. But me? I’m a suburban mom with a new bleeding problem. I know only a smidgen of suffering.

Yet, I am learning my body has deep lessons to teach me. That this triad of mind, body, and soul is a pretty construct that doesn’t hold up. My body exposes where I’ve chosen to dig down my roots. Often, it turns out, they’re in rocky soil.”

“I didn’t want to be the girl whose house always had a rice pot plugged in on the counter, whose pantry was filled with seaweed and saimin noodles and Spam, whose fridge smelled of kimchee when you opened it. My taste buds never understood why the tiny stacks in the Lunchables box were anything to be desired, beyond being a way for me to line up on the shelf right next to my peers. I wanted to fit in, to belong, to be seen.”

  1. My roots are deep and my trunk is strong. I am not sure that my branches are always reaching far enough or in the right direction, and I know I’ve not blossomed in a long time, so I think ‘branches’ and ‘blossoms’ are the parts I am needing right now. It certainly cannot hurt!
