About The Event
From the author:
My fourth novel, The Swan House, (Bethany House, 2001), takes place in my native Atlanta. As with my other novels, I combine recent history with fiction to create the compelling story of sixteen-year-old Mary Swan Middleton and her search for truth. I love Atlanta. My inspiration for this novel came from my upbringing in an affluent neighborhood and the struggles I had as I tried to understand my faith in Christ within the context of wealth. I spent my life watching my mother prepare meals for the poor of Atlanta, working alongside a home missionary from the Southern Baptist church. The stories I heard of God’s miracles in this place were used of the Lord to move me toward missions. The Swan House starts out with a schoolgirl’s dare and eventually brings the black and white worlds of Atlanta together. In this book, I hope to challenge the reader to examine her prejudices and find out where she goes to find truth.
