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.

He walked toward me until he was a breath away.

“Are you sure?” he asked.

Sure? Sure of what? And when? When had I ever been sure? And if I had, when had it ever worked out? These were strange questions of relativity to be clanging around my mind, but John’s question forced them to the forefront. I’d made a whole life of trying and failing, starting and quitting. Leaving. Even now, when everything was going well, when a man who loved me was asking me to be with him, I was about to start the cycle all over again. I wasn’t sure of anything.
