New biographical fiction novel released this week: Secrets of the Speckled Oak
Waynesboro, MS –Author Dawn Alexander announces the release of Secrets of the Speckled Oak: The Story of a Mother’s Love and Perseverance
Laura Fields is the loving mother of two sons, Alex and Max, one of which has a handicapping condition. Laura relives the extraordinarily happy times in her life such as falling in love, marriage, and the births of her two sons and she also reminisces on the devastatingly heartbreaking family secrets she has so desperately aimed to protect her young sons from becoming aware of.
Laura realizes that she must find a way to explain the hardships of her life to her sons and chooses to write her son Max a letter. Within this heart-centered letter, Laura encloses a special “treasure” for her sons. Max must read further into the letter to understand the “true meaning” of the so-called “treasure.”
Laura strives to answer many questions Max has asked over his childhood years and through Laura’s explanation of life’s ups and downs to her son, she aims to instill the realization that even though life may not turn out exactly how one planned, that does not mean that it may not turn out even better.
With God’s amazing grace along with the love of a cowboy by the name of Ryder, all of Laura’s prayers and wishes come true for herself, but even more importantly for her two hearts, Alex and Max.
