Xlibris, the world’s leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of A Healing Place, a new book authored by Joyce Shaughnessy.
Set in the 1930s and 1940s, A Healing Place tells an enduring story of love, sacrifice, and courage through the fictional exploits of a family – the Millers. Amos, Molly, and their three daughters live through the trials and hardships of the Dust Bowl of the Great Depression and World War II. They manage to find a place where, through their love for each other, and their faith in the power of prayer, they overcome any challenge and strive to be a stronger family. During World War II, the Millers deal with the horrible sacrifices and inspiring courage of the men and women in uniform when their son-in-law, Jed, is caught in the brutal Bataan Death March in the Philippines. How they strive to survive and keep moving forward will engage readers until the very end.
A Healing Place emphasizes the need to find strength within to survive any terrible tragedy that anyone can encounter. It also symbolizes the fact that freedom always comes at a cost and that every citizen must sacrifice something to live on and be free.
