Have you ever thought that you’d like to learn to read tea leaves like I do?
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) October 8, 2010
Author Patricia Gruenwald reveals how one woman’s extraordinary life unfolds as she pens a stirring fiction, It’s in the Leaves, made available through Xlibris.
“Have you ever thought that you’d like to learn to read tea leaves like I do?” Stella asked her young daughter—the focus and fierce heart of the story—Tessa. While Tessa was young, her mother taught her to read tea leaves and to use her intuition.
This stirring fiction follows a woman’s life through her childhood, her teaching, her marriage, her two children, and her divorce – using tea leaves to help her make decisions. Throughout the pages, readers will witness her encounters as she brings her children up alone until they become teens. Then, she meets an oil man whom she follows to different parts of the world. Readers will revel in wonder as Tessa describes the different places she has been and the people she has met.
Insightful, compelling, and entertaining, It’s in the Leaves is ultimately a tale of intuition, of family, of self-discovery, of an adventure that spans different horizons, and of the pursuit of love. This book will also be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in Sacramento, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
