Harrison Township, Mich. (PRWEB) February 10, 2012
Beyond the riverfront of Detroit is the center of its blind pigs and brothel houses wherein the cultural community of its little Greektown unfolds the story of a spirited soulful young woman. In author Sandra L. Murray’s Magdalene, readers will follow her as she runs from the heart of darkness, onward through a hungering need for love and acceptance, onward into a world of misguided misfits where a script of unwritten laws had become a nightmarish dream, where times were hard and talk was cheap and money had a language all of its own. .
Within the inner circle of Detroit’s cultural neighborhood of Greektown lies the framing analogy of the plight of society’s child. In this book, readers will meet Lydia O’Shanick, a poor little rich girl wounded deep from childhood. Who she exactly is, is her transformation as she moves on. She evolves through a twist of fate, a flash of a moment that swept her forward through the altar of destiny, thrusting her into a life that moved beyond the commonplace, beyond the idiosyncrasies and the ethical values of her generation’s modeled normalities of society and religion. And what of its title, Magdalene? Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. It too becomes an analogy that is mirrored in the ending.
Skillfully written, packed with insight and important life lessons, Magdalene is a revealing read that brings hope, comfort and awareness as it relates the truth about life through the journey of the main character. It is a captivating read that will surely touch everyone’s heart.
This book will be featured at this year’s Michigan Reading Association Book Exhibit in Grand Rapids , MI, on March 9-11, 2012.
