Pain and humor combine in faith-filled story from author E.J. Gordon.

With the authentic voice of this memoir, readers will sense that we've lived portions of the same story.

In the candid and highly personal new memoir, “Sunrise in a Lemon Sky” (published by CrossBooks), author E.J. Gordon shares her faith-filled journey to encourage other women experiencing difficult circumstances.

“When circumstances blindside and seem beyond your control, you’ll need help,” Gordon says. “With the authentic voice of this memoir, readers will sense that we’ve lived portions of the same story.”

Cancer, infertility, divorce, dating after 50, falling down and getting up—Gordon shares earth-shattering events from her own life, realistic encouragement and a plethora of examples of how an attitude of action and love helped her to persevere over her crises.

Tempered with humor, “Sunrise in a Lemon Sky” offers practical support devoid of clichéd platitudes. The memoir is divided into chapters, each containing quotations and Scriptures with questions for personal reflection. Additionally, each chapter holds a page called “food for thought” which includes a recipe from Gordon’s family archives.
