The new novel, “a Journey into Womanhood” (published by Trafford Publishing), by Coral S. Jocic, is set in the 1950s and follows one young Australian girl’s eye-opening path to maturity and greater knowledge of self and others.

“A Journey into Womanhood” is a warm, introspective, funny, sad and adventurous tale. Set in Australia, the U.K. and other places in Europe, “a Journey into Womanhood” brings readers along with protagonist Josephine McPhally as she surmounts struggles and obstacles to find herself.

An excerpt from “a Journey into Womanhood”:

“The future was veiled in mystery. She stroked the laughter lines around her eyes, for these were born of joy. She was not too upset either that at 27, age had taken only a small hold on her. Joey liked her self-image in spite of her terrible and horrifying mistakes. The more mature look suited her, and it gave her the courage she would need to face the unknown years ahead.”

“Older women will identify with the era and younger women will learn from it,” Jocic says. “Life’s path is not always smooth, but it can be warm, funny and adventurous.”
