Doris Newman recognizes that people have a deep discontentment in the world. In her published book “A Dove in the Distant Oaks” (published by WestBow Press), people may know that contentment is possible despite the ups and downs of life.

Set in a farm in South Dakota, the book follows Dianna, a little girl who becomes an adult. She spends her life looking for contentment. She looks to her father as an example. She looks to the circumstances of life. Ultimately she finds contentment inside of herself.

“Society is in a mad rush to get somewhere, only most don't know where that is. The book can be a signpost in that journey,” Newman says. “Every person is searching for contentment in some way or another. It is our hope ‘A Dove in the Distant Oaks’ will point them in the right direction in an entertaining way.”

An excerpt from the book reads:
The bus driver turned down the volume of the classic radio station and drove back to Dianna’s farm and up to the house. Tears streamed down Dianna’s face. Her mother came out of the house and Frank, the bus driver told her about the burn, while Dianna was placed into the backseat of her parents’ car.
