“IVORY AND INK”: a delightful young adult fiction with affable characters and unexpected twists of fate. “IVORY AND INK” is the creation of published author Stacy Graven, a graduate of Weber State University with a BA in English, Creative Writing Emphasis, and a minor in anthropology.

Graven shares, “It’s 1964.

“Evie Jernig, a Welsh botanist with stationery and a heart broken by royalty at a fountain.

“Max Dash McGuire, a sleep-deprived medical student at Oxford with a God-given intellect who finds joy in lemon drops and an inkwell despite circumstance.

“As happenstance would have it, a colleague of Evie’s, Dr. Feldane, encourages Evie to attend Oxford for a doctorate that could heal her heart with knowledge overflowing. Yet she is left with a late ferry, wrong room number, a garden, lots of walnuts, telephone booths, and a twelve-year-old postal carrier in an England fruit market with more wisdom than she imagined.

“‘One of those yet to be found,’ he says, as he walks away into the crowd.

“Will Evie find what she is looking for? Will Max?

“Through journal entries, a diner, letters, forty-one months, class, a housekeeper with no last name, an artistic grandmother, an uncle who survived polio, and students with an aptitude for studying and laughter, will they come together as they look to God for help? Or will they be torn apart under pressure?

“Dreams, faith, friendships, records, and a garden may be just what the doctor ordered.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Stacy Graven’s new book will delight and entertain as readers race to see what awaits Evie and Max.

Graven spins a fun and inspired narrative that will captivate the imagination as a unique friendship unfolds.
