The Secret of Misty Mountain, a Story of Acceptance and Forgiveness, Hits Shelves March 24th.

"This powerful coming of age story has it all, life lessons can be learned about kindness to all, strength and family values." Highly recommended! – The Columbia Review

L. Michelle Bowen has always been a storyteller, creating characters and situations and sharing them with children. One particular story seemed to take on a life of its own. Out of this tale came The Secret of Misty Mountain, to be released March 24, 2020 through Purple Finch Press.

When Anne, a young country girl who lives in the beautiful countryside of South Carolina meets Catherine, a pretty and wealthy new girl in town, they become unlikely friends. Everything seems perfect until Catherine confides in Anne a secret too big to keep. When schoolmates learn of her secret, it threatens to tear apart not only her friendship but Catherine's family as well.

“While we are living in a monumental age where children are finally beginning to understand the value of true acceptance, my story is set in a time where that understanding rarely existed. My hope is that the child reading Misty Mountain would learn to love without condition, to befriend without prejudice, to accept without discrimination, to be courageous and to stand up against hate,” Bowen states.

"This powerful coming of age story has it all, at a time when segregation was the norm, Anne and Catherine defy the world, and in their powerful story, life lessons can be learned about kindness to all, strength and family values." Highly recommended!
– The Columbia Review
