Cardinals, or red birds, are often seen as symbols of strength, feistiness, and faith and are also the state bird of Kentucky. In her debut novel, Karen Evancic weaves this symbolic bird into an endearing and inspiring tale about two women whose roots start out in the rich Kentucky soil but whose life paths quickly take very different turns. Unbeknownst to the other, each woman will find a way to understand what conviction, family, and perseverance are really all about.
It's 1954 and Lillie lay alone on an empty hospital ward in the small farming town of Franklin, Kentucky. Abandoned there by her husband and left to die, she begs for death, welcoming it with every haggard breath. Day after day, when death does not knock, she lay with mountains of regret and without any hope for redemption. But she soon discovers that fate sometimes has other plans. Lillie is befriended by a young nurse named Elizabeth who proves to her that though she may lay dying, she still has importance and purpose. While recounting her life stories to Elizabeth, Lillie is visited by a small red bird, who whispers a sweet song in her ear and reminds her, and in turn Elizabeth, that it's never too late to change the course of your life.
Catherine's journey from a sharecropper's daughter in Kentucky, to a depression era wife in Detroit, to an up and coming entrepreneur in Los Angeles is riddled with adventure, heartache and disappointment. But the feisty Catherine takes each and every heartbreak as a challenge to be conquered and an experience to be relished. Save one. Desperate to become a mother, Catherine's greatest struggle is one over which she has no control and requires something of her that she wrestles to embrace. Faith. As her exciting life unfolds she slowly journeys towards a deep abiding love and an understanding that sometimes life is just as it should be.What these two vastly different women have common will delight you and the way in which their paths eventually cross will fill you with hope, faith, and a deep understanding of what love truly is.
From the Back Cover: It's 1954 and Lillie's hard life has led to this; abandoned to a lonely hospital bed, ripped away from anything that matters to her. As her disease fully embraces her she befriends a young nurse named Elizabeth who helps her find a way to face her awful past and protect those she leaves behind. On the other side of the country, Catherine believes she has broken free of her squalid Kentucky farm roots and moved on to life in a big city. But through all of life's twists and turns, and even as love gives Catherine a second chance, she wonders if she will ever fulfill her deepest longing.
