This week I’m pleased to welcome novelist Susie Finkbeiner as my guest. Her latest novel is My Mother’s Chamomile. You’ll need a box of tissues to read this touching story. Sample Chapter From My Mother’s Chamomile
Middle Main, Michigan has one stop light, one bakery, one hair salon…and one funeral home. The Eliot Family has assisted the grieving people in their town for over fifty years. After all those years of comforting others, they are the ones in need of mercy.
Olga, the matriarch who fixes everything, is unable to cure what ails her precious daughter. She is forced to face her worst fears. How can she possibly trust God with Gretchen’s life?
A third generation mortician, Evelyn is tired of the isolation that comes with the territory of her unconventional occupation. Just when it seems she’s met a man who understands her, she must deal with her mother’s heartbreaking news. Always able to calm others and say just the right thing, she is now overwhelmed with helplessness as she watches Gretchen slip away.
They are tasting only the drought of tragedy…where is the deluge of comfort God promises?
