Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jacksonville, FL - Jul 02, 2018 - Wendel Lucas Washington, a longtime aspiring writer from Georgetown, South Carolina, now living in Jacksonville, Florida, has completed his new book, “Grace & Dandelions: A Novel”: a tender story of love under duress.
Wendel shares from his book, “I used to pick dandelions for my mother. I was not quite four at the time, and unfortunately, there were plenty to choose from in our large, unkempt yard. Still, she welcomed each weed every time as if it was a long-stemmed rose. We’d blow on it together and watch the seeds dance in the air before they began their slow descent. My job was to dance around and catch as many as I could.
‘There’s one, Gracie!’ she’d clap her hands and encouraged me excitedly. ‘Catch it! Catch it!’ And with each triumphant little grab, we’d shriek with delight and she’d hug me as though I’d just won a gold medal. In a way, I did. Her hugs were like gold medals to me.
I loved my mother, and she loved me. I guess that is to be expected between mother and daughter and need not merit mentioning. But the love that my mother and I shared was no ordinary love. We lived for each other. Our hearts beat and bled for the other. Every breath we took, every thought we had . . . I’ll stop there because it’s impossible to describe, and to say that we lived and would die for each other falls far short of descriptive justice.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Wendel Lucas Washington’s new book is at many points a morality tale and an inspiring encouragement to hold on to a love that never fails.
As Gracie moves away from home for the first time, loses her mother, and meets the father she’d never known, readers will be forced to reckon with the true resilience of love.
Readers can purchase “Grace & Dandelions” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
