Author Visit: Hard Cider by Barbara Stark-Nemon
Please join us in welcoming Michigan author, Barbara Stark-Nemon for her latest novel, Hard Cider.
Abbie Rose Stone's acquired wisdom runs deep, and so do her scars. She has successfully navigated the shoals of a long marriage, infertility, challenging children, and a career. Now it's her turn to realize her dream: producing hard apple cider along the northern shores of Lake Michigan that she loves. She manages to resist new versions of the old pull of family dynamics that threaten to derail her plan--but nothing can protect her from the shock a lovely young stranger delivers when she exposes a long-held secret.
In the wake of this revelation, Abbie must overcome circumstances that severely test her self-determination, her loyalties, and her understanding of what constitutes true family. In Hard Cider, Barbara gives readers a moving, captivating exploration of family structure, parenthood, and reinvention.
This event is free and copies of Hard Cider will be sold before and after this event.
