A Fireproof Home For The Bride
This coming-of-age story set in the 1950s introduces Emmy Nelson as she gets swept up in a family secret while attempting to step outside of her parents’ world and strike out on her own. These characters and their struggles hit close to home, particularly the racial, gender, and religious prejudices that Emmy fights so hard to escape. She’s the type of character you cheer for – wholeheartedly.
But A FIREPROOF HOME FOR THE BRIDE also has the charm of detail that will drop readers into its time and place: the home economics class lecture on cuts of meat, the group date to the diner, the small-town movie theater popcorn for a penny. It also has a love story—the wrong love giving way to the right—and most of all the pull of a great main character whose self-discovery sweeps the plot forward.
