A Novel by Melinda Johnson

Lydia’s life is turning upside down. Her family has converted to Orthodox Christianity without her, she’s just about to leave home for college, one of her friends is pregnant, and soon she’ll be facing all the trials and temptations encountered by every young adult who’s on her own for the first time. Lydia needs a friend badly—and she finds one in the most unexpected place: an icon of St. Lydia. Young Lydia pours out her troubles in letters to St. Lydia, who (invisibly to Lydia) answers, guiding her through her time of troubles with deep love and compassion.

About the Author: Melinda Johnson is an Orthodox Christian, wife, mother, and writer. She is the bemused and enchanted guardian of a corgi named Ferdinand who supervises the writing of her books. Ferdinand also bosses Melinda's office, the deer in her backyard, her family's daily schedule, and her attempts to read quietly on the sofa.
