Francis Burch knows Clella is unlike any woman he's ever met. Even though she is thirteen years older, if she could be at his side, he believes he can do anything.
Life was never easy for Kenneth Lathrom and all too soon he surrenders to drinking, gambling, and other women. When he once again realizes he will always only love one woman, Clella, is it too late? "Marriage isn't a happy-ever-after," his grandfather had told him, "but if you love your wife, you've done what the good book says." Kenneth isn't sure why he forgot that advice. If he could turn back time, he would do it all differently.
After learning she is pregnant with her seventh child, Clella must choose between the husband who left her and the exciting younger guitar player who had been there when she needed someone. Whatever her decision, it will dramatically affect all those she loves.
"Clella" is based on a true story. The family names have not been changed. She is my mother and I am the seventh child. Within these pages are two beautiful love stories and one woman's struggle to model the woman in Proverbs 31.
