Jo’s journey up from poverty was never certain, nor easy.
Born to a single mother in the 1960’s South, her life as a woman of color is burdened with disappointments, heartbreak and tragedy, but she always finds a way to persevere and rise above. Well, almost always.
Unlucky in love and unable to have a family of her own, Jo channels her God-given gifts into becoming Kentucky’s most successful female entrepreneur and a leading philanthropist.
Jo’s mentor, patriarch of one of the South’s most successful family-owned business empires, encourages her from an early age to embrace the practice of journaling.
Later in life, she’s persuaded to assist in publishing a non-fiction book about the principals of personal happiness and success based upon her journals. But will she live long enough to see it published, or to witness all of her philanthropic plans come to fruition?
Will she have to face her biggest life challenge alone, the one she’s powerless to overcome on her own?
Written in a fast-paced, page-turning style, Follow Your Dreams is the sequel to Gildersleeve’s debut novel Dancing Alone Without Music.
If you like Southern settings, memorable characters and engaging dialogue, you’ll enjoy this inspiring story because who doesn’t like second chances in life…and love? And if you enjoy Nicholas Sparks or Mitch Albom, you’ll love the books of Larry B. Gildersleeve, including his latest, The Girl on the Bench.
