Overview

An inspiring book demonstrating how self-expression through the arts enabled the author to transcend life's daunting moments.

A quintessential woman's book, Pink Lemonade chronicles a six-decade journey through the arts, using the steppingstones of poetry, drawing, short stories and essays to navigate difficult pathways.

Along the way, author Samantha Adams introduces us to some fascinating women, from shy Martha Brown, the Campbell family laundress, to Sister Stanisia, an accomplished artist/nun who doesn't know where babies come from. Other characters portrayed are Kara Winston, a young mother who finds the courage to return to college in an unlikely place; Ellie, an attractive, middle-aged divorcee undergoing sterilization; and Elizabeth, an older married women who is forced to let go of a loved one twice.

Divided into six chapters illustrated by Adams, Pink Lemonade offers hope to anyone struggling with unexpressed feelings of sadness, powerlessness or anger. Samantha Adams demonstrates through her own experiences how the arts, especially those with spiritual underpinnings, enabled her to transform life's tragedies into triumphs.
