You've met the incomparable Molly Peale Wilde in North of Channing Street and The Wildes of Murrells Inlet, but though she's previously faced tough circumstances and even tougher choices, she's never before endured the level of devastation she encounters in When the Palms Turn Yellow.
The first chink in Molly's happy existence appears when she hears that a cherished loved one is terminally ill. As she tries to prepare herself for the worst, a friend is crippled by a serious accident. Struggling to remain open-hearted, Molly offers to care for him and invites him to live at the Wilde home on Murrells Inlet.
Almost like a one-two punch, this novel serves up Molly's tragic-yet-hopeful story in two parts. While the first deals with more personal loss, the second focuses on a larger scale survival situation when Molly goes on an island vacation with friends during which a tsunami hits.
An old flame from Molly's high school days shows up on the island and has reformed to a christian counsler. He was Molly's first love and had returned after 40 years only to break her heart again. Old flame or new friends becomes her dilemma.
Mingling humor and hope with suspense and grief, author Gloria Spivey Flecker reveals new depths of love and courage in yet another remarkable tale of Molly Peale Wilde.
