02 Dec Learning About Ourselves Through History–with Candice Sue Patterson
Candice Sue Patterson studied at the Institute of Children’s Literature and is an active member of American Christian Fiction Writers. She lives in Indiana with her husband and three sons in a restored farmhouse overtaken by books. When she’s not tending to her chickens, watching her kids play sports, or helping children discover a love for reading as an elementary librarian, she’s working on a new story.
Candice has written several contemporary romances, but today we discuss her first full-length historical novel, Saving Mrs. Roosevelt, which released yesterday (December 1, 2021). We talk about the SPARS, the first female-only branch of the Coast Guard, around which this book is centered.
