26 May Learning a Better Way Forward—with Amanda Cox
Today I’m sharing a conversation with Amanda Cox. We discuss her latest book, The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery and how this novel brought out the dynamic between mothers and daughters. We also talk about her background in counseling and how that affects the development of characters in her books.
Here’s a description of the novel, from Revell:
How do you respond when hidden things are revealed? Professional counselor and author, Amanda Cox plunges readers into a dual-time tale in The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery. This masterful work weaves together the lives of three generations of women, exploring the dynamics between mothers and daughters and the way the secrets they kept shaped the women they became. After tragedy plunges Sarah Ashby into grief and unresolved anger, she decides to return to her hometown to follow her long-denied dream of running Old Depot Grocery alongside her mother and grandmother. But when she arrives, her mother, Rosemary, announces that she is planning on closing the store. The present time line weaves with the past when Sarah tries to uncover the real
reason behind her mother’s decision but instead stumbles across a love letter intended for her grandmother. Each woman must face how their lives have been altered by false information and secrets and discover the healing power of telling the truth.
