The Bench


July 13, 2023

Book Details

Overwhelmed, Miranda feels she is failing to live up to her mother's perfect image. Perhaps running for Mom of the Year on the 25th anniversary of her mother's win would change that and atone for the role that Miranda believes she played in her mom's death. Unfortunately, Miranda's son's behavior might prove her failure and disqualify any chance she has in the contest. A desperate prayer leads her to a park bench where she meets a remarkable stranger. The bench becomes a path to purpose as old dreams Miranda set on the shelf are rekindled through wisdom imparted from this unlikely friend. When crisis hits and old family secrets erupt, will Miranda follow the woman's advice and continue her journey to personal purpose, or will she hide behind the façade that she, like her mother, worked so hard to build?

Author Description

Jen Brewer is a nourisher of bodies and souls. When she's not caring for her seven children or planning date nights with her husband, you will find her writing, speaking or building up forgotten communities around the world through digging gardens, goal setting, and nutrition education. Born and raised in Burley, Idaho, she now claims Minnesota as home, but has instilled within her children a love of all things potato, and misses her western mountains terribly. Previous books include Be the Chocolate Chip, Stop Dieting and Start Losing Weight For Good, and We Are Daughters of Our Heavenly Father
