Stuarts Draft, VA, October 03, 2023 –(PR.com)– Lois Williams, a retired Speech and Language Pathologist who lives with her husband in Virginia and enjoys reading mysteries, playing the piano, and taxiing her three grandchildren to sports activities, has completed her new book, “The Journey Road Home”: a poignant tale of a young teenager who attempts to live her life in accordance with God’s commandments, but finds her world turned upside down when she and her family move to Zimbabwe for one of her father’s missionary trips.
Williams shares, “Growing up as a pastor’s daughter in small town Mason, South Carolina, Mazelle Jacobs struggles to journey through a life approved by God and man. Pastor Max Jacobs, aka Poppa, and his conservative views have Mazelle questioning right from wrong daily.
“The sixteen-year-old teenager uses the Ten Commandments as her biblical guideline as she encounters situations with church members, the neighbor next door, and her science teacher. Her best friend, Clover, tempts Mazelle to enjoy life by breaking her tablets of stone.
“A major life change occurs when Pastor Jacobs moves his family to Zimbabwe, Africa for an extended missionary assignment. This unexpected journey, to a country with different cultural and social views, has Mazelle reassessing life values through the eyes of a people who are living in the present. As Mazelle realizes God’s love for his people, she finds humanity at its finest.”
