At 97-years-old, Grace knew her time on Earth was nearing its end. With life growing shorter by the day, Grace also knew that she had to escape the controlling clutches of her son so that she could die in peace at the family ranch in Oregon. Would her granddaughter, Georgiana – who recently escaped an abusive relationship – be able to save her grandmother and herself? Michel Strickland tells the touching story of two women on a journey of self-discovery and love in her new novel, “The Bee Road” (published by iUniverse).
Grace and Georgiana have both made sacrifices for love. Despite the 50-year age difference between them, they learn that their relationships and the sacrifices they made to have them aren’t so different.
Georgiana just left an abusive relationship, which costs her the custody of a beloved stepdaughter. With this sacrifice fresh in her mind, she heeds the call of her grandmother and heads to California to save her.
Grace has had the gift of second-sight since she was a little girl, allowing her to see glimpses of the future. With her life nearing an end, she only wishes to die at her home in Oregon. What terrifies her more than dying however is the future – which she can’t see for the first time. Together, she will journey with Georgiana to her home in Oregon, a journey that will see them finding their true selves.
Strickland hopes her book will comfort readers and assure them that no matter what mistakes they have made, or what challenges stand in the way – the human spirit can and will prevail.
