The peaceful town of Lake Emily will never be the same when Trudy Ploog comes to stay!
Mae Morgan’s flamboyant art teacher sister, Trudy Ploog, moves to the quiet, rural town of Lake Emily, Minnesota, to be closer to Bert Biddle, her shy, unassuming farmer boyfriend. Everything is perfect and then…the school board cuts the Gifted and Talented program and rumors of more cuts fly.
Outraged, Trudy kicks up a whirlwind, beginning with a letter to the paper that questions the very foundation of small-town life–high school sports! Soon the whole town is talking, and Trudy and Bert are put to the test. Meanwhile, the Morgan family is recovering from the loss of a child and the death of a life-long dream as Virginia Morgan helps a father and daughter rediscover life.
A hopeful story of facing the challenges of life with courage and learning to see with eyes of grace, Dandelions in a Jelly Jar gently reminds you that the best bouquets are dandelions.
“A welcomed new voice in a genre that is begging for novels of this caliber. Bravo.”
–Ted Dekker, best-selling author of Blink and Thr3e
“Traci’s books… call my name and soothe my soul.” –Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of All Together in One Place and A Name of Her Own
