This free, live online event will pair legendary author Francine Rivers with T. I. Lowe, a bright new voice in contemporary women’s fiction.
T. I. Lowe is the author of bestselling novel Lulu’s Café, the Carolina Coast Series, and upcoming novel Under the Magnolias, a gritty yet tender coming-of-age story.
Francine and T. I. will discuss their Redeeming Love connection, Southern fiction, and how they write fiction that’s grounded in truth. They will also discuss what’s next for Francine, as well as T. I. Lowe’s new novel, Under the Magnolias.
Under the Magnolias introduces readers to Austin Foster, who is barely a teenager when her mama dies giving birth to twins, leaving her to pick up the pieces while holding her six siblings together and doing her best to stop her daddy from retreating into his personal darkness.
Scratching out a living on the family’s tobacco farm is as tough as it gets. When a few random acts of kindness help to ease the Fosters’ hardships, Austin finds herself relying upon some of Magnolia’s most colorful citizens for friendship and more. But it’s next to impossible to hide the truth about the goings-on at Nolia Farms, and Austin’s desperate attempts to save face all but break her.
Just when it seems she might have something more waiting for her—with the son of a wealthy local family who she’s crushed on for years—her father makes a choice that will crack wide-open the family’s secrets and lead to a public reckoning. There are consequences for loving a boy like Vance Cumberland, but there is also freedom in the truth.
