“A PARTING GLASS” Audio
By Author Tess Banion & Illustrator Paul Flinders
“One of those rare novels that will linger in the mind and memory of the reader long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf.” ~ James A Cox, The Midwest Book Review
M Meet Elizabeth. She’s unruly—the kind of child you’d find playing in a train yard, or climbing trees. She has a secret, a hidden place where she stashes found objects and hides from scary monsters. An eleven-year-old with uneven bangs and a grand imagination, Elizabeth sees the world as she needs it to be and makes the real unreal; a proper skill to have when born into a family cursed with hard realities. She hopes to reach the age of twelve, leave Catholic school and her nemesis Sister Mary Paul behind. But before that can happen, she needs to make a change in her world.
A Parting Glass is an exciting and suspenseful journey, filled with heartwarming moments. This is a story of transformation and coming of age in the spirit of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and the The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls.
