Liza Nash Taylor Book Launch: In All Good Faith

September 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at New Dominion Bookshop on September 10 at 7:00 pm as we celebrate the release of Liza Nash Taylor’s novel “In All Good Faith.” This in-person event will be cosponsored by WriterHouse and will be free and open to the public.

 

About the Book: In the summer of 1932, Americans are coming to realize that the financial crash of 1929 was only the beginning of hard times. In rural Virginia, May Marshall finds herself juggling her marriage with a tempting opportunity to revamp the family business to adapt to changing times.

 

In West End Boston, sixteen-year-old Dorrit Sykes is reclusive, held back by the anxiety attacks that have plagued her since childhood. She finds solace at the Boston Public Library, writing fairy stories for children.

 

When Dorrit accompanies her father to Washington, DC, in the summer of 1932 to camp out and march with twenty thousand veterans intending to petition President Hoover for early payment of war bonuses, she begins an odyssey that will redefine her faith, learning both self-sufficiency and how to accept help.

 

Dorrit and May’s lives intersect in ways that neither could have imagined or expected. Set against a backdrop of true historical events, In All Good Faith tells a story of two women’s unlikely success during the Great Depression.
