Surprised by Love
by May Paddock
Despite all Joan does to protect & nurture her family, tragedy strikes. Joan’s desire to help leads her from the bohemian lofts of lower New York to the sun-drenched boardwalk of Venice Beach, to a snow-covered chauffeur’s cottage on Boston’s North Shore. She travels to war-weary Nicaragua. Her plan is to be helpful to the people there but instead she learns to protect & nurture herself.
