About Patricia Allwood

A writer loves words...
the smell of books...
the image of a child, legs folded, on a crazy quilt,
under a tree,
in deep shade on a summer's afternoon
For writers read...and read...and read.

A mother loves words...
"I love you."
"Mom, see me, see me."
"Can you help me?"
"Car keys?"
"Come hear the lungs your new grandchild has."

A teacher loves words...
"I don't understand; say that again."
"I didn't know I could write like that."
"Now I get it!"

And God loves words...
So much He spoke and the world popped.
God wraps Himself in words--yours and mine...
An audience of One.

It’s the 1950s and young Rosa Farmer can’t understand why her father went to all the trouble to dig a bomb shelter in their yard and then permitted a bomb of gargantuan proportion to fall on their family. Old Souls Inn is a literary fiction story about forgiveness and redemption, prejudice and discrimination, saints and sinners—and what it takes to truly become an “old soul.”
