Waking Up Joy: A Novel, by Author Tina Ann Forkner

WAKING UP JOY  – 2015 Holt Medallion Finalist

Behind every lost dream lies a second chance…
Set in rural Oklahoma, Waking Up Joy is a tale about a woman set on bringing change to sleepy little Spavinaw Junction where her family has always been known for their Momma’s magic teas and the Talley propensity for getting into trouble. When the spirited middle sister, Joy Talley, wakes up from a coma, people think she’s off her rocker, but she has never felt better and is determined to set the past right. Now Joy must face her darkest secret and risk reopening old wounds concerning an old flame. Taking risks brings change, and suddenly Joy’s once humdrum life is anything but routine.
“A refreshingly candid look at the ties that bind…Waking Up Joy will enchant you with its lively prose and heartfelt humor… Bravo, Tina!” ~ Carla Stewart, The Hatmaker’s Heart
