Life and change go hand-in-hand. But, change is often something we don't expect or want. Today Maxine Marsolini and Jeannie St. John Taylor welcome Karen Halvorsen Schreck. Her new novel, Broken Ground, tells the touching story of a young oil widow and the massive life changes she must navigate as she makes the journey from the dusty Texas oil fields to a promising California campus. Rich historical detail and unforgettable characters delight readers. And, the issues of that long-ago day are still playing out today, like migrant workers, grief, and change.
