Meant to Be
A NovelBook - 2002
When thirteen-year-old Patience Jan Campbell, living in a blue-collar suburb of Chicago, loses her voice, the ability to clearly articulate her dreams, she calls for her grandmother, Hannah - who died before Jan was born - in prayer. Through Hannah's eyes we follow Jan through her early twenties as she moves to the city, becomes college-educated, and begins a career. A reflective father, a misunderstood mother, a sage aunt and two pivotal lovers contribute to Jan's journey to womanhood, and the emotional bridges they find, build or destroy, encircle her life.
