Recent release "Azaleas Blooming" from Covenant Books author Kathryn Gilligan is a compelling novel that introduces Ariana Matthews, an aspiring young artist in Wilmington, North Carolina, who is happy spending time at the beach with her friends until someone unexpectedly joins their group.
LYLE, Minn., September 15, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Kathryn Gilligan, a mother of four and grandmother of four who lives in Washington state with her husband, has completed her new book, "Azaleas Blooming": an engrossing novel that follows Ariana as she navigates a difficult time.
When Captain Scott Williamson, USMC, unexpectedly joins Ariana's group, his presence triggers childhood memories Ariana kept locked away for nearly a decade. As Ariana's world starts to unravel, she relies on her faith to help her as she struggles with her ability to forgive and her desire to love. Meanwhile, Scott does what he can to prove his friendship and loyalty despite opposition from Ariana.
Author Kathryn Gilligan takes readers into the world of her story, writing, "The Water Street Art Gallery in the historic downtown section of Wilmington closed hours ago, but Ariana Matthews' employer allowed her to remain after hours to work on her own art projects. She sat behind a large counter at the back of the gallery matting one of her most recent paintings: a watercolor of sand dunes stretching from one side of the canvas to the other and the vast sky meeting the ocean in the background. The soft blues and tan hues portrayed a serene landscape capturing her love of the beach as well as the natural beauty of God's creation. It was one of many landscapes she painted over the last several years since arriving in coastal North Carolina."
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Kathryn Gilligan's new book captivates readers as the past catches up with Ariana and her life hangs in the balance.
Readers can purchase "Azaleas Blooming" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
