Engaging Methuen Readers

Book Cover: Garden of Hope

Author Jo Piazza O’Mara is coming to the Nevins Saturday April 11th!

Please join us in welcoming author Jo Piazza O’Mara to the Nevins Memorial Library!  She will be sharing her debut novel, Garden of Hope which is set in her hometown of Lawrence, Massachusetts!

The robust Agosti family shared almost everything with each other—laughter and good-natured teasing, genuine love and loyalty, and lots of Mama’s mouthwatering Italian food. But a devastating illness and the discovery of one, decades-old secret tore father and son apart and threatened to undermine the once-solid family foundation of three generations. Told from the perspective of oldest sister Trina, Garden of Hope celebrates the joys of a small-town life, the privilege of being surrounded by God’s love in a Christian family, and the peace and redemption that comes when forgiveness happens and joy is rediscovered. – from
