An Evening with Lauren B. Davis - Dundurn

An Evening with Lauren B. Davis

Presented by the Waterloo Public Library in partnership with Words Worth Books, this event highlights best-selling, critically acclaimed, and Giller-longlisted author Lauren B. Davis as she discusses her latest book, Even So, a novel that explores the challenge and necessity of loving difficult people. 

About the book:

Angela Morrison has it all. She’s married to a wealthy man, adores her son, grows orchids, and volunteers at Our Daily Bread Food Pantry. What more could she want? More — much more. And she’s willing to risk everything after meeting Carsten, the landscaper with the glacier-blue eyes.

Sister Eileen, who runs Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, struggles with the silence of God and harbours a secret she believes is unforgivable. She yearns to convince Angela she is loved by God, despite her selfishness and destructive behaviour, but in order for that to be authentic Eileen must learn to love her first, and that’s no easy task — especially after Angela causes a terrible tragedy. Through the crucible of their relationship, Angela and Eileen discover how caring for the most difficult among us and practising forgiveness, no matter how painful, opens a door to the miracle of transformation.
