B.K. Froman’s newest release, just out on October 1, 2018, is a novel of growth, renewal, and finding oneself within the maelstrom of life.
In 1997, Rain, Oregon native Sophia Bolton still wants to fulfill her lifelong goal of saving humanity. To do so, she knows she needs to escape Rain, and it’s quirky collection of buried secrets, the convent, a jailbird, a buffalo, and crazy neighbors. Though her family–and their collective, perpetual messes–keeps trying to pull her back to Oregon, Sophia is certain she can overcome both her family needs and the obstacles in her way to finally finish a college degree.
To vent her frustrations with the constant struggle she must walk, Sophia creates a covert secret broadcast one night on the campus radio station. The secret becomes an obsession, and the airwaves soon become her own verbal diary, offering unseen listeners advice on how to survive the crazy, comical endeavor to grow up into a functioning adult. What does it mean? Why can’t she stop? And what will come of it all?
