Wade Rouse (as Viola Shipman): The Hope Chest

Left Bank Books

Left Bank Books welcomes beloved author of The Charm Bracelet Wade Rouse (writing as Viola Shipman), who will sign and discuss his new novel, The Hope Chest!

Ever since she was diagnosed with ALS, fiercely independent Mattie doesn’t feel like herself. Her devoted husband, Don, doesn’t want to imagine life without his wife of nearly fifty years, but Mattie isn’t likely to make it past their anniversary. But when Rose, Mattie’s new caretaker, and her young daughter, Jeri, enter the couple’s life, happiness and the possibility for new memories return. Together they form a family, and Mattie is finally able to pass on her memories from the hope chest she received from her mother. A beautiful story about the unconditional love and support of family, The Hope Chest will remind you that hope can be found where and when you least expect it.

“A rare jewel that will be passed down one generation to the next, and from one book club member to the next until everyone has read this heartfelt story.” —Adriana Trigiani, All the Stars in Heaven (of The Charm Bracelet)

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of The Hope Chest from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
