One Book One Community: Ellen Marie Wiseman's The Life She Was Given

The One Book One Community 
is delighted to partner with the Library in presenting:
 
ELLEN MARIE WISEMAN
author of
THE LIFE SHE WAS GIVEN
 
Ellen Marie Wiseman is the bestselling author of four internationally published novels. Her latest novel, The Life She Was Given, was selected as the 2019 One Book for the Easton community to read and discuss. It is a vivid, daring novel about the devastating power of family secrets—beginning in the poignant, lurid world of a Depression-era traveling circus and coming full circle in the transformative 1950s. Moving between stories, Ellen Marie Wiseman portrays two extraordinary, very different women in a novel that, while tender and heartbreaking, offers moments of joy and indomitable hope.
