About The Book

 

The Sea Glass Gift is the story of Jenna, a woman who survived child abuse and the surrender of her son for adoption. She walks a journey of brokenness and painful memories and then her life takes a turn when her son contacts her. As they exchange letters, they uncover insights about the relations among fragility, transparency, and destruction in a world of persistent change. Combining the intrigue of New Orleans, with the allure and science of glassblowing, Jenna’s story, based on a true one, is a tale of souls on the edge, which captures the hope that the broken bits of life, like shards of glass, can be transformed into spectacular displays of artistry.

Julie Rogers-Martin gleans stories from 30 years of working with at-risk youth and witnessing the shattering changes in their lives. She sheds light on pain and hope, brokenness and restoration, abandonment and homecoming.
