See You Monday
A Christian Young Adult Historical Novel
To some, they are stories found in a history book of an era long gone, but Sandy Baron lived it. She was ten years old in 1963 and 1964, growing up on the edge of the great city of Chattanooga, TN. Desegregation was becoming a reality at her school, the civil rights movement was in full swing, Martin Luther King, Jr. moved a country in his iconic speech at the March for Jobs and Freedom, JFK was assassinated days before Thanksgiving, and the Beatles came to America but her story, her life, was about so much more than historical facts and events.
God used her in a miracle which helped her entire family. She witnessed God’s protection during civil rights protesting. She heard God’s whisper as He warned her of coming danger. She even saw what could only be described as an event of Biblical proportions while at summer camp. She saw death and pure evil on the same day in the backwoods’ mountains of Tennessee. She saw firsthand God’s healing power while in Washington, D.C. She witnessed one person making one small choice that impacted eternity and prompted change in her community. After this eventful year, her life was never the same. She became a lover of Christ, devoted to Him, and grateful for His love and grace.
When Sandy’s seventeen-year-old granddaughter, Grace, needs help for a school assignment, Sandy jumps on the opportunity to tell her this captivating story, one that’s been brimming inside for far too long. Grace listens and feels an awakening to God happening within her. She is seeing her school and friends through a different filter and it’s affecting everything in her life. She even witnesses the ripple effect of a miracle playing out generations later.
Those few weeks bring Grace to a choice. One choice. God is about to use her in a miracle, one with eternal value, if she makes the right one. If she doesn’t get it right, a life will be lost.
SEE YOU MONDAY alternates between present day and the early sixties in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is a fictional tale woven together by a series of true events as witnessed through the eyes of a little girl, and how God woke her up to Him.
