Author Mireille Auxila provides young adult readers with a life-changing perspective in Mending Maria: A Novella ($13.99, paperback 979-8-9854412-1-5 and $6.99 ebook) Also available in Spanish, El Remiendo de Maria: Novela ($13.99, paperback 979-8-2180641-4-3 and $6.99 ebook).
In the first of a three-part series, Auxila’s book takes readers through the life of Maria, a broken teenage seamstress in the early 60’s and her journey to redemption. María had her whole life planned. Her only focus was the church and the call on her life. Then one day, a decision and it’s impending results, changed her path in life forever. As it often happens to young people facing life’s challenges, Maria lost faith in everything and everyone. Readers will gain inspiration as they follow the young woman’s remarkable story; a lesson that forgiveness is possible, even the act of forgiving oneself.
“This book is about how sometimes people can let what others think of them dictate how they live,” said Auxila. “You can miss out on blessings and opportunities that way.”
