In Conversation with Mindy Friddle

June 4 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Janelle Wolf longs to be the woman she once was— an adored wife, a loving mother, a career woman, a force in her community— before a mysterious car accident stole her memories, ruined her reputation, and upended her life. These days, her troubled family needs that capable woman from the past, the one she calls “ Janelle Before.” Enter Lana, an alluring and magnetic psychic healer who meets secretly with Janelle. Lana coaxes Janelle to remember the circumstances of her accident in order to recover Janelle’ s “ best self.” Instead, Janelle uncovers the ugly truth behind that night. The revelations unravel Janelle’ s marriage, disrupt her family, and turn her small southern town upside down. Written with wry humor, this diabolically entertaining tale of deception, temptation, and love is filled with dark twists, exploring what happens when the transgressions of the past come back with a vengeance.
