The bestselling author will discuss her “hauntingly beautiful” novel about a family that must overcome heartbreak to reclaim goodness and peace with fellow bestseller Maynard, author of the mesmerizing family story Count the Ways, in this Northshire virtual event.

Tickets Available Here!

After a sudden and terrible loss, how does a loving family find their way back to the goodness and peace they once shared? Reviewers and readers have called this literary historical novel "hauntingly beautiful," "a masterpiece of compassion," "a page-turner and an artistic triumph."

Written by a masterful storyteller, this is a book that illuminates the journey we make through grief to healing.

In the midst of a nearly perfect life, Doris Senter is thankful but wary. "We can't ever know what will come," she says. When an unimaginable tragedy turns the family of five into a family of four, everything the Senters held faith in is shattered. The family is consumed by sorrow and guilt. Slowly, the surviving family members find their way to forgiveness--of themselves and of each other.

Few writers know the human heart and the burden of grief as New York Times bestselling author Meredith Hall (Without a Map). This is a radiant novel of goodness and love--both its gifts and its obligations--that will stay with readers long after the last page. With a rare tenderness and compassion, Beneficence shows broken hearts becoming whole as this family reclaims their love and peace.
