Patti Lacy Raybon Virtual Book Tour

The Life of a Preacher’s Kid.

I’ve now written TWO books (The Rhythm of Secrets & Reclaiming Lily) about preachers’ wives. Now I’ve taken on a PK!!! Joy, a confused, alienated preacher’s daughter, flaunts her purple hair and piercings in my new book, Reclaiming Lily. I can see where you think I’m a preacher’s kid.

Not.

Actually, my dad filled in as a lay pastor and taught Sunday school classes. Then after retirement, God led my parents to the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board and a ministry teaching English in China. Though I had NO CLUE back in 1988, my parents planted the seed for this my fourth book, Reclaiming Lily. Dr. Kai, my mother’s cancer doctor, shared her poignant story, which germinated that seed. The Divine Influence, the Holy Spirit, caused it to sprout!

About the Book

A storm the size of Texas brews when Gloria Powell and Kai Chang meet in a Dallas hotel. They have come to discuss the future of Lily, the daughter Gloria adopted from China and the sister Kai hopes to reclaim. Kai is a doctor who had to give up her little sister during the Cultural Revolution and has since discovered that an inherited genetic defect may be waiting to fatally strike Lily.

Gloria’s relationship with her daughter is tattered and strained, and the arrival of Kai, despite the woman’s apparent good intentions, makes Gloria fearful. Gloria longs to restore her relationship with Lily, but in the wake of this potentially devastating diagnosis, is Kai an answer to prayer…or will her arrival force Gloria to sacrifice more than she ever imagined?

  2. Hi Patti & Sharon –

    Always nice to see you both. Patti, we’re going to have to meet someday! We keep bumping into each other on the Net. :)

    I loved Reclaiming Lily. My fascination with Chinese culture began when I met a neighbor from Beijing. We still keep in touch after many years.

    Blessings,
    Susan :)
