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?

About the Book

Sheila Franklin has lived three separate lives. Now a conservative pastor’s wife in Chicago, she is skilled at hiding secrets—a talent birthed during childhood romps through the music-filled streets of New Orleans. But when the son she bore at the age of eighteen comes back looking for answers and desperate for help, her greatest secret—and greatest regret—is revealed.

Eager to right past wrongs, Sheila’s heart floods with memories of lyrical jazz music and a worn-out Bible. But when her husband learns of her shady history, Sheila is suddenly faced with an impossible decision: embrace the dream—and son—she abandoned against her will or give in to the demands of her safe but stifled life. As she struggles to reclaim both her son and her identity, Sheila soon realizes that God’s grace spans both seas and secrets and that He is all she really needs. With dynamic writing that makes the reader feel the heartache of a teenage mother, struggle with the disillusionment of an abandoned boy, and revel in the idea of grace despite flaws, rising star Patti Lacy takes her fans on a journey they won’t want to end—and won’t soon forget.
