It wasn't my first intention to write Olivia's Gift as a pro-life novel, but as the story unfolded in my mind and heart, I knew the Holy Spirit was asking me to have this important theme running throughout the story. It's done in an age-appropriate way, with opportunities for parents and teachers to expand as much as they need to. Taught in Catholic schools, home schools, and parish classrooms, Olivia's Gift challenges and educates young readers as Olivia encounters people on her family vacation who teach her what the gift of life truly is. With a pro-modesty theme as well, it is a wholesome Catholic story for all ages. I wrote a discussion guide for teachers and parents to use alongside Olivia's Gift. If you are interested, please email Guide (at) Harveyhousepublishing (dot) com and I will email you the PDF free of charge. A visit to the same website will provide more information about this Catholic 'tween novel.
