Synopsis of book The Foundation
Julie Henson is finally living the life of her dreams. Following a difficult divorce, she re-marries and is blessed with the addition of a beautiful daughter into the family. Surrounded by close friends and supported by a strong church family, Julie is content to spend the rest of her life in Morganton, NC.
But life doesn’t always proceed according to one’s plans. Unexpectedly her husband is required to find new employment, resulting in a move to coastal Brunswick County, NC, and into a very different lifestyle. Julie’s life abruptly changes from serenity to turmoil as she is faced with social issues, racial conflict involving her son, suspected infidelity of her husband, and uninvited advances from a younger Country Club golf pro.
Sensing cracks developing in the foundations of both her marriage and church life relationships, Julie must choose whether to impulsively flee from Brunswick County or to remain with her husband. And her final decision is complicated by yet another conflict-the arrival of a terrible storm which threatens the very existence of their lives.
(The Foundation is written for reading on a standalone basis or as the sequel to The Neighbor by Robert Moore)
