About John Bloom and the Garden of Victory
Written by: Leigh Shearin | Length: 195 pages | Recommended for: Ages 9+
Summary: It’s the 1940’s and this is the story of John Bloom and his adventures, alongside his two best friends Joe and Chewie. It is the beginning of WWII and the events of the war are interwoven with the boys’ daily lives, but their outlooks are mostly joyful as they are wrapped up in the going ons of their own little worlds rather than that of the grown up issues around them.
As time passes, John and his friends come to learn that anyone, not just soldiers, can make a difference. They learn about the ultimate success which comes from committing to something, and that by breaking down a seemingly insurmountable task into small steps can make it seem simple.
This is a story about faith, endurance and sturdy values that transcend time and cultural differences. It’s also about seeing the humor in life, and helping others to see it too.
About the Author: Leigh has a B.A. in Studio Art and worked as a Graphic Artist and Photographer before earning an A.A.S in Culinary Art. She’s worked as a Chef, Baker and Culinary Art Instructor. Most recently, she and her husband have developed their own small, sustainable farm, Winter’Rest Farm in north Central New York. She’s written stories and poems throughout it all, some published, some tucked away. She hopes to move towards full-time writing in the very near future.
