The Mind of a Child
Two eras, two women, one story of strength and love.
1940: When Jessa gives birth to her youngest son, instinct tells her all’s not well. Her husband and doctor are keeping something from her, but what?
2007: Willa adjusts to her new job serving as an assistant teacher in a special needs classroom. At first, she balks at the work she has to do – often involving bathroom issues and tantruming children. As she grows into the job, she comes to truly love her students, even as she learns that things aren’t all that they seem within her own family.
The Mind of a Child paints a vivid picture of contrasting times, disparate perceptions, and the women who shaped them. As they rely on their wits, family, and growing faith in God, their stories intertwine, teaching them that love can overcome any challenge.
The Mind of a Child is Marshanne Mishoe’s first novel. She started her writing career back in the mid-1980s as a television news reporter and anchor. She worked at WIS-TV in Columbia, South Carolina, for the better part of a decade, and before that, she had a two-year stint as a writer and producer for SC-ETV’s satellite branch in Beaufort, SC.
Marshanne makes her home just north of Atlanta. She lives with her dog Cody full-time and intermittently with her grown children, who occasionally come home to roost for a while.
