Thread for Pearls, A Story of Resilient Hope is an award-winning novel available now at online vendors in print, e-book and audiobook formats.
A near-death experience in a car with her Mother; running from tear gas at a Vietnam War rally hand-in-hand with her Pop; a year in India learning side-by-side the country's 'untouchables;' the highs and lows of living on a rural Pennsylvania commune... and all before Fiona Sprechelbach's thirteenth birthday. Set during one of the most politically divisive eras in American history, Thread for Pearls is a coming of age tale that takes us on a young heroine's journey to faith and freedom amidst a turbulent family dynamic.Details
"Grow" is a music video featuring violin, piano and percussion. The original composition, by pianist Tammy Hall, was written as one of the tracks for "Rejuve II," a CD with a soothing intent, especially suitable for those with health challenges. The album was recorded at Fantasy Studios in 2006 but the footage was never before released. The footage was unearthed and edited together at the start of the U.S. Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns in 2020 when it seemed fitting to revisit this healing/soothing project in an effort to spread some hope and healing in challenging times.Details
