Local author Honey Jo Senter has completed her first novel and will be signing copies next week in Richmond Hill and other locations.
Her book Salt Creek Road is "a daring story of her life growing up in Savannah." The book made its initial appearance on Amazon in late November.
This book is said to be based on a true story. It follows Honey Jo’s mother (Sophia in the book) who made the decision to give a child up for adoption in the late 60s. There the scandal begins.
According to a description from the author, "Sophia decides to hide the pregnancy from her father with the help of a downtown attorney who promised her the child was going to a young, wealthy, Christian couple who couldn't have children. When the child finds her way back to her mother more than 30 years later, the truth of who really got Sophia's baby is revealed."
Many Savannah natives who’ve read Salt Creek Road have reached out to Honey Jo, the author said. They’ve shared with her their memories of the landscape of the setting of this book, Broughton Street and many other areas of downtown Savannah.
Honey Jo and her two sisters, also characters in the book, will be together the week of March 13-20 for several book signings in the area. Signings will be held at the following locations:
The Green Spork Cafe & Market, 10747 Ford Avenue, Richmond Hill on Saturday, March 13 at 9:30 a.m.
