Brentwood - Publication Party for Laura Nicole Diamond's "Shelter Us"!
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes author Laura Nicole Diamond to the store for her publication party for Shelter Us on Tuesday, June 9th at 6:30pm. Please join us as she discusses and signs her new novel!
Lawyer-turned-stay-at-home mom Sarah Shaw is struggling to keep it together for her two young sons and law professor husband. Since the death of their infant daughter, her husband has been buried in his career, her friendships have withered, and Sarah remains lost in a private world of grief. Then one day, while walking in L.A., Sarah's heart catches at the sight of a young homeless woman pushing a baby in a stroller and saving them becomes her obsessive mission. An unlikely bond grows between Sarah and the young mother, Josie. When tragedy threatens Josie, Sarah discovers that she is capable of deceptions and transgressions she never imagined. Her lies unleash a downward spiral that will threaten her marriage, family and her sanity. Shelter Us speaks to the quiet joys and anxieties of parenthood and illuminates a place all parents know: that shadowy space between unconditional love and fear of unbearable loss.
Laura Nicole Diamond's first career was raising a ruckus as a civil rights lawyer. Motherhood jump-started her writing muse, and has now become her professional focus. She is the editor of the anthology, Deliver Me: True Confessions of Motherhood.
