Sequel to Call Me Lizzy
Call Me Loved is the long awaited sequel to Mary T. Wilkinson's first middle grade novel, Call Me Lizzy.
In 1967, ten year old Lizzy Roy has been living with her mother's parents in Tennessee because her parents left her to pursue their own careers. After the death of Lizzy’s father, killed in action in the Vietnam War, her alcoholic mother comes home to Tennessee.
So many events in her young life have left her feeling that she is not loved. Her mom and daddy have left her, her grandparents in Indianapolis have started giving love and attention to an orphan boy, the bus bully hates her, and her mother is too sick and dependent on others to give Lizzy the attention she so badly needs.
With help from her Tennessee Grandparents, Lizzy learns to depend on God as she tries to forgive her wayward mother, stay in contact with her father’s side of the family, grow in her friendship with her cousin and best friend, Shelby, and follow the Golden Rule even though it means getting along with the bus bully.
Call Me Loved will inspire readers of all ages to trust that God is faithful and loves His children unconditionally. In fact, He loves them most.
