Lucinda Askew Pens Her First Novel

Lucinda Askew has recently released a new book entitled “Joy Comes in the Morning.”The book’s title is based on Psalms 30, and the main character, Tracey overcomes some Davidian obstacles due to beauty, charm, education, wit and plain old stubborn will. When faced with the possibility of losing her beloved family, she brokers a deal with her boss, a wealthy banker.

“This novel came about because myself and others have held on to past hatred without being able to move forward. In writing these fictional characters, I have learned we have got to let go of our past pain and hurt in order to receive the blessings that GOD has for us,” explained Askew.

“Joy Comes in the Morning,” unapologetically pleads with us to come to terms with our own unforgiveness. There are passages in the book that are “real, raw and insightful,” as stated by Dr. Sheila Tribble in the book’s forward. “The intimate themes, the exploration of love, responsibility and self-worth and empowerment are what give us the opportunity to grow.”

The book is dictated to the memory of the late Rev. Dr. Arthur T. Jones, who used to say “you can’t fix what you won’t face, the truth is messy, and people are messy.” PJ, (Pastor Jones) encouraged me to pursue my education and fulfill my destiny as an author, playwright, producer and director.
