Title: My Name is Sam...And Heaven is Still Shining Through
Author: Joe Siccardi
Genre: Christian-themed fictional memoir
Release Date: August 25, 2019
Sit down with a cup of coffee or a nice wine and visit with Sam as she shares a lifetime of memories in this new Christian-themed fictional memoir. My Name Is Sam ... and Heaven Is Still Shining Through is a follow-up to the break out novella, Heaven Shining Through. It introduces Sam (Samantha), her family and friends in more detail than the original, and picks up where the novella left off. I hope readers get to know Sam as a friend, a life long friend. Share her life ... complete with some drama, some humor, some heart tugs. Just a free-willed suburban Jersey girl trying to figure out this journey called life with the presence of God in an ordinary life as the underlying theme.
