Laws of Harmony ~ Judith Ryan Hendricks
So...what's your novel really about?
Welcome guest author Judith Ryan Hendricks as she tells the story behind The Laws of Harmony.
Although its inciting incident is the death of a child, The Laws of Harmony is not about death. It’s about living in the aftermath of loss, something we all know about. Whether it’s loss due to death or divorce, loss of a friend, a job, a home…there are losses in all our lives and we all find ways to keep on living. Sunny Cooper finds consolation in the same things that see the rest of us through—food, music, friendship, love and our capacity to find humor in the most unlikely places.
And by humor, I don’t mean jokes. Humor is not about being funny. Real humor is a state of mind, a way of looking at life that prevents you from throwing yourself off the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, no matter how sad you are, or how desperate. Which is why I can’t write a book without humor anymore than I can write a book without food or music, friendship or love.
