ABOUT THE BOOK
Author: Beth Troy
Publisher: Kingsbury Publishing
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Are we the sum of our circumstances or is there … more?
In a debut novel readers are calling “true to life,” “captivating,” and “cleverly written,” author Beth Troy takes on the story of Lu Sokolowski and her life upended. Lu’s plans have turned sideways, taking her back to the family and town she always planned to leave.
Lu is a modern woman’s honest journey to faith, that unapologetically addresses:
•The big questions women ask about their beliefs.
•The struggles women face in creating a fulfilling life.
•The complexity of family relationships.
•The tension between hope and reality.
Lu is a story for readers looking for real growth in relatable characters who aren’t afraid to ask real questions. It’s for women who want to experience the full spectrum of who they are and what they believe. It’s for women who want a story about how faith integrates into the whole life of a woman. You will want to share this story with a friend – after you read it again yourself.

Lu knows how to make the one thing – pork and sauerkraut. Her go-to recipe would have been the one her Polish Grandma, Pat Sokolowski, taught her, which just happens to be the one my Polish Grandma, Virginia Barovian, taught me! The ingredients are cheap and few, and no cooking experience is required because it’s your standard crockpot dump-n-run.
1 4-6 pound pork shoulder
2 cans of sauerkraut
2 T brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
- Rub the pork shoulder with salt and pepper and place in the crockpot.
- Dice the onion and mix together with sauerkraut and brown sugar and nestle around the pork in the crockpot.
- Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
- At serving time, shred the pork and enjoy over mashed potatoes, egg noodles, spaetzle, or starch of your choice!
