This Week at Night Writers: Genny

Author Genny MediumGenny read an edited scene and a new scene from Princess Shining Star, formerly titled Lost and Wound.  18-year-old Jessie has left home, frustrated with what she feels is her mother stifling and controlling her.  She has been warned by a mutual friend not to take an apartment with Laura.

As Saturday morning dawns, Laura determines to clean the house, despite Jessie’s attempts to sleep.

In a new scene, Jessie calls home for the first time since leaving.  Her mother invites her and Laura both for Easter.  Through Laura’s eyes–a girl raised in an orphanage and by foster parents–Jessie begins to appreciate her home.
