A young girl risks everything to fulfill her life's purpose.
Lula Darling and her mother, Ella Mae, have escaped the terrors of slavery in the deep antebellum South and now want to enjoy their freedom and adjust to life in the twenty-first century. They soon learn, however, that their newfound existence is anything but safe or easy. Lula and Ella Mae struggle to balance the overwhelming challenges of modern-day living with the demands of keeping their past a secret and the unyielding desire to make a difference.
"A Life's Purpose," the compelling follow-up to Alex Dean's "The Secret Life of Lula Darling," follows the lives of three young people finding their way in a world filled with hate, racial injustice, and the personal drama in their own lives.
