LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., September 8, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Fulton Books author Laura Stringfellow Wilson, a published short story writer and poet, a born storyteller, has completed her most recent book "Queen for a Day": a page-turning short read about Catty Wadsworth as she recounts the time when her favorite TV show brought her and Hastie Winship together. The year was 1957, Catty's in her ninth-grade year. It was during that year when she and Hastie became friends. Right from the start, Catty knew that he's a boy who is different from the rest; a rare one at that. But what she didn't know is that one day, she's going to avoid all the things that remind her of him, even his name.
Wilson shares, "'How would you like to be queen for a day?' Those words opened a popular game show of the 1950s.
Teenage girls like Catty Wadsworth gazed upon sweet ladies on the show, who receive a gift—such as a new stove! Each woman has submitted a story of a tragic accident, disease, or an important need, like a wheelchair. Catty hopes for a new car for the family so her mother, the sole breadwinner, can get to work alive.
Catty is a fantasizer; she dreams of Hollywood romances, but she lives in the reality of a single mom with low-paying jobs. She makes friends and leaves them, over and over, in a rootless journey through small Southern schools. Yet Catty has the spunk to make friends wherever she goes, even a boyfriend who promises her a car. Catty grows through tears and courage in this novel of a quest for security and a strong sense of self-worth."
Published by Fulton Books, Laura Stringfellow Wilson's book is a heart-rending tale of friendship and broken promises. The author invites everyone to walk with Catty as she embarks on a journey to healing and seeing her self-worth.
