A confirmed atheist, David Foley surprises his friends and extended family members with his sensible but unorthodox (grand) parenting skills. His orphaned granddaughter, Leisl, learns that morality comes in many forms, and that her grandfather’s belief system may not model the religious undertones of her deceased mother’s family. Carmichael’s invites you to join Michael Hardesty, local author of The Grace of the Ginkgo for a book signing and presentation.
David Foley, a lonely, divorced businessman, is devastated when his only son dies at the hands of a terrorist in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War. Only the contemplation of his imminent grandchild rallies him from a debilitating depression.
