No Love in the Garden of Eden…
Eden Rose has learned to deal with her mother’s criticism that she can do nothing right. What she can’t deal with are the arguments between her parents. To escape their angry words, she finds refuge in an old abandoned house. She always returns home, hoping her mother will love her one day, even though Eden’s not sure what the word love means.
Three other teens with problems also hang out at the Old House. Meeting Murphy, Toby, and Josh changes Eden’s world, and she begins to have faith in herself. Perhaps she can do something right, after all.
Thanks to the boys, she begins to understand the meaning of love. But will it be enough to save her broken home life?
And now for the cover… are you ready?

About Beverly Stowe McClure
When Beverly Stowe McClure was a child she hated to read. Even though her eighth-grade English teacher sent her poem “Stars” to the National High School Poetry Association, and it was published in Young America Sings, an anthology of Texas high school poetry, she hated to write. Nevertheless, she managed to squeak through high school, where she played the clarinet in the band, was a majorette and graduated. She attended Midwestern State University, which meant reading a lot of books. She surprised everyone, including herself, by graduating Cum Laude with a degree in education.
For twenty-two years Beverly taught children to read and write. They taught her patience. And along the way, she made an amazing discovery: reading was fun and writing was even more exciting. She gives her fifth-grade students the credit for showing her the magic in books.
Today, she lives in the country with her two fur-babies. She takes long walks and snaps pictures of wildlife, flowers and clouds. To relax, she plays the piano. The cats do not appreciate good music and hide when she tickles the ivories.
She also writes stories for children and teens: everything from contemporary to historical to fantasy. She has twelve books published and three more under contract. Her short stories have been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies, as well as leading children’s magazines.
