Aaron Gourlie '04

Recently published a young adult novel "Of Peace and Precipitation", a story about a high school girl living with her mom that has a learning disability. The story mixes humor and heart as the heroine balances her complicated mother, drifting friendships, her boring church and high school life. Deeper acceptance of her own family, faith, and circumstances lead her to become empowered to not just focus on her own issues but to the needs of others as well. “I have a great deal of empathy towards students and especially students in difficult circumstances. I wrote this to inspire and show the hope we have in God,” Aaron writes. Professor of Education Adel Aiken writes of the book: “When Jen’s quirky mother, loneliness, and total humiliation conspire to ruin her freshman year, is there anything that can turn things around? Questions surrounding Jen’s relationships will compel you to keep reading to see if rainbows really do follow the rain.” Of Peace and Precipitation is available on Amazon and through Wipf and Stock Publishers.
