Sarah Healy, author of Can I Get an Amen?, will visit Phoenix Books Burlington to discuss and read from her new novel.

As an extra treat, attendees will be treated to free ice cream from Ben & Jerry's! (While supplies last!)

This event is free and open to the public.  Copies of Can I Get an Amen? will be available to buy and have signed by Healy at the event.

Can I Get an Amen? is about the way life can suddenly change and make us question all of our relationships--with our family, with our faith, and with our childhood dreams of how life would be. Growing up, Ellen Carlisle was a Christian: she went to Jesus camp, downed stale Nilla wafers at Sunday school, and never, ever played with Ouija boards.  In exchange, God took care of her.  He showed his love through expensive clothes, new cars and extended vacations.  Now, years later, with infertility pushing her marriage to the brink of divorce, Ellen finds herself unemployed and living with her right-wing, Born Again Christian parents in her suburban New Jersey hometown. The voice is wonderful and the story is funny while it tackles some tough situations.  With wit and warmth, Healy puts a new spin on love, faith and family--exploring the difficulties that arise from conflicting religious beliefs between loved ones and how the ties that bind us are not always what we expect them to be.

Sarah Healy lives in Williston with her busband and three sons, where she works in marketing consultancy.  Can I Get An Amen? is her first novel. You can learn more about her at sarah-healy.com and facebook.com/sarahhealyauthor.
