About this title


Enjoy two compelling stories about life and love. Discover how aging painter Sam Grant finds immortality, and then travel with adolescent Mary as she seeks the truth about herself.

About the Author:

Aging landscape painter Sam Grant of Time to Sow, Time to Reap is separated from his upwardly mobile wife. Gloria, whom he calls Old Glory. Although they live apart, she continues to visit him, and Sam is inspired to paint glory in the nude. He tells her he will immortalize her, and at the same time, transform himself from an average painter into a great artist.

He soon learns that Glory is ill. She is terrified of dying and returns to live with Sam, who persuades her to pose for him even though she is weak. Sam seemly exploits Glory for gain, but he learns something about himself in the process and ultimately triumphs over adversity.

The adolescent Mary in Innocence is fighting a battle for survival too. She discovers she is unable to experience emotions that girls of her age are expected to feel. Because she is beautiful, men are attracted to her. She drifts in and out of marriage and wanders aimlessly, getting involved with people who use her without giving her anything in return.

In her diary, Mary depersonalizes the people who exploit her, which enables her to talk objectively about profound matters. Finally, she decides that she must escape the realities of her existence. She gets on a bus that will take her to a place where she can complete her diary.
