The Learned Owl Book Shop welcomes Ohio author Barbara Lyons on Saturday, August 12th, from 1 to 3 p.m. She has written the first of a seven book series entitled “Out of the Depths: The Jonson Chronicles”. The book is about a soldier who returns home from the war in Afghanistan after being tortured. His wife must cope with the side effects of her husband’s trauma; suffering from PTSD, his violent outbursts may cause an end to their marriage. Although there are spiritual elements to the story, the author calls it a “straight-up romance full of grit, laughter, pathos, and hope.”
Ms. Lyons is a resident of Alliance, Ohio, and is an administrative assistant at the University of Mount Union. She works with several departments, including English, History, Political Science, and International Studies. She has worked at the University for 16 years, but her passion has always been writing.
