Being home for the holidays is something Janet and Michael Weaver cherish. That is why the Weaver's are donating half of author royalties from their book, “The Apology,” to The Road Home. The Salt Lake based charity will receive the portion of royalties from book sales from November until Christmas.
“The Apology” is the story of Martha Day, a recent widow, who wants to reconnect with her three children. However, her son, Bill, faces his own struggles; her daughter Nellie has a secret she cannot share; and although her youngest daughter Charlotte lives nearby, she is just too busy with her own life. Taking control of the situation, Martha devises a plan to have her children spend the holidays with her. As each child receives an invitation, they must decide to overlook past grievances and move forward to a better future.
The Weaver's want everyone to have a place to call home this holiday season and are helping in more than one way. As Michael put it, “A book, a painting, or any other artistic endeavor is really a gift to others. Why not make it a financial gift as well.”
The Road Home will be hosting the 16th Annual Holiday Broadcast on December 21st and 22nd and have invited the Weaver's to take part by selling their books at the event. You can find more information about the event at 16th Annual Holiday Broadcast.
