VICTOR is a story of homesickness, surprise friendships, and learning that your place in this world is often more important than you thought.
Eleven-year-old Ardith is forced to leave her homeland of Sweden when her father is stationed as king over conquered Estonia.
At the start, Ardith is bitterly homesick. Later she starts to feel at home at the stables when she meets the new foal with a silver mane, whom she names Victor. Ardith sets her mind on proving she knows Victor’s destiny. Adventures follow, including hilarious mishaps with the stable boy, Peeter; offending old ministers; and assaults from a cruel villain.
Ardith faces devastating opposition as she endeavors her quest, simply because she is a girl. What begins as her dream for another becomes Ardith’s discovery of her own profound impact in this strange, new land.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In her childhood, running through the wheat fields of Southern California, Tam pretended, with a most fervent imagination, she was the Bionic Woman. She found magic kingdoms in pine groves and sought wisdom from ancient elm trees. After elementary school, she rushed home to sit and play among her playmates: young piglets. A baby sister finally arrived. Sister grew up as Wonder Woman, to run alongside Bionic Tam.
Tam grew older (though probably forgot to grow up), got married, and raised three beautiful people. And as a school teacher in California and Tennessee, Tam wrote curriculum for churches and schools. As a drama teacher, in Tennessee, she wrote and directed plays for middle schoolers; being an expert at pretending.
Currently, Tam’s first novel, VICTOR is a fresh release and available on Amazon now. The sequel to VICTOR, with the working title, ARDITH, is in production.
Tami also writes free articles on her blog that center around the endeavor to help children (and adults) find their personal strengths and gain hope in the knowledge of their own important role in this world (aka: our superpowers).
Tami resides in Nashville TN.
