Ivory and Ink By Stacy Graven Cover Image


It's 1964.

Evie Jernig, a Welsh botanist with stationery and a heart broken by royalty at a fountain.

Max Dash McGuire, a sleep-deprived medical student at Oxford with a God-given intellect who finds joy in lemon drops and an inkwell despite circumstance.

As happenstance would have it, a colleague of Evie's, Dr. Feldane, encourages Evie to attend Oxford for a doctorate that could heal her heart with knowledge overflowing. Yet she is left with a late ferry, wrong room number, a garden, lots of walnuts, telephone booths, and a twelve-year-old postal carrier in an England fruit market with more wisdom than she imagined.

"One of those yet to be found," he says, as he walks away into the crowd.

Will Evie find what she is looking for? Will Max?

Through journal entries, a diner, letters, forty-one months, class, a housekeeper with no last name, an artistic grandmother, an uncle who survived polio, and students with an aptitude for studying and laughter, will they come together as they look to God for help? Or will they be torn apart under pressure?

Dreams, faith, friendships, records, and a garden may be just what the doctor ordered.
