August 18, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsPaternal Poise, a new book by Tonya Lockhart, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
Sequoya and recently-retired Maurice begin their journey where Dream Divine left off: on a plane to London. With Maurice funding a world trip, he and his daughter spend weeks in various cities, learning the culture and cuisines so Sequoya can develop a menu for the eatery she plans to open.
Putting business first and her passions second, Sequoya overextends herself by starting a new job and a new relationship while on this world tour. During their travels, both father and daughter are tested in their love lives, hard conversations are had, and tragedy strikes. A miscarriage, a surprise wedding, and a familial rift are just a few of the challenges that lie ahead.
In the end, it takes a new life coming into the world to help the adults learn to be better.
