Grandma's Bones - Resilience - The Sequel: A Collection of Short Stories, a new book by Sylvia R. Moore, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Failure to remember our past mistakes may lead us to repeat them as history repeats itself over time. Resilience attempts to capture today's most striking events and contrast them with historical events that may not have been recorded in our history books. By recounting challenges of history and of her own past, author Sylvia R. Moore hopes to inspire her immediate circle of loved ones in years to come.

Resilience is the second in a series of planned novels to be created around personal testimonies, reflections, and the author's life experiences as well as the lives characterized in the original Grandma's Bones novel. A firm believer in God, the author also includes faith-based and inspirational insights for encouragement throughout the novel.
