ENUMCLAW, Wash., Dec. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- A major crises is looming and the possibilities are frightening, but the faded, handwritten words on the brittle pages in Maddie's lap may come to her rescue. A forward-thinking young woman, Maddie is very proud of her multi-racial heritage but doesn't want to be tied to her past--black or white. She finds, however, that the lessons and wisdom of the past will be crucial for her to be able to face the future in C. E. Edmonson's young adult novel, "Golden's Rule."

C. E. Edmonson's heroine, Maddie Bergamo, has it all. She's cute, smart, athletic, and she has terrific parents and true friends. But real life interrupts her dreams for Olympic basketball glory and an Ivy League sports scholarship. Fourteen-year-old Maddie is diagnosed with a brain tumor. In the midst of the maelstrom brought on by this life-changing medical crisis, Maddie receives a family treasure--her
great-great-great-grandmother's memoir recollecting her life as a slave in the mid-1800s. Drawing inspiration from these precious words, Maddie finds the strength to face her new reality.

Award-winning writer of Western novels, C. E. Edmonson now concentrates on a story he dedicated to his own daughters. Focusing on what's really important in life rather than material things and outward appearances is the message of this powerful book. Captivating and genuine, "Golden's Rule" is "recounted in a convincing dialect and features scenes of real, emotional power"
(Publishers Weekly).

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
