New Fiction Portrays Gripping Life Story

If you could reinvent your life, how would you do it? In her new book releasing this month, “What About the Children?” Georgia author Alice Heath-Gladden explores a fictionalized life story, uncovering wounds so deep that only she could go there.

After both parents die within a few months of each other, Alisha Copper and her three brothers are summarily separated and placed in orphanages. How could these siblings, so geographically separated, ever be reunited? The story's twists and turns are mixed with tragedy after tragedy, all overcome by the unlikely advantage of the Copper Children's beginning.

Mary Ball, of Alexandria, Virginia, says, “This poignant and deeply moving story of orphans spoke to me. Their separation at an early age, and Alisha's determination and pursuit of music, paralleled with her brothers' struggles and triumphs will stay with you long after you've finished their story. Its authenticity will touch your heart as it takes you into the lives of the amazing people who enter their lives to nurture and to heal. I loved this book.”

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available at any bookstore nationwide or can be ordered through the publisher at or by visiting, or This is also an eLIVE title, meaning each copy contains a code redeemable for a free audio version from eLIVE – Listen, Imagine, View, and Experience!
