Weyland's Latest Looks At Overcoming Differences Through Unconditional Love

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Jennifer Hobbs and Ashley Bailey couldn't be more opposite. Jennifer runs with the cowboys at school, talks tough with a rebellious spirit and hates going to church. Ashley is a model daughter and student with a perky personality, good looks and cheerful attitude. But there's a secret that binds them together -- a secret from which both will learn about the things that matter most in life.

Against this background, acclaimed author Jack Weyland has penned his newest novel, Ashley and Jen (Bookcraft, $16.95). In this, is 23rd novel, Weyland explores once again the fun and frustration that are part of growing up while at the same time illustrating a secretive and destructive behavior that plagues a surprisingly large number of young women -- bulimia. In his usual compelling style, Weyland shows us how the compulsion threatens the lives of its victims, both physically and emotionally.

Ashley and Jen illustrates the power of friendship and how the strength of family and friends can help us overcome differences and difficulties.
