In "Denton Place, Tables Turned" we meet Julia Bloom, a young girl who overcomes her tragic past and emerges a productive and influential woman. This inspiring novel, coupled with the companion workbook, "Denton Place, Tables Turned: Letters From the Heart" are two powerful tools which help place you, the reader, on a path towards success and a rewarding, fulfilling life!

How does a woman from a seemingly picture-perfect family find herself entangled in a web of deceit and heartache?
Denton Place, Tables Turned is the story of such a woman. It is the story of the way she overcame multiple struggles including divorce, sigle parenting, and revenge. Denton Place is the story of relationships that at onset looked 'oh so good', but later turned into ashes of despair. It is the story of Julia Bloom whose success in business and the military defies the failure and war in her personal life.

Julia Bloom learns that popularity, good looks, intelligence and coming from a good family are no insurance against dark times in life because of choices made. Even though she played the role of the perfect lady: an outstanding soldier, hard worker, successfully juggling a professional life and duties and a devoted mother to her children - it is not enough.

Finally, circumstances wreak havoc and turn her life upside down. The tables are turned and Julia has to acknowledge that she has spent most of her life living behind a mask. It is only when she accepts Jesus as her personal savior that he gives her wisdom to live stand tall. It has taken time, but now she is complete and unafraid to speak and live by truth.

Julia's story highlights a lengthy journey from sorrow to finally finding peace, joy, patience,faith, and self-control with the Author of Peace, The Almighty God.
