In Leah Ferguson‘s debut novel, All the Difference, Molly Sullivan is a career-driven, 30-year-old Philadelphian who works really hard to keep everything in her life in perfect order. So when Molly discovers that she’s pregnant on New Year’s Eve–the same day her long-term boyfriend proposes marriage–she finds out all too suddenly that even the best plans can be torn apart in an instant.
All the Difference tells the story of what happens after that New Year’s Eve. Molly is faced with a choice, and in alternating chapters, we follow her over the course of the next year to discover how her life changes if she says yes… or if she says no. Molly will discover that while she can’t pick the path she’s been given to walk, it’s up to her to decide how she’ll travel it. It all depends on whether she chooses courage to be her guide.
Ferguson holds a B.A. from West Chester University, where she studied English Literature and Russian, and an M.A. in teaching from Notre Dame of Maryland University. A former editor and teacher, Leah now writes from home while raising a herd of young people. An unabashed fan of Notre Dame football, The Smiths, contemporary fiction and sometimes running, she lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, three children, a dog and a tailless cat.
