“Please Give” takes place in Washington, D.C. It tells the story of 28-year-old Beth Harmon, who has made her professional home at the anti-hunger nonprofit Safety Net following an extended job hunt. When Beth is offered a larger role in Safety Net’s biggest fundraiser of the year, she dives headfirst into the new challenge. But such a dive means working against her own anxieties. As Beth navigates challenges both in and out of the office, she must confront the prospect of losing predictable constants in her life — and must decide which ones she wants to save, and which are worth walking away from.

“Please Give” has come a long way from my original idea that came to me last fall. It’s been a long, eye-opening, and enjoyable process. I’m excited to share the book with all of you, and hope you like it! I also hope you’ll provide an honest review after you’ve read it.
