Just Another Sunday Is Anything but Ordinary

Set against the backdrop of the turbulent late 1960s and early 1970s, Just Another Sunday is inspired by actual events and follows Lia Benedict, a teenager growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey.

In the spring of 1968, Lia is 15 years old when her Italian-American family decides to leave Brooklyn for their dream home in the suburbs. But Lia is reluctant to pull up roots and go anywhere, especially to some godforsaken Jersey town. "I would rather thrive in the grime of New York than be plucked from my roots and transplanted in Nowheresland, just to wither away and die. I swear this is the kiss of death."

Her father, Frank Benedict, has worked hard to afford his own home for his wife, Marie, and five children after years of renting in Brooklyn. With the recent marriage of their eldest daughter, and visions of grandchildren in their future, new life in suburbia couldn't be more promising. But their dream home quickly becomes a living nightmare, and the family's move will prove to be the last they will ever make as an intact family of seven.

Just Another Sunday is a compelling five-year snapshot of one woman's life, taking us through teenage angst and rites of passage, new love and broken hearts, friendships and betrayal, triumph and tragedy, and one family's struggle to cope with the inconceivable.

You will search your soul and ponder Life's most provocative questions as you experience the unforgettable conclusion to Just Another Sunday.

Here's what

Fans are saying


I enjoyed this book tremendously, as it brought back my own memories of growing up in the 60's. Also the heart ache of making friends in school, then having to move. And yes, the pain of finding true love. Don't want to give too much away, but enjoyed how the music was interwoven within the story as well.

I truly could relate to the authors life.

Elizabeth Good's first novel is an embracing story, which takes you back a few generations to the tumultuous teenage years of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Through her well developed characters, she exposes the complexities of those coming of age years and how the influences of nature, nurture and challenging circumstances affect the choices one makes, and in turn, the direction life takes.

Just Another Sunday is a most enjoyable Sunday read and a wonderful walk down memory lane.
