Based on a true story, Lilacs in the Dust Bowl is an inspirational family saga about love and heartache during the Great Depression.
In 1929, when Lukia Mazurets, a Ukrainian peasant farmer, immigrates to Canada with her four children, she has no idea the stock market is about to crash and throw the world into a deep depression. Falling grain prices, the ravages of nature, and unexpected family conflicts threaten to smash her dreams of family unity in a strange land. And when love knocks on her door again, awakening desire she thought was long gone, Lukia has to choose between having a man in her life or the children she’s sacrificed everything for.
Diana Stevan has published three other novels, A Cry From The Deep, a romantic mystery, The Rubber Fence, inspired by her work on a psychiatric ward, and Sunflowers Under Fire, based on her grandmother’s life during wartime in Eastern Europe. This last book was a finalist for the 2019 Whistler Independent Book Awards, a semi-finalist for the 2019 Kindle Book Awards (literary fiction) and received an Honorable Mention in the 2020 Writers Digest Self-Published Book Awards. She lives with her husband on Vancouver Island and West Vancouver, in beautiful British Columbia.
