wade rouse (aka viola shipman)
Viola Shipman is the pen name of Wade Rouse, a popular, award-winning memoirist. Rouse chose his grandmother’s name to honor the woman whose heirlooms and family stories inspire his fiction. To date, his beloved novels, The Charm Bracelet and The Hope Chest, have been translated into over a dozen languages and become international best-sellers.
In Rouse’s latest, The Recipe Box, another treasured family heirloom serves as a reminder of how precious family is, and the importance of preserving family memories.
