The Spaces That Hold You is a tragic and heartwarming story about the life of Levi Strong, a boy who is swept into the most difficult of circumstances.

It is the 1960s in Kelsey, a place left behind by the dustbowl migrants in California.

The underpinnings of racism hold tight to the town, pushing Levi to face the indelible harm of indifference from those like himself, who can blend easily into the fold, as they stand by in silence, while others unfurl their tongues and fists on those they perceive to be different.

Levi’s mother, Katharine, keeps many secrets. Some, Levi gives witness to, but the worst of them will change everything, when he is forced to question all that he has ever known about his mother and himself.

Join Levi on his journey of discovery. This captivating story will leave you pondering the profound spaces that connect us all.
