As promised, I have stepped away momentarily from my usual historical fiction and offer a story that has been nagging at me since 9/11.
A LONG WAY HOME is ready for reading.
Here is the blurb:
Meredith Haggerty survives years of her husband’s abuse by harboring a plan to escape when she can make it look as if she died. She grasps her chance at freedom on 9/11 when she survives the fall of the World Trade Center’s North Tower.
Heading to a new life in Mexico, her seatmate on the bus is Father Jacque Richelieu who convinces her to teach English at his community center on the Texas Rio Grande. She finds a home, but she discovers that she has not found herself.
For readers in the Austin area, Book People will feature A LONG WAY HOME at its Author Night on Sunday, May 3 at 5 pm.
I hope to see you there. Mark your calendar, and if I have your email address, I’ll send reminders a few days in advance.
Love and thanks to my granddaughter––artist and art teacher Lori Lockhart––for the cover.
Happy reading and many thanks for your review on Amazon or Goodreads.
