Lulie Brannigan is certain her ex is still in jail. But suddenly he keys himself in and refuses to leave, so she and the boys have to go. They run, relocate, even hide, but they can’t shake him. Nate will stop at nothing to get his family back.
When she was eight-years-old, Mary Lynn Roddy was told the family would be moving out of the Village of Nahma. “Oh no, I’m not!” she said. They could never leave that picketed yard, with two apple trees and a strawberry patch. And what about the four little friends she so cherished? Could grown-ups really pull this on their kids? Ah, yes, she found. Days later, as their car wound out of town, Mary Lynn cried and cried. Her mother handed her some folded over paper. “Honey, write down just exactly how you feel!” Once that was completed, the little girl felt ever so much better. After that she wrote. In diaries with tiny keys, in Journals, all her life.
“Someday, I’ll write a novel,” she would say. And, like her favorite childhood character, The Little Red Hen, one day she did.
