This is where the novel begins.  I pictured a forty something waitress that became pregnant in high school and never made her way out of the small Midwest town. Circumstances and hidden desires combine to inspire her to heal her wounds and face her obstacles.

Her journey takes her to Florida and back again, as she and her close friends take the journey together, Jenny emerges as the hero of her own story and the journey of others.

The novel releases May 9th, available in

paperback and Kindle formats.
