My debut novel

Vi Masters wonders…

Can you come home again?

It’s not like she wants to come back. Not when she ran from there ten years ago and the life she’s lived since.  But she can’t say no this time.

So how bad can three days be?

Her father and stepmother wonder too, fearing her visit will disrupt what each holds most dear. It’s no ride on a pink duck for Vi, especially when she finds out Nate Barlow has moved back to town. Vi wonders…

Can you survive treacherous hope?

Where is Freedom, Iowa?

Come Back takes place in the small town of Freedom, Iowa.  So where is Freedom? Beats me! I made it up!
