Desirée had felt abandoned all her life, but when her adoptive parents sold their prairie farm, the place where all Desirée’s earliest memories had been formed, and moved overseas without her, she knew she had been abandoned for certain.
Only eighteen, without a passport, with very little money in the bank, no job and nowhere to live, she took a last look at the hulk of the old station-wagon in the north field, lifted her backpack, and began walking toward the road, hoping to hitch a ride to...somewhere.
In this, her fifteenth novel, Brianna Jeffreys examines the heart and mind of a bewildered girl whose world has inexplicably crashed around her shoulders, as well as the motives of the parents—the second set of parents, from Desirée’s perspective—who had abandoned her.
Find out how she coped, and managed to overcome. “Somewhere” — in a bookstore near you, now.
