Almost Home

A Novel

Patrick, his sister, and his mother have come to Paradise Valley, Arizona, in the bitter aftermath of his father's suicide. As his mother turns to alcohol for solace and his sister finds companionship in the town's wild crowd, Patrick spends lonely days in school and works the graveyard shift at a local gas station. His isolation ends with the arrival of Elizabeth, a talented musician with family problems of her own. The depth of their feelings emerges when a drug-dealing co-worker involves Patrick in a scheme that not only tests his courage but his loyalty -- to his family, to the memory of his father, and to Elizabeth. Almost Home is an engaging exploration of the relationships between coincidence and providence, betrayal and forgiveness, love and salvation.
