Win 'When She Flew' by Jennifer Shortridge!
“Mesmerized” by the true story of a war veteran and his twelve-year-old daughter who, after going undetected for years, were discovered living in a densely wooded Portland park, Shortridge—ever the novelist—empathized strongly with those involved, from the father and child to those who found and then became involved in their lives.
Soon a character emerged, one that captured the conflicting emotions and responsibilities of those obligated to carry out specific actions, even when it goes against their instincts.
Shortridge’s protagonist, Oregon police officer Jessica Villareal is at a crossroads in her life. She thrives in her profession, yet her personal life is falling apart. Her inflexible belief in rules and overprotective nature have ruined her marriage and damaged her relationship, and now she’s wondering if she’s made all the wrong choices.
At this critical juncture, Jess meets thirteen-year-old Lindy who has been living in the woods with her father. Though the girl is smart, healthy and happy under his care, authorities are threatening to separate them.
By presenting the voices of both woman and child, Shortridge manages to explore the bravery and internal struggle of Jess as well as Lindy’s reactions to the turmoil and upheaval rocking her world.
