A LOVELY, INDECENT DEPARTURE: The story of a parental kidnapping which reads, according to one reviewer, like “a literary novel, a thriller, a mystery all wrapped up in one package!”
This intriguing and emotionally-charged drama will be free worldwide in the Kindle Store on Wednesday, Sep 26.
A LOVELY, INDECENT DEPARTURE tells the story of five-year-old young Oliver Meade, a boy caught in the middle of two warring parents. On the one hand is his mother, Anna Miller, who wants only to raise her son. When a district court awards custody of him to his father, she abducts him and flees to Italy where with her family’s help they disappear into the fabric of her native homeland.
Standing in her way is Evan Meade, the boy’s guileful and mean-spirited father, who hires a private investigator when the efforts of the embattled local sheriff, Monroe Rossi, fail to track them down. But as the investigation draws them all closer to Anna, Evan’s true nature betrays itself and the question of what’s in the child’s best interest becomes not so clear anymore.
“A ringside seat to a drama whose tensions are racheted higher and higher as we near the denouement…An impressive debut.”—Founder of Carolina Wren Press
"A fast-paced but thorough look into the nature of divorce and its effects on parents and children, with some great descriptions of Italy, which all combine in a well-balanced novel and deserving winner of an Emerging Artist Grant for Literature."—The Unbound Underground
“...a masterful debut.”—Booksie’s Blog
