Every small town has its challenges; such is their nature. But for the seemingly good people of the town of Felton, in the heart of Polk County, danger seems to lurk around every corner these days for those who just happen to be young.
The first incident arrived amid the blissful sights and smells of the Polk County Fair. The summer revelry would all come to a sudden and tragic end when a rollercoaster car launches from its tracks and into the crowd. Two girls are killed and a young man is left fighting for his life. But how and why this accident happened will shock readers as much as it shocks the residents of Felton.
And still, in the way only close-knit communities can, the people of Felton rally around the injured and comfort those who loved the lost. As if torn from the canvas of a Norman Rockwell painting, Mary Duncan weaves a story of a town determined to heal, to walk hand-in-hand into the mire, and come out clean on the other side.
But for the citizens of Felton, it would appear Evil has not yet called retreat.
“Written for the young adult reader, Mary Duncan’s debut novel is a rich tale of love struggling to survive against the strongest odds,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing. “She has a compelling story readers will be drawn to, set against a backdrop so familiar that readers won’t be able to help being drawn in.”
