Staff Reviews

Oregon author, Oregon setting for this moving story of two families linked by their truobled teenage daughters' friendship. Heartbreaking issues handled with insight and a clear-eyed view of the passions that drive us when our children are involved. All that and it's a well-written page-turner that at times borders on being a thriller.

— Mary


"When Patty Went Away" is a family drama set in the mid 1970s. It plays out in a remote farming community in the Northwest when rebellious and nasty fifteen-year-old Patty Pugh disappears.
Jack McIntyre, a quiet farmer and his beloved daughter, seem to be the only ones who care. No one looks for the girl, yet Jack cannot let her go, and a search will require him to rise against his own wife and against the customs and traditions of his community. In a quest reminiscent of "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry," Jack sets out on an uncertain journey which lands him in the underbelly of Montreal, where he encounters a world he could never imagine.
