Ghellow Road (Paperback)
Ghellow Road is a literary diary of a young girl's journey through the tangled labyrinth that is her life. Theresa's story begins in a large Midwestern city, where her heart is full of joy and wonder, and the world is hers to receive without consequence. As time passes, merciless forces begin to shape her existence, no matter how carefully her father colors the empty spaces of her world. After a series of tragic events, Theresa and her family seek refuge in a small Minnesota town nestled near the shores of Rainy Lake. While riding the ups and downs of adolescence, she creates a new life for herself there. Yet through it all, her mother remains forever lost in the prison of her own mind and forever lost to Theresa. The young girl feels as though she's leading a double life, one that no one else could possibly understand. She begins to peer at the world as if looking through a thick, black veil, never certain which pieces are illusion and which are not. Yet, in the end, she manages to survive through sheer determination, a bit of luck and the kindness of the beloved village she calls Home.
