Decoupage, A Novel

Maybe the secret was in the flight after all. Maybe not just in the flying off, but in the rise from the earth. In the unison. 

Deep in the heart of Alabama young Caroline grieves the only way she knows how – running away from the pain. Her dear father gone, her mid-wife mother Jane in love with a kind woman, Caroline ejects Jane from her life and breaks with her best friends. Two decades later, sick and solitary, Caroline learns of Jane’s death.

At the funeral, Caroline meets Imogen, the prescient, fairy-like child of her old friend Del. Finding new life in Imogen, Caroline reconnects with her estranged friends and family.  But Caroline’s illness is terminal. Will she confront the trauma of her past and find forgiveness and love before it’s too late?
