Neelie's Truth


Neelie’s Truth introduces us to the James family and a rural New England life that holds dark secrets and a breathtaking, twisting story. Neelie James, deserted by her father and struggling with a town turned against her family, must find her own path. Even the mysterious stranger who opens the door to a life Neelie has never known, cannot rescue her. Neelie’s decisions will change her life, forever-and will bring the reader to face to face with revenge and preservation. Ultimately, the challenges faced by Neelie are timely in today’s world of retribution and violence. Seldom has this time and place been brought so vividly to life. From Fitzgerald’s poignant descriptions of a tragic farm accident to fiercely led rural lives, she writes with a clear sense of regional honesty. Luminous with prose that brilliantly respects time, place and character, Neelie’s Truth is an unforgettable tour de force.
