Odd Road Out

A New England adventure and love story
in which everything wrong goes right!

by Betty Hampel

Odd Road Out: Samantha Smith would run to the Maine Coast. Even The Press would never find this wheelchair-bound heiress, her blonde hair now dyed black. ‘Smith' seemed somehow appropriate as hadn't she become a sort of ‘Jane Doe' who must seek  out her own identity, make her own decisions? However nothing was to prepare her for the abrupt appearances of Charles Martin . . . and all that he would bring with him . . . a dog that smiled . . . kindness sweeter than any she had ever known . . and a future that in her wildest dreams she might never have imagined. An adult fairy tale in which everything wrong goes right.         74 pages
