Editor’s Pick in Ocala Star Banner!

Recently, A Bend in the Straight and Narrow was chosen as an Editor’s Pick in the Ocala Star Banner.  An excerpt from the review:

“The pages are rich in detail and rife in the inner-workings of a complicated family. The prose by novice writer Sarah A. Younger, of Merritt Island, is peppered with apt descriptions of true events that colored the lives of her real family members. This was a pioneer family in the truest sense of the word – not only in how they traversed the land, but also in how they survived the intricacies of the inner workings that often tear families apart.”
