About THE HANDBOOK FOR LIGHTNING STRIKE SURVIVORS:
This fiction debut is the story of Becca Burke and Buckley R. Pitank, two lost souls separated by time and place but brought together by the fierce inevitability of destiny. While Becca grows up believing in magic and running after the father who is always leaving her behind in North Carolina, Buckley is busy being beaten into the red dirt of Arkansas by bullies and pining for a life where he doesn’t stand out. In a strange twist of fate, both are touched by lightning, and though they’ve never met, their lives become intertwined as they try to understand what it means to be singled out by the heavens. When they finally come together one stormy night, their lives are irrevocably altered in a scene of electrifying power.
Told in alternating threads separated by excerpts from The Handbook for Lightning Strike Survivors, this is a hopeful tale that reassures us that even the hardest times are just obstacles we must overcome in order to get to the place where we’re supposed to be.
