Lance: The Continuing Journals of Will Barnett
Will Barnett writes: "So, as I told Uncle Sean, Lance just needs somebody to love him. And that somebody is me."
When Lance and Will meet on a windswept ledge on the edge of a desert mountain, neither young man knows the trials they will each face. Lance, the troubled, violet-eyed young man will find the love and support of a family he never had. But more importantly the pure love of a man-for Life. But he must make a heart-wrenching choice: to embrace that love, or take the opportunity of a lifetime, which may well mean giving up his chance at love.
Praise for the first book in "The Continuing Journals of Will Barnett" Uncle Sean:
"Donaghe's magic in crafting this tale was writing Will's journal in the voice of a fourteen year-old The book is so realistic that one wonders what has become of Sean and Will since the box (containing Will's journal) was stowed away in the barn thirty years ago The novel is a natural for high school and public libraries." -John R. Selig, Foreword Magazine
