In honour of her nomination for the 2014 Evergreen™ Award, Janet Hepburn’s Flee, Fly, Flown takes another turn as HCPL’s Book of the Month.
When Lillian and Audrey hatch a plot to escape from Ottawa’s Tranquil Meadows Nursing Home, “borrow” a car, and spend their hastily planned vacation time driving to the west coast, they aren’t fully aware of the challenges ahead. Luckily, they meet an unsuspecting young man, Rayne, who will help them navigate the course. As Lillian and Audrey try to take back control of their lives, Rayne realizes the truth – these women are suffering from dementia, have been without their meds and a man-hunt is underway to locate them. It goes without saying that these funny, brave women will take Rayne – and the reader – on the adventure of a lifetime.
Flee, Fly, Flown by Janet Hepburn is available to reserve at the Haliburton County Public Library. It is a nominee for the 2014 Evergreen™ Award. Janet Hepburn will be a special guest at the Friends of the Haliburton County Public Library’s Lunch and Learn on April 9th at 12 PM at The Community Room in Haliburton.
