Thriller | Mystery


In 1958 Detroit, on Alder Avenue, neighbors struggle to care for neighbors amid a city ripe with conflicts that threaten their peaceful street.

Grace, Alder's only expectant mother, eagerly awaits her first born. Best friend Julia prepares to welcome twin nieces. And Malina sets the tone with her stylish dresses, tasteful home, and ironfisted stewardship of St. Alban's bake sale.

Life erupts when childlike Elizabeth disappears while in the care of Grace and Julia. All the ladies fear the recent murder of a black woman at the factory on Willingham Avenue where their husbands work may warn of what has become of Elizabeth, and they worry what is yet to become of Julia—the last to see Elizabeth alive.

The men mount an around–the–clock search, leaving their families vulnerable to sinister elements hidden in plain sight. Only Grace knows what happened, but her mother warns her not to tell. "No man wants to know this about his wife." Ashamed that her silence puts loved ones in harm's way, Grace gravitates toward the women of Willingham Avenue, who recognize her suffering as their own. Through their acceptance, Grace conquers her fear and dares to act.

On Alder Avenue, vicious secrets bind friends, neighbors, and spouses. For the wicked among them, the walk home will be long.

An interesting time and place you decided to set this book.
And Ben, well, he sounds like my son when I brought a little sister home.

I grew up in Detroit, so I'm very anxious to read your book!! You couldn't have picked a better area, or in this case, topic to write about, because there is always something going on there!! As for the puppy, after a few days, the two of them are going to be inseparable!! My dog of 12 years passed away almost 3 years ago, and I miss her terribly!! I now have 2 kittens to take her place, and they came from the same litter - in fact, I held one of them in my hand, moments after it was born!! They bring a lot of life to our household, and I don't know what I'd do without them, even though they can be a handful at times!! I would have loved to have gotten another dog, but they're too expensive to keep nowadays. Perhaps sometime in the future, I'll be able to get another one, but for now, these kittens are just the ticket for me!! Congratulations on your book!! I'm sure it will do just fine. A lot of people are interested in books on Detroit!!

I love dogs but have cats at present and they have their own territories and relationships too!
