On Brigden Road
What is the secret so guarded on Brigden Road? Maarten van Meer has a good life. He's a reader, writer, soapbox preacher, father of six, survivor of war who brilliantly educates himself-always learning, reading, always hungry for more. Who has, with little money, managed the ultimate coup... To spirit his family across the sea to the States, Land of Milk and Honey, America. But underneath every story, you know there is more. Leni van Meer has a good life too. She's a reader, writer, cellogirl-daughter of a poor man who is pretty cool all the same. Once a Dutch girl, she now lives in paradise, where the poppies, hibiscus, and bougainvillea bloom. She is tall, smart, skinny, sweet, shy, with a passel of long red hair that sometimes makes people turn in the street. But you know the drill, you've heard it before... There is always trouble in paradise-isn't there? On Brigden Road is a story of strength and sorrow, a journey, awakening, a poem. It is a love story of home.
