Fly Away Home

Fly Away Home by Dave Cenker

Claire Perkins struggles with her past, even as a thirty-eight-year-old woman. While attending her abusive mother’s funeral in the town where she grew up, Claire discovers a deeper emotional scar that challenges her definition of home. No longer willing to put on a façade, buried pain triggers Claire’s only logical choice: escape to a quiet place, somewhere far away from the risk of any further disappointment and heartache.

Pigeon Grove appears to be a sleepy southern locale in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. But there’s a unique and underlying charm to this small town that has other plans for those looking to slip into the silence of a solitary life. The close-knit community guides Claire along a different path, one that encourages her deep-seated need to connect with others.

It’s never too late to come home.
