Plano, TX—May 12, 2015 Queen’s Ferry Press, an independent publisher providing a venue for fine literary fiction, announced it will publish Kathleen Hughes’ novel You Can Walk Home.
You Can Walk Home is the story of a family in a small coastal Rhode Island town. During a fight on a snowy drive home from school one evening, the mother orders her 16-year-old daughter out of the car to walk the last mile. This punishment does not produce the desired effect. Told from the perspective of the younger sister, who is in the car that night and is her sister’s confidante, and from the mother, You Can Walk Home is a story about girls and women, parents and children, faith, and how much we can and cannot hold on to the ones we love. You Can Walk Home will release in June, 2017.
