This book encapsulates the vulnerability of our youth in a world full of dangerous predators.

For thousands of years, Greek-tragedies have famed the battle of good versus evil and the hero, who must overcome life’s obstacles in order to make the world right again.

Beginning when a maximum-security prisoner stumbles across a valuable secret that leads him to flee across northern Wisconsin, Linda Florke’s new novel, September Woods, brings Greek-tragedy into the modern world.

Florke intertwines the evil prisoner’s storyline with 15-year-old innocent Stella, who is kidnapped during the outlaws run from the police. Feeling her fear, pain and vulnerability as she is held hostage and abused by the escaped convict, September Woods reveals Stella’s journey of struggle to regain normalcy. Highlighting the unconditional love animals have, Stella’s furry companion aids in her recovery and ultimately leads her to fall in love.

“This book encapsulates the vulnerability of our youth in a world full of dangerous predators,” says Florke. “And it depicts how resilience and strength of the human spirit is key during times of tragedy.”

An enlightening read for women of all ages, this Greek-tragedy depicts the heroine’s journey of strength and how perseverance is the true way of overcoming evil.
