D. C. Townsend, who knows very well how fact is intricately entwined with fiction, D.C. Townsend has completed a new book “Bonnie Duffy’s Journey”: an exciting coming-of-age story told in the vein of classic adventure stories and with a lovable, plucky little Dickensian girl for a main character.

Author Townsend, aware of the sometimes dangerous escapism and misguidance of fiction, is no stranger to its life-changing power, and shows through Bonnie how much of a refuge it can be for a twelve-year-old runaway in need of such guidance: “Bonnie had a map, some canned goods, matches, a pocket knife, a water canteen, needles and thread, and best of all, some boy’s clothes. The store had some books for sale; some were used. Bonnie had time to read the used books, it was the only good thing about the mercantile. Bonnie liked to read Mark Twain, Stevenson, Cooper, and the Wild West stories. In these pages, Bonnie found encouragement, hope, and inspiration. A determination to persevere consumed Bonnie.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, D. C. Townsend’s new book reads like an engaging rendition of the classic nineteenth-century adventure stories of such authors as Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson; and to further bring Bonnie’s world to life, the novel includes black-and-white photographs of the historical landscapes, machinery, and even notable personages the young heroine encounters on her journey.

Readers who wish to experience this imaginative work can purchase “Bonnie Duffy’s Journey” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
