Lindy grew up in Lupine, Colorado, the only daughter of the only black family in the entire town. Her younger brother left this small town on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains as soon as he could enlist in the military and hasn’t been seen since. Their parents divorced that same year and Lindy moved to Denver with her mom to attend college.
Lindy is married now and lives in South Carolina. She works as a librarian for a small private school and hates her boss. She hates being married. She hates her life.
So what brings Lindy back to Lupine, Colorado?
And why would she stay even a minute longer than she has to?
And what is in those boxes she came for anyway?
And why would John Cairn leave them to Lindy, of all people?
Lindy is the main character in the novel I’m working on. I’ve been trying to figure out her story for over three years now. I wrote it once but didn’t think I’d captured the essence of Lindy, or her story. I’m writing it again and I think I like it this time.
Lindy is hoping to find answers in Lupine, Colorado. But the people in Lupine, Colorado, aren’t thrilled that she’s back. She feels like a leaf floating in a pond, not knowing where she is going, or even where she has been.
