Please join Parnassus Books for the book launch of local author Helene Dunbar's debut young adult novel, These Gentle Wounds. The evening will include a discussion and signing by the author.Five years after an unspeakable tragedy, Gordie Allen is living with his half-brother Kevin, the only person who can protect Gordie at school and keep him focused on getting his life back on track. But just when it seems like things are becoming normal, Gordie's biological father comes back into the picture, demanding a place in his life. Now there's nothing to stop Gordie from falling into a tailspin that could cost him everything--including his relationship with Sarah, the first girl he's ever trusted. With his world spinning out ofcontrol, the only one who can help Gordie is himself . . . if he can find the strength to confront the past and take back his future. Helene Dunbar usually writes features about fiddles and accordions, but she's also written about court cases, theater, and Native American Indian tribes. She's lived in two countries, six states, and currently lives in Nashville with her husband, two cats, and the world's friendliest golden retriever.
