About June Bug:
“Anne Lamott said that ‘good writing is about telling the truth.’ Chris Fabry has done this. Beautifully. June Bug is masterful. An honest story that dove deep inside me and lingered long after I turned the last page.” —Charles Martin, Christy award-winning author of Where the River Ends
“From the moment I read the first chapter, I couldn’t put this book down. A story carved out of real life dynamics, June Bug captures the heart. I highly recommend it.” —Gary Chapman, Ph.D., author of The Five Love Languages and Love As a Way of Life
For as long as she can remember, June Bug and her father have traveled the back roads of the country in their beat-up RV, spending many nights parked at Walmart. One day, as she walks past the greeter at the front of the store, her eyes are drawn to the pictures of missing children, where she is shocked to see herself.
This discovery begins a quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks of, and ultimately herself. But when her father’s past catches up with them, forces beyond his control draw them back to Dogwood, West Virginia, down a winding path that will change their lives forever.
