 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 

“In June Bug, Chris Fabry weaves his talent as a storyteller and his heart for the suffering people of this world into a well-told tale of sacrifice and healing, sorrow and hope, and what happens when we remain faithful to those we love. Well-written and bursting with life.” —Lisa Samson, Christy award-winning author of Quaker Summer and The Passion of Mary-Margaret
 
June Bug is a heartwarming tale and a precious reminder that God moves in mysterious ways to create families. June Bug is a heroine you’re not likely to forget.” —Angela Hunt, Christy award-winning author of The Note 2: Taking a Chance on Love
 
“An emotionally riveting novel that readers will not soon forget, June Bug is an endearing story to cherish. Chris Fabry stole the hearts of readers with Dogwood and now his fans will be thrilled to know that June Bug does not disappoint. A fascinating read to the very last sentence, I could not put June Bug down.” —Tina Ann Forkner, author of Ruby Among Us and Rose House
 
From the Back Cover:
 
“I believed everything my daddy told me until I walked into Walmart and saw my picture on a poster. . . .”

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.
