Train Tracks follows the emotional turmoil of two, young people, Billy and Grace. They emerge from opposite social structures and, like all young people, try to navigate the unpredictable stresses of growing up. Their lives are drawn together through an unlikely set of circumstances. The relationship is torn apart by an unexpected event that shreds their trust and exposes the dark side in each of them. Their worlds spiral out of control. The reader is taken on an emotional journey that rattles him/her into wanting to reach into the pages and shake the characters to their senses, to seek answers, and to calm their chaos. The story takes place in the south but could be a scenario in any region, any state, any city or any home where misunderstanding, doubt, and fear lurk in the shadows of people's minds. This book is a page-turner with stories within a story. Common sense is sometimes abandoned when the heart is obliterated by a loved one. Will the characters be able to feel their way to reason when their nerves are stripped to the core?
