Giveaway: The Story of Beautiful Girl

It is 1968. Lynnie, a young white woman with a developmental disability, and Homan, an African American deaf man, are locked away in an institution, the School for the Incurable and Feebleminded, and have been left to languish, forgotten. Deeply in love, they escape, and find refuge in the farmhouse of Martha, a retired schoolteacher and widow. But the couple is not alone-Lynnie has just given birth to a baby girl. When the authorities catch up to them that same night, Homan escapes into the darkness, and Lynnie is caught.



I have one copy of this book to giveaway. The contest is open to US and Canada and the winner will be chosen on March 31. Please leave a comment with your email to enter.

  12. That was the way things were in 1960s. My brother is severely autistic and my parents were advised to put in him in an instiution in the 1950s. They didn't do it and now he is in a group home, much happier than he would have been. I would love to read this book.

  18. A captivating, powerful story that also sounds very sad. My hope is that things work out for Lynnie and Homan but it was a different time then. Thank you for hosting this giveaway! I'd love to be entered in it.
