A Book Synopsis I think I Can Live With…

synopsis1As I embark on writing Chapter 5 of my novel, When it Comes in Threes, it occurs to me that I haven’t written a synopsis yet. I think I can live with this one:

Barley is a superstitious fourteen-year-old girl raised in a trailer park and living well below the poverty line in Southern Oklahoma. She’s completely beguiled by her father whom she also idolizes, but the only trouble is, he’s a drunk adulterer and a wife beater who is also physically abusive to her and her older sister, Bartlett. Barley’s skewed view of the male role model in her life alters her relationships with the women in her life, from her verbally abusive mother, to her stubborn, reckless sister. Her relationship with her younger brother is also challenged and wrought with jealousy. When Barley eventually leaves her dysfunctional home and enters the foster care system, she winds up encountering a funny family man who sets her straight on her distorted views on life, changing her perceptions of love, family and home.
