Author Event - The Buried Book Book by D. M. Pulley

When Althea Leary abandons her nine-year-old son, Jasper, he’s left on his uncle’s farm with nothing but a change of clothes and a Bible. It’s 1952, and Jasper isn’t allowed to ask questions or make a fuss. No one knows where his mother went or whether she’s coming back. Desperate to see her again, he must take matters into his own hands. From the farm, he embarks on a treacherous search that will take him to the squalid hideaways of Detroit and back again. As he’s drawn deeper into an adult world of corruption, scandal and murder, Jasper uncovers the shocking past still chasing his mother—and now it’s chasing him too. Before she started writing, Pulley worked as a professional engineer specializing in the rehabilitation of historic structures and forensic investigations of building failures. Pulley inspected buildings and managed rehabilitation projects in Cleveland for over ten years. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
