Owensboro, Kentucky Author Publishes Novel

By: PR Leap
( The Locked Trunk, a new book by Judy Elizabeth Busby, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Living a sheltered, shy life, Linda has only two friends through the years: Jared, her high school crush and, later in life, Bonnie, a member of the Mormon church.

Despite the closeness she feels for young Jared, he breaks her heart by marrying another girl, no explanation, nothing. In a rebound relationship, Linda grows close to Russell, marries him, and they raise their daughter, Amber.

The Locked Trunk holds two love stories and a devasting secret, following Linda as she navigates a broken heart, a comforted heart, and new beginnings with the possibility of rebirth in a new love and faith.
