Read full description of the books:
In post-Civil War New York City, sixteen-year-old Aislynn Denehy cannot find a job, she has no place to live and no family to help her. Some might think this is a problem; Aislynn believes it s an opportunity, but she has a lot to learn. No formulaic romance, this love story depicts life as it truly was for the thousands of women who went west reaching for a new life. Aislynn s journey begins in a New York City tenement and leads her across the frontier to a Utah mining camp where she must cope with the conflicting intentions of three very different men. Life in the roughshod camp brings small joys and devastating losses. This novel races through authentic experiences involving historical events until it erupts in an unexpected ending. In today s troubled world, Far Away Home will make you believe no matter how many challenges fate sends your way, the human spirit can triumph.
"FAR AWAY HOME is an engaging, memorable love story. I thoroughly enjoyed it." Amy Goodman, award winning syndicated journalist, columnist and author.
"An engrossing story set against the back drop of early America. A page turner of adventure, romance and strong characters who stand up for themselves and their friends despite the costs." Geoff Woodland, author of Ice King, an antislavery novel.

Read information about the authorFollowing graduation from college, I worked in three different mayoral administrations for City of New York. My jobs primarily focused on equal rights and women’s issues. In 1979, I was instrumental in starting the nation’s first Sexual Harassment Prevention and Complaint Program. In the early 80s, I produced a radio show on women’s issues. When I left the City of New York, I counseled abused women and taught political science and history.
In 2011, I published the novel FAR AWAY HOME, about a young woman who left New York City in 1868 to start a new life in Utah. Up to that time, most of my writing focused on professional journals and texts. When I ventured into fiction, I wrote short stories. One received honorable mention in a NOW short story contest and was published in Creative Woman.
The novel began as a chapter for a history book. I conducted my research in the American west for three years; I even drove a covered wagon (check out the Youtube video at www.susandenningauthor.com). When the history book project dissolved, I used my research to form an historical novel.
As a self-published, unknown author, I never imagined anyone would read FAR AWAY HOME. But tens of thousands of readers did. Tantor Media notice its success and released the audiobook version in August 2015.
To my great surprise, many requested the next chapter of Aislynn's story. The sequel, EMBRACE THE WIND, debuted in March 2017. Both books are available at http://amzn.to/2dPQE9c
FAR AWAY HOME and the sequel, EMBRACE THE WIND, are popular book club reads. Book club questions are available on my webpage- www.susandenningauthor.com. I am also available to Skype into book club meetings. Write to me at email@example.com with your request.
