Overview

“An engagingly told novel that draws you in immediately…

Book clubs take note: make this your next selection.”

—Lori Stacy, Editor, Celebrated Living Magazine

A coming-of-age novel of a different sort, this heartbreakingly tender story of love and hope shows us all that it is never too late for a second chance. Pogue Whithouse, an ordinary, extraordinary man, takes a road trip across America in his classic ‘67 Mustang. Hoping to heal memories and reconcile a past filled with life-altering love and loss, Pogue encounters a colorful cast of characters along his way: a spirited woman who rescues horses, a pierced-lipped romantic, a rattlesnake wrangling recluse and, most important, a little girl who loves bullfrogs and baseball.

Pogue’s inspirational journey – across the country and through life – reminds us that the human heart and spirit are forces as unpredictable as they are powerful. Together We Jump is poetic testament to the power of belief and the possibility of redemption at any age.

A deft exploration of the complexity of love and memory that will stay with you long after you turn the final page. McAlpine is an eloquent storyteller who has created a magnificent novel.

—Dallas Woodburn, author of 3 a.m. and three-time Pushcart Prize nominee

“A roller coaster ride through the mind and soul… poetic…McAlpine’s tale is inspirational.”

—Vincent F.A. Golfin, Ph.D., The Los Angeles Review

“Emotionally moving… a riveting plot… a rich history of real-life events (World War II, Japan), Together We Jump is a real treat.

—Denise Turney, author Love Pour Over Me and Off The Shelf talk show host
