Overview

When Patty Went Away is a family drama set in the mid 1970s. It plays out in a remote farming community in the Northwest when rebellious and nasty fifteen-year-old Patty Pugh disappears.


Jack McIntyre, a quiet farmer and his beloved daughter, seem to be the only ones who care. No one looks for the girl, yet Jack cannot let her go, and a search will require him to rise against his own wife and against the customs and traditions of his community. In a quest reminiscent of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Jack sets out on an uncertain journey which lands him in the underbelly of Montreal, where he encounters a world he could never imagine.

Title: When Patty Went Away Author: Jeannie Burt Published: Muskrat Press, LLC. Paperback Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Review: "When Patty Went Away" by Jeannie Burt was some 'family drama set in the '70's being told from a male POV. This story has a good plot with a mystery that will bring out some deep emotions. The read was of a wheat farmer family (Jack McIntyre) from Walla Walla Valley of northeast Oregon, who was really having a hard time surviving and the young girl who had run away to Montreal. Now, I know you are probably wondering how these two comes together but the author really does a good job with each chapter and it will connect so well to each other that you will find it hard to put down till the end. This author's description given of this eastern Oregon region was really so well done of this interesting of this farm life. Be ready for a intriguing, suspenseful read where you will find the characters so very believable such as Jack, Molly (his wife), Edie (the daughter), and Patty Pugh (Edie's friend). You will find that each one of the characters have there own story. From the story we will find that a young girl(Patty) has disappeared under 'sinister circumstances.' Why is it that it seemed no one seems to care and then their is Jack who feels that he must go look for her and bring her back home? What all with happen as "Jack set out on an uncertain journey which lands him in the underbelly of Montreal, where he encounters a world he could never imagine." "When Patty went away and there was nobody to look for her, I finally saw that the world's going somewhere I don't understand, somewhere I don't want it to go, somewhere I can't hold on to." This says it all and to fully understand this quote and so much more you must pick up "When Patty Went Away" to see how this author will bring it all out to the reader. Would I recommend this novel? Yes!
