Chancy Deel has always been left by the ones who she trusted and loved the most, never having a happy life. Without much thought to her next action, Chancy felt is was her time to leave. So she hitched her way to Wenonah, Oklahoma. When arriving, the treacherous weather sets the scene to how Chancy's first day in Wenonah will be like. With no shelter and no one to turn to, Chancy wishes she would have put some thought into running away.

Max, never a healthy person, knew that his wife would surely outlive him. Sadly, this wasn't the case, since his wife, Hanna, had passed away because of cancer. He missed everything about her, from her bossiness to how she was so strong willed. Depressed and living with his dog, Max just didn't know why his life turned out like this.

Chancy and Max, from two different generations with two distinctive attitudes, find themselves in the same boat -- and will soon be in the same home.

At first, Max's decision to let Chancy stay with him was for him to be able to keep the home he and his wife shared a life in. But, soon he will discover that this decision will benefit the both of them, since they each now have someone to help them cope.

Their strong personalities will clash, a strong bond will overcome them, and a new life for each of them will blossom.

Heartwarming and sentimental, PAPER HEARTS will leave a wonderful impression on those who are willing to enter the lives of two vulnerable and lovable characters. Debrah Williamson is a storyteller who can make her readers feel the emotions that these characters are going through. A lovely novel that should be shared and passed down.

Fifteen years old Chancy Deel left her abusive mother back in Pittsburgh to head west with no place in mind except to escape from hell. In Oklahoma Chancy meets octogenarian Max Boyle after sleeping overnight in his car. Meanwhile Social Services wants Max to move into an assisted living facility. He refuses as he has a home. When the SS threatens to make him move, he offers Chancy a deal she can stay at his home as a ¿friend of the family.------------------ The relationship proves terrific for both of them as they respect one another. He nurtures her in a safe stable environment and she provides him with companionship that he has not had since his wife died.-------------- PAPER HEARTS is a delightful poignant tale that emphasizes the human need for companionship as two people forge a grandfatherly-granddaughter relationship between them that is more than just good for them it is needed by each of them to save their life. Mindful of the Burns-Shields movie Just You and Me Kid, but much more serious, the teen and the geriatric are fully developed protagonists with the age gap showcasing their differing issues. Fans of a deep well written friendship drama will appreciate this fine buddy tale as everybody needs somebody they can trust to nurture and protect their heart.--------------- Harriet Klausner
