Yearnings for the Unattainable
By: L.L. Eadie
About the Book
Eadie’s gift for understanding the adolescent heart is on full display … in this delicious witch’s brew of southern gothic, paranormal romance and realistic contemporary. The town of Wiregrass is a character in itself with its whispers, horrors and secrets. And at the heart of it all is Gentry, the newcomer, who innocently looks for love, but instead is drawn into a portal that nearly takes her life.
-Joyce Sweeney on Yearning for the Unattainable
Eadie’s work stands out from the usual teen novel. Written in a light, easy style Tuesday’s story of emotional emancipation is one that any teenager can appreciate.
-Kirkus Reviews on Mistaken Identity
A love story mixed with tragedy and humor. Secrets and broken promises from the author’s youth (and from all teenagers’ lives) prompted Eadie to write this story. She hopes her readers will see themselves in her characters and be able to feel their emotions—recognize them—relate to them—laugh and cry with them.
