Sheldon Graduate Publishes First Book
Shauna L. Nosler, class of 1988, makes first book available on Amazon and dedicates it to former Sheldon English teacher.
With a main character as charming as Harper Lee’s Scout Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, The Caretakers is a novel that will grab your attention from the start. The opening pages paint a rare association between abortion and rape and leaves the reader to ponder the possibility that for some women, the later can be just as violating. As the story unfolds the reader is taken down a non linear path to discovering the secrets behind the various characters’ misled assumptions and the truth.
1972, one year before the Roe v. Wade decision … IF ever there were a case for justifiable homicide, this would most certainly be one. Jasper was only a few months away from graduating with honors from the University of Washington’s Law School, so he knew more than the average person about the legal justification for killing another human being. When he first learned about this type of defense, he had thought it outrageous. But now, here he was, trying desperately to recall all that he could about how to validate the killing of this man. Because now, he was going to need to know. Now he was the one that needed a reasonable explanation to murder the son-of-a-bitch that did this to his sister.
1987, three young children playing together at their Aunt’s estate when Jasper’s daughter, the bold and insightful ten year old Caroline and her eleven year old cousin Mitchell, a self-described book worm with passion for the military and indifference towards everything else, discover a small cross planted along banks of the river where they swim; a cross that bears the date March 24, 1972.
The Caretakers is not another story of right vs. wrong or good vs. evil, but one of devotion vs. obligation and protection vs. abandonment. This is a story about the internal struggle that one faces when deciding to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but, regardless of consequence, or holding onto a secret forever in order to spare someone else unnecessary anguish.
