Coming of Age Fiction

My Name is Sloan

Sloan cover
By E. Compton Lee

E. Compton Lee’s work as a therapist has been extremely helpful since her tales are mainly about people with their strengths and failings, courage and cowardice and heartbreaking humanness.

Her latest book, My Name Is Sloan is set in rural Pennsylvania. Except for her mother, Clare, no one cares when the government takes eight-year-old Sloan from the backwoods of Appalachia to use as a pawn for their own purposes. Clare joins the society she has previously shunned as she struggles to reclaim her daughter before foster care can inflict damage that goes beyond the hope of healing.

This story is a companion to her first novel Native. Both books can be found on Amazon.
