IBNA- The novel, ‘When Never Comes’ by the American writer Barbara Davis, a story of pain, despair and hope with a teenage girl as protagonist has been translated into Persian and published.
According to IBNA correspondent, written by Barbara Davis who left the corporate world to finally pursue her lifelong passion for writing, ‘When Never Comes’ has been translated into Persian by Ma’edeh Besharat and released by Elmi Publishing in Tehran.
Synopsis of the novel reads: “As a teenage runaway and child of an addict, Christy-Lynn learned the hard way that no address was permanent, and no promise sacred. For a while, she found a safe haven in her marriage to bestselling crime novelist Stephen Ludlow- until his car skidded into Echo Bay.
But Stephen's wasn't the only body pulled from the icy waters that night. When details about a mysterious violet-eyed blonde become public, a media circus ensues, and Christy-Lynn runs again.
Desperate for answers, she's shattered to learn that Stephen and his mistress had a child--a little girl named Iris, who now lives in poverty with her ailing great-grandmother. The thought of Iris abandoned to the foster care system--as Christy-Lynn once was, is unbearable. But she's spent her whole life running--determined never to be hurt again.”
Davis has written four other novels which have not been translated into Persian. Her other novels are: 'The Secrets She Carried' (2013); 'The Wishing Tide' (2014); 'Summer at Hideaway Key' (2015) and 'Love, Alice' (2016).
