Synopsis

<p>This poignant and heartbreaking novel explores the power of resilience, the gift of friendship, and the divine beauty to be found in the big, bright world&mdash;if only we&rsquo;re willing to look.</p><p>Pennsylvania, 1940s. The only life Brighton Friedrich has ever known is the one she has endured within the dreary walls of Riverside Home&mdash;the rural asylum where she was born. A nurse, Joann, has educated and raised Brighton, whose mother is a patient at the hospital. But Joann has also kept vital information from Brighton&mdash;secrets that if ever revealed would illuminate Brighton&rsquo;s troubling past and the circumstances that confine her to Riverside. Brighton&rsquo;s best friend is a boy she calls Angel, and as they grow up together and face the bleak future that awaits them, they determine to make a daring escape.</p><p>Nothing can prepare Brighton and Angel for life beyond Riverside&rsquo;s walls. They have no legal identities, very little money, and only a few leads toward a safe place to land. As they struggle to survive in a world they&rsquo;ve never seen before, they must rely on each other and the kindness of strangers&mdash;some of whom may prove more dangerous than the asylum they&rsquo;ve fled.</p><p>Narrated in Elizabeth Byler Yount&rsquo;s gorgeous style, The Bright Unknown is a sparkling search for answers, family, and a place to call home.</p><p>Praise for The Bright Unknown:</p><p>&ldquo;With prose that is luminous and lyrical, The Bright Unknown is a compelling read from the first page to the last.&rdquo; &mdash;Susan Meissner, bestselling author of The Last Year of the War</p>
