Longing to Belong by Judi Bergen

Longing to Belong

Judi Bergen

“A must read!” debut novel


Longing to Belong by Judi Bergen is beautifully written in a style reminiscent of Faith Sullivan’s Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse. Turtle Creek, Iowa comes to life through the eyes of Amanda MacGregor, a young woman struggling to fit in with others in town. Her life is haunted by a family tragedy and secrets held by her father’s maiden sister who runs their household. Bergen’s characters drive the story within the milieu of small town life. A must read!  Sue Grove, English & French emeritus faculty, Riverland Community College in Austin, Minnesota.
Longing to Belong, Judi Bergen’s debut novel, is an authentic, compelling story that draws the reader into the hidden layers of a family’s tragedy shrouded in secrecy.  Recommended read for those who want to know the characters inner lives and how they affect the trajectory of their actions. —Kathleen Vellenga, author of Strangers in Our Midst and In the Midst of Bounty.

Amazon Reviews—

From Mary Ragland: Author Judi Bergen beautifully tells this story. It’s a book you can’t put down. I hope there is another one on the horizon!

Characters plucked from war, folklore and modern literature, from the Belgian Congo and the Dust Bowl, from the Battle of the Bulge, Congo Zaire, Gabon and the cold Pisgah Mountains of North Carolina; ink from the pen of Steinbeck and blood from the bitter heart of a wicked sorcerer, these characters come alive in ten lyric parables.
