Promise Road, a novel by Zionsville’s Dee Armstrong Crabtree, was released on Oct. 1. The book represents Crabtree’s initial foray into fiction.
Set primarily in Columbus, Ind. during the turbulent 1960s and 70s, Promise Road focuses on a young girl, Emily, growing up with a sociopathic father and a bitter, narcissistic mother. Her childhood experiences affect her throughout her life, sadly skewing her ability to differentiate between sane and insane behavior. Emily often questions her own sanity as she later navigates through the difficulties of finding a healthy, stable relationship.
Crabtree was born in Columbus and studied journalism at Saint Mary of the Woods College. She has been widely published since 1991. The novel is available through both Amazon.com and Lulu.com.
