Safe Passage
by Ellyn Bache
ISBN: 978-1-886420-09-0

Bache gives us an American family richly created and lovingly depicted.

On a chilly October morning, Mag and Patrick Singer awaken in their suburban Washington D.C. home to learn that the airport in Beirut has been bombed by Lebanese terrorists. Among the sixteen hundred Marines stationed there is Percival, one of their seven sons. Over the course of the next three days, as they wait to hear further news of Percival's fate, Mag and Patrick are joined by their six other sons in what becomes a vigil of patience and love, as well as a time for the Singers to make peace with their common past. The Singers' reunion is beset with turmoil, both comic and frightening.

Safe Passage was also made into a movie starring Susan Sarandon as Mag and Sam Shepard as Patrick.

BOSON BOOKS also offers the ebook version of Festival in Fire Season, chosen as a Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club selection and praised by Publishers Weekly as "fast-paced. . . compelling," and "smoldering."
