Alison's Journey
Saturday, June 4, 1-3pm
Alison’s life is perfect. Married to Eric, a handsome, wealthy man, she teaches 5th grade – just for fun – and is the envy of all her friends.  But beneath the surface, Eric is an abusive monster. Able to take no more, Alison flees her “perfect life” with only her clothes, her car and two cats. After a mad dash across the country, she lands in Grabill, a backwoods Ohio town with seemingly little to offer. But if anyone knows that appearances are deceiving, Alison does. So, she takes her chances on Grabill and, eventually, mechanic Tyler Coffey, embarking on a journey of a whole other kind.

Stump the BooksellerE73: Erin
Adventures, 1950-1975.  I'm searching for a book I know very little about.  I know it is a children's book about a little girl named Erin who has adventures.  A good friend of mine read it when she was a little girl and I thought I would get it for her...She even named her daughter Erin as a result of reading this book.  My friend is 45 years old, so I thought it might have been written in the 60s.  Thanks for your help!
