That Girl in The Boxcar

An Historical Family Saga

The Reisen Series - Book 1

Coming May 2024

She’s fleeing a suffocating secret. Will she sink into the dark or rise to the light?

Idaho, 1925. Heidi Schlager has nowhere to go. Growing up with an abusive drunk of a father, the traumatized fourteen-year-old runaway is hiding on a train when she meets an aging hobo. And after the intelligent bookworm recites a poem to her literary companion, she sparks an instant friendship and delights in deciding to stick together.

Riding to a town in Iowa to meet her new pal’s sometime-lover, Heidi’s unrelenting feelings of despair intrude on the warm camaraderie developing between the three. And as confusing sexual desires mix with the ghosts of her past threatening to drown her, she struggles with the temptation to give up.

Can the young woman with no one to hold onto discover a found family to help her survive?

That Girl in The Boxcar is the sweeping first book in The Reisen historical fiction series. If you like adventurous heroines, hopeful themes, and redeeming relationships, then you’ll adore Tim Wickenden's tale of self-discovery.
