Local author William Goodson shares his debut novel The Blue-Eyed Girl. Set in the 1960s, this unique story follows a small town girl's new life amidst a sprawling college campus in the Midwest. At first she is lonely among her more sophisticated classmates, until she befriends a group of international students. But one boy’s calculated seduction turns violent. This is a powerful look at the aftermath of crime—for assailant, victim and bystander—which tells how one woman breaks free of doubt and guilt.
