Lost and Found At the Bowl-O-Drome
Eleanor Wilson tries hard to be the person her parents want her to be, even though she's restless. She feels like maybe the life she's living isn't really a good fit for her but she's not sure what to do about it. Eleanor's friend Rosemary is planning a debutante's ball but Eleanor finds party-planning tedious. She's also told her mother that under no circumstances, does she want a debutante's ball of her own. The summer after her high school graduation looms before Eleanor. After the first week, she is bored to tears. When her fiancé, Paul, suggests she attend secretarial school, Eleanor jumps at the chance to do something different. The decision to attend secretarial school, sets off an entire chain of events, Eleanor couldn't not have possibly imagined. Eleanor begins to question Paul, her parents and her dreams for herself.
Beauchaine is a lifelong resident of Whitinsville. She works as a
warehouse manager for Bob Johnson's Auto Literature in Framingham, MA and as a
yoga teacher. She's the married mom of two teenaged boys.
