The Ontario Library Association is thrilled to announce Joy Fielding is the winner of the 2013 Forest of Reading® Golden Oak™ Award for her book Home Invasion (Grass Roots Press).
“It’s always lovely to get an award for something you love to do, and I am particularly honoured to receive this award because Home Invasion was written specifically for adults who struggle with literacy, and to be acknowledged by them in this way is tremendously gratifying,” Joy Fielding said.
In Home Invasion, Kathy Brown suddenly wakes up. Was that a noise in the house, or part of her dream? In her dream, Kathy was about to kiss Michael, her high school boyfriend. Her husband, Jack, lies beside her, snoring. Michael is exciting. Jack is boring. When Kathy hears the noise again, she gets up. Then she hears whispers. Then she feels a gun at her head. Two men are in the house. Kathy and her husband face a living nightmare. Kathy must also face her real feelings about her husband. The outcome surprises everyone, most of all Kathy herself.
