Benevolent by Devon Trevarrow Flaherty: Available For You To Bring Home Now

Author Devon Trevarrow Flaherty's book Benevolent has just come out this 18th of March 2013, and this is one book you surely can't miss out on! As I was speaking to her some days before the launch, she told me that though most would categorize this 406-page novel as literary fiction, 'it also falls under the labels of magic realism and coming-of-age, and includes some satire, humanitarianism, and romance. Plus, if you loved the 80s, the 90s, Detroit, the suburbs, the Midwest, or Israel, you’ll feel right at home with Gaby and the rest of the characters.'

So what is the book all about??


Gaby LeFevre is a suburban, Midwestern firecracker, growing up in the 80s and 90s and saving the world one homeless person, centenarian, and orphan at a time. With her crew of twin sister, Annie, smitten Mikhail, and frenemy Mel, she’s a pamphlet-wielding humanitarian, tackling a broken world full of heroes and heroines, villains and magical seeds, and Northwyth stories.



Beginning with a roadkill-burying nine-year-old and a gas-leak explosion, Benevolent follows Gaby from her formative years; through her awakening during a soup-kitchen stampede; through high school drama; a college career filled with an epic term paper, a building fire, and a protest-gone-bad; to Israel, a land full of romance and mysticism. It all ends back in metro-Detroit with a cataclysmic clash to resolve all good intentions.




Benevolent has released in the virtual world on the 18th of March 2013 and is already available on Kindle.
