Child of Privilege by Ross Ponderson

indie ebook cover

A young woman is running for her life.

She is running from a horribly twisted fairytale of privilege, wealth, culture, social standing, and a palatial mansion. But privilege did not exempt her from frequent beatings; wealth provided no shelter from constant fear; culture did nothing to shield her from debilitating verbal abuse; and social standing granted her no protection from a powerful, psychotic father who hated her guts.

That palatial mansion had become a house of horrors.

Every word of this story echoes with courage, strength, and determination as Dana Van Werner faces an uncertain future in the “real world” for which she is laughably ill-prepared.

This lovable, down-to-earth teenager (more "girl next door" than debutante) grows up quickly as she confronts intercity buses, seedy motels, wet t-shirt contests, jail cells, honky-tonks, and predatory night people. All the while, she is relentlessly pursued by private investigators hired by her father to bring her back ... by whatever means necessary.

She doesn't know where she's going, where her next meal is coming from, or where she'll sleep tonight. Her pockets contain only a bus ticket, $262, hope, her own wits, and an unbreakable will.

And she is running straight into a deadly showdown.

This Adult Contemporary Romance novel reaches its climax with a tragic accident and the uncovering of a humiliating family secret. It reaches a second flashpoint as long-simmering anger, resentment, and hunger for revenge finally erupt into a terrifying showdown.

Can Dana overcome a lifetime of victimization and free herself from her revenge-obsessed father?

You'll find yourself cheering for this endearing heroine as she searches for a new home and a new life, and finds a gentle, caring man who truly loves her.

Relax and lose yourself on this emotional roller-coaster of heartwarming heights, tearful depths, and moments of wry humor. Join Dana on her perilous journey in search of freedom, peace … and herself.

About The Author...

indie author

Ross Ponderson


Ross Ponderson is a retired IT guy who spends far too many hours writing things on computers for the pure self-satisfaction of seeing them onscreen. Now, instead of writing programming code, he is writing actual English words in the hope that millions of people will enjoy reading them. He enjoys writing (of course), reading, railroading, history, surfing (the web, that is), museums of any kind, 1970's music, wishing he had become a professional musician (much to the dismay of his weary keyboard), and strolling through the local malls. He ALWAYS brakes for book emporiums and music stores. "Child of Privilege" is his first novel; hopefully many more will follow.
