Book Details

Heart-wrenching and humorous, SAVING MADELINE takes you from Hollywood to the Hills. When Roxy, a naïve but spunky young actor, a wounded warrior, and a woman whose memory is fading are forced to co-exist, tensions run high, but so does the laughter.

Along comes the well-connected actor, James Jonathan Jarvis, and Roxy’s big break in showbiz: a part in a reality TV show with a wilderness survival theme. But a week before rehearsals begin, her confused mother disappears. Roxy’s search leads her close to Yellowstone National Park where she becomes trapped in a real life-and-death scenario. What gives her the strength to survive? Her goal: To save Madeline.

Though the daily obstacles that challenge these three women are paramount, they manage to find humor in their frequent calamities, and Roxy’s Hollywood misadventures buffer the troubling glimpses into the world of a woman whose memory is fading.

“Saving Madeline, a novel by Cricket Rohman, is a tightly woven, high-energy story that ties together the lives of three women who desperately require the support of each other. We believe this novel should be read by all of us so that we may be better prepared than Ms. Rohman’s cast of characters to face the reality of the struggle of our wounded warriors, our aging parents and ourselves.” — Terri Price, artist — Curt Plaskon, author of Life: Still the Greatest Show on Earth
