Helen's Crusade, a novel, follows five main characters: Helen, a middle-aged executive director of Wildlife Restorations, who has a personal mission to save from extinction the wild chinchillas of the Andes Mountains; Martín, a morally conflicted, Hispanic millennial who willingly betrays his boss, Helen, for the sake of his animal rights beliefs; Jim, her reliable husband who fails to meet Helen’s emotional needs; Javier, an attractive Spanish-Italian who takes advantage of Helen’s wavering marital fidelity, and Sloan, an amiable, free-spirit American living in Chile, who whisks Helen away from danger and offers her an escapist adventure with no strings attached.
Helen Wilson is living a life that is the envy of most older women: a secure marriage, an impassioned but sensible adult daughter who adores her, a meaningful job, and a home in Sacramento’s upscale neighborhood. Helen’s busy life helps her avoid introspection that would surface a buried need to follow desires that haven’t diminished with age. Unexpected threats and temptations cause her to look at herself through a different lens and to prefer a path that has no clear end in sight.
Helen’s Crusade, an upmarket women’s fiction manuscript written for Boomer-age readers,
is complete at 96,712 words.
