Still reeling from the suicide of his best friend Tess, seventeen-year old Brendan struggles to overcome his addiction and identity issues. Walking the ledge outside his Manhattan apartment has become its own sort of drug, as he stands night after night with his arms outstretched, ready to fly away. Sarah can see him from her window, and begins journaling about this boy she sees on the ledge. Paige and Nate, a young couple in another building, can see both teens from their fire escape.

"Letters from the Ledge is a wonderful, captivating novel. Lynda's skilled writing and compelling storytelling had me hooked from page one. The characters are real, honest and raw. I found myself identifying with their triumphs, pains, longings and fears. Letters from the Ledge will challenge you, change your way of looking at those around you, and ultimately leave you examining your own desire, your own need, to leap and to fly. I have and will recommend this book to friends of all ages!" - Danielle (reader, Amazon reviewer)
"If you are looking for a good read in the New Year, this blossoming author has provided it. It's fresh, real, captivating, romantic and yes, Edgy!
The back stories are raw and the language is authentic. The theory of six degrees of separation comes to life as a "ledge walker, window watcher and fire escape sitter" take to the night skies high above Midtown Manhattan. You will find yourself immersed in the lives of these characters, maybe even identifying with parts of them, making it easy to turn the page and nearly impossible to put down.
For me, it was a journey through the souls of these characters in self-discovery and healing. As the Dalai Lama put it, "We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves."
