Come, Thou Tortoise PDF

Jessica Grant

A delightfully offbeat story that features an opinionated tortoise and her owner who find themselves in the middle of a life-changing mystery.

Audrey (a.k.a. Oddly) Flowers is living quietly in Oregon with Winnifred, her tortoise, when she finds out her dear father has been knocked into a coma back in Newfoundland. Despite her fear of flying, she goes to him, but not before she reluctantly dumps Winnifred with her unreliable friends. Poor Winnifred.

When Audrey disarms an Air Marshal en route to St. Johns we begin to realize theres something, well, odd about her. And we soon know that Audreys quest to discover who her father really was - and reunite with Winnifred - will be an adventure like no other.

Excerpt:
Winnifred is old. She might be three hundred. She came with the apartment. The previous tenant, a rock climber named Cliff, was embarking on a rock-climbing adventure that would not have been much fun for Winnifred. Back then her name was Iris. Cliff had inherited Iris from the previous tenant. Nobody knew how old Iris was or where she had come from originally. Now Cliff was moving out. He said, Would you like a tortoise.

I would not say no to a tortoise, I said.

I was alone in Portland and the trees were giant. I picked her up and she blinked at me with her upside-down eyelids. I felt instantly calm. Her eyes were soft brown. Her skin felt like an old elbow. I will build you a castle, I whispered. With a pool. And I was true to my word.

09.07.2013 · As our group delved deeper into all the various aspects of Come, Thou Tortoise, we began to notice many similarities between things mentioned in the novel and the life of Jessica Grant. Examples of these can be seen in the setting of Newfoundland, the profession of Audrey’s father working with mice in a lab and Jessica’s mother working with SCENE II. The island. Before PROSPERO'S cell.
