Little Boy Lost by Vada M. Wolter and Joseph A. Zapalac

After three short years, she returned to the farm she hated and bickering parents. Her husband’s unforeseen accident on an oil rig changed their lives and that of their infant son, Johnny. Long Road Home’s Little Boy Lost is a story of Johnny Daniels, a painfully-shy, poverty-stricken country boy who is emotionally and verbally abused, and lied to by those he loves the most.
