Donley C. Townsend’s new Audiobook, ‘Bonnie Duffy’s Journey’, is a playful, adventurous story of an orphan girl who sets off on a journey inspired by her literary heroes

Donley C. Townsend, an author who prides himself on his craft of delicately weaving fact with fiction, has completed his new audiobook, “Bonnie Duffy’s Journey”: an exciting coming-of-age story told in the vein of classic adventure tales, with a lovable, plucky little Dickensian girl for a main character.
Author Townsend, aware of the sometimes dangerous escapism and misguidance of fiction, is no stranger to its life-changing power, and shows through Bonnie how much of a refuge it can be for a twelve-year-old runaway in need of such guidance: “Bonnie had a map, some canned goods, matches, a pocket knife, a water canteen, needles and thread, and best of all, some boy’s clothes. The store had some books for sale; some were used. Bonnie had time to read the used books; it was the only good thing about the mercantile. Bonnie liked to read Mark Twain, Stevenson, Cooper, and the Wild West stories. In these pages, Bonnie found encouragement, hope, and inspiration. A determination to persevere consumed Bonnie.”
Published by Audiobook Network, Donley C. Townsend’s new audiobook is an engaging rendition of the classic 19th-century adventure stories of such authors as Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson.
This imaginative take on the worlds introduced to readers through these notorious tales brings Bonnie’s world to life. Placed in real historical sites and meeting some enchanting characters along the way, Bonnie’s adventure is sure to delight.
