Dick and JoAnn Deveny were gainfully employed and lived on Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota, with their two healthy children. On July 13th, 1991 at 4:50 pm, they discovered that tragedies don’t only happen to other people. When their mischievous eighteen-month old son, Billy, slid open the door to their lake home, their destiny changed.
When Bluebirds Fly starts with a riveting account of the Devenys’ journey to their son’s bedside, and then leads you through the adversities that often come with a tragedy: alcoholism, gambling addictions, panic attacks, bankruptcy, Tourrettes, and the loss and rediscovery of faith. But the story doesn’t end there. After life’s momentum brings them through marital difficulties and back, it concludes their relationship with a surprising turn of events.
After reading When Bluebirds Fly, you’ll want to recommend it to friends who are going through adversities or would merely enjoy a true story of love, loss, faith, and revelation.
