Can their marriage survive the loss of one of God’s greatest gifts?
Can A list couple, Kevin and Deidre O’Connor’s marriage survive the escalating inter-family turmoil that follows the murder of their three-year-old son? In the midst of their raging storm, car trouble leads them to Sweet Grove, Texas and an opportunity to find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
When stunning Deidre Torres, the new HR Director, introduces herself to Kevin O’Connor at an Executive staff meeting, Kevin’s heart forewarns danger.
When he invites her to have coffee with him the next day, she hesitates but accepts. The following week, she flatly refuses his dinner invitation citing company policies that prohibit co-worker dating.
After six months of Kevin’s non-stop persistence, Deidre risks her job and agrees to have dinner.
Deidre and Kevin follow their hearts despite the objections and advice of well-meaning family and friends who advise of the complexities of interracial dating. In a fairy tale-like wedding, they vow to each other and before the many doubting wedding guests that nothing will ever separate them.
Six years later, they not only violate their vows but for the first time question the depth of their love for each other.
Previously unknown racial stereotypes, beliefs, and differences threaten to destroy their marriage when their three-year-old son is killed by a stray bullet at a local peace rally.
Will Kevin’s hatred of his son’s killer unmask feelings he never knew he had? Can their marriage tolerate the escalating inter-family turmoil? Can their marriage survive the loss of one of God’s greatest gifts?
About the Author
In my world, there is no life without writing, traveling, family, music and my love of politics. My loves and interests are central to my writing. With this backdrop, regardless of the date or time of your visit, you will find family.
My world (my back-story) is guided by my faith and the inspiration I receive from God. Without exaggeration, family and relationships are the core of every book I write.
I love to travel and like me, my characters are always off and running and in so doing require me to research (and often visit) so many fascinating places.
I also love music—all kinds and I’m never surprised by what track finds its way to my personal playlists and a character’s ring tone, door chime, or car radio station.
People frown sometimes and don’t understand my love of politics, but I have a political administration background and thrived on and in my past government career. For me, it’s the people, the process and what democracy offers. As with life, my fictional towns and cities include mayors, governors, school board members, etc.
If you haven’t guessed, I love my world that allows me to not only live the life I love but to also share it with others.
