What She Didn’t Know – Most Likely the Next Published Novel

My longest novel, What She Didn’t Know, that I started writing in January 2018 and finished in July 2019, will most likely be the next book I publish.

I’ve been told, and I also believe, it may be my “breakout” novel. A fellow critique writer helped me spruce up the novel’s blurb that will be on the book. It is the newest version. It may be changed just a bit in the coming months, but right now, it works. Here it is:

Nature-loving Gloria and her sisters Michaela and Seraphima grew up at the hands of an alcoholic, abusive father. At thirteen, Gloria runs away, leaving her two sisters and parents for a decade. A change in events brings her back home to her sisters in the thick of marital struggles and strained relationships. Shortly after, the family’s world is rocked, with tragedy striking and secrets lingering. Will Gloria be the linchpin to her family’s healing?

And here’s a picture of the book cover design I created that I’m wanting to use.

So, if you read Passage of Promise, and even if you haven’t, keep an eye out for this gem to be published hopefully by early next year. 🙂

Hope

One of my favorite movies that I’ve watched so many times over the years, I’ve lost count, is Hope Floats.

In a time when hope is needed more than ever, I wanted to share a few words, quotes, and a song I’ve been listening to this afternoon that moves me to tears, as it’s so beautiful.

First off, know that you were created by a Trinity, Who is Love, Peace, and Hope.

He fashioned you with the breath of His Spirit, the soil of His created planet, and in His own Image.

You are higher than every plant, animal, and nature’s grandest and most beautiful mountains, seas, and deep, rich forests.

You are higher than the angels.

You are the conduit between the immaterial and material.

All because of Him. His Love.

This pandemic will pass.

This economic depression will pass.

We will meet on the other side of it all with the hope of better things to come.

Live in the Light, Love, and Peace of Him.

 

“I was reborn when I was broken,

I wouldn’t believe, I wouldn’t believe, no,

Been through a storm, no use in hoping,

That you would come rescue me,

Somehow your love set me free.

And I, I can let my life pass me by,

Or I can get down and try,

Work it all out this lifetime,

Work it on out this time.

I can let it all pass me by,

Or I can get down and try,

Work it all out this lifetime, lifetime…”

– by singer, Maxwell
