PUBLISHER’S BLURB:

Seth Storm, a once famous musician from Nashville, is now nothing more than a fallen star. After climbing the music charts and making his dreams come true, his life took a turn that he’d never expected, causing him to lose it all. Now Seth is determined to do whatever it takes to turn his life around, even if that includes doing the one thing he swore he’d never do. After giving up music and the career he spent much of his life building, Seth embarks on a journey to get back what he cherishes the most: his daughter, Faith.

Trista Tilman, a single mother, finds shelter on the road as she and her daughter try to escape her abusive fiancé, Randall Tuck. As Trista struggles to repair her damaged relationship with her daughter, Tuck begins to close in on them.

Along the way, Seth and Trista encounter a storm that threatens their one chance at getting their lives back. Forced to travel together, they discover that success lies not just at the hands of fate but also within each other, two unlikely travelers fighting to survive not only the storm but also the demons of their past.

As the road takes them deeper and deeper into the storm, Seth and Trista find themselves face-to-face with their worst fears. Can love help them pick up the broken pieces of their lives?

Losing Faith is the first book in the Seth & Trista series. It precedes The Greatest Gift and The Final Encore.

LET IT BE

LET IT BE

LET IT BE WAS A QUICK READ ABOUT THE FLIGHT FROM AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP, BEGINNING TO TRUST AGAIN, BETRAYAL OF A LOVED ONE THAT LEAD TO HEIGHTENED VIOLENCE.  IT IS A GOOD STORY WITH A STRONG PLOT AND THE BACKGROUND BEATLES THEME BRINGS IT ALL TOGETHER.  ENJOY THE READ!

PUBLISHER’S EXCERPT:

Let It Be is a touching tale of loss, longing, and forgiveness that chronicles the breakup of a marriage, the destruction of a family, and the struggle to come together in the aftermath of what remains.

Searching for the love and happiness she feels she deserves, Michelle Jansen leaves her abusive, overbearing husband behind and takes her two kids to Amarillo, Texas, where she begins to learn how to stand on her own two feet, supporting herself and her children with the money she earns from a low-paying job as she becomes increasingly involved with a coworker who is an even bigger fan of the Beatles than she is.

But Michelle doesn’t realize that her ex-husband is willing to do whatever he can to destroy her new life. When Michelle is betrayed by her very own son, this already fractured family will be damaged in an almost unimaginable way. Can they find forgiveness in the midst of so much sorrow and guilt, or will love give them the strength that they need to let it be?

Part family saga, part coming of age tale, Let It Be is a story intimately linked to the music of the Beatles, a debut novel filled with true-to-life characters who want nothing more than a second chance.
