Published by Guiding Light Women's Fiction
Publication Date January 10, 2018
Setting: Georgia Contemporary
Written for: Adults
Two women fighting for their dreams, one who’s long lost hers, are united by tragedy and a long-held secret.
Pregnant with her first child, Emily Hayes is eager to help her mother finish transforming an estate into the Willow Inn and write a novel about Willow Falls’colorful history. A tragic event threatens her parents’plans to refurbish an abandoned hotel and transform the obscure Georgia setting into a tourist destination.
Sadie Lyles left Willow Falls a murderer who’d killed the town hero. She returns as a despised felon and seeks solace in the town’s café. Emily struggles to unite the close-knit community and becomes Sadie’s biggest advocate. She strives to uncover the truth about the crime and save her town from dying.
To appease her father, Rachel, a VP in his Atlanta real-estate-development firm, relegates her acting dream to secret performances for imaginary audiences. After meeting charming, flirtatious Charlie Bricker, manager for Willow Falls’ future vineyard, she vows to break free from her father’s control.
The tragedy and Willow Inn’s secret past launch Emily and Rachel on a collision course with destiny and truth.
Rachel Streetman strolled past the high-dollar paintings and plush furniture to the window. Located on the thirty-eighth floor in a downtown Atlanta high-rise, her father’s office offered a spectacular view. She gazed down Peachtree Street toward the renowned Fox Theater. A smile curled her lips as she imagined standing center stage ready to entertain an adoring audience. Her mind drifted back to her senior year in college when she played Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street. The accolades fellow students showered on her remained as the last trace of a lifelong dream to act.
Greer Streetman breezed into the room, stood behind his daughter, and put his hands on her shoulders.
“It’s a great view from up here with the rest of the world at our feet.”
Her mental image vanished, along with her smile.
“In your new position I expect you to play a major role in expanding my business.”
While her mind urged her to tell him it wasn’t the role she was born to play, her heart compelled her to swallow the comment. She spun around and looked up into her father’s brown eyes. “I understand.”
