River Runs Deep: a love story

Hello friends, and thanks for strolling by the lane today.

Last night I had a dream about my book, River Runs Deep, so, today I decided to feature it. This story was quite therapeutic for me in many ways. First, while writing it, I was still working at the awful job I was able to be redeemed from this past May, and little did I know at the time of writing it how prophetic it would be. Second, it was a beautiful way to rekindle a sweet memory that has lasted all these years.

Though it’s a fictional story, there is much truth in many of the story’s circumstances, so it really was, as they say, writing about what you know. If you’re looking for a good, clean romance (like Hallmark, only with a bit more depth), one that puts a lot of story into a short amount of reading time, then I think you’ll enjoy River Runs Deep: a love story.

Come by and visit again. There are lots of things on Leisure Lane to inspire you from past to present. Be brave, think twice, do what’s right, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Artist and part-time grocery employee, Catherine Donahue, is left feeling even more frustrated and disheartened after a drastic change disrupts her already frazzled life.  For years, she had faith things would get better, yet they seem to be getting worse.  But when Catherine rediscovers a long-ago cherished gift hidden under the chaos of her once organized drawers, a secret memory transports her back 23 years to a college, a pow-wow, and Sam – a young Mohawk, who made a single weekend last a lifetime.

As the days ahead bring synchronized hints of Native American connections across Catherine’s path, she ponders their significance.  Is there a possibility she might chance upon her long-lost, beloved weekend companion – or is she indulging in a frivolous fantasy?   And could the coincidence of her newly acquired painting commission hold the key to happiness and a lasting chance at love – or ultimately, to another disappointment?
