Book 2 is coming! I’m so excited to share with you my blurb for my second novel, A Half Made Whole, releasing early 2019.
I’ve loved, and I’ve lost, and now it’s time to live. My daughter is all I have left, and after years of struggling with the overwhelming weight of grief, I’ve decided it’s time for a fresh start. For both of us. An opportunity lands us in Atlanta, and a career as an occupational therapist is the first step toward rebuilding our lives. But rebuilding comes with walls, and I’ve built them tall and wide around my heart. Having survived so much loss, I’ve learned to hold on and hold back. When a colleague’s brother needs therapy, we hit it off immediately and become fast friends. The more I help him, the more I realize that he’s the one helping me heal. When I see how much he truly cares for me and my daughter, my walls start to crumble and my feelings for him grow into something more. Something I wasn’t expecting… and now fear losing.
I was living my dream. Until one day I walked into a burning building as a fireman and I came back out feeling like half of a man. Tired of feeling helpless, I move to Atlanta, motivated to get back to who I used to be. Even if that means finally going to therapy and accepting the help I don’t want to admit I need. After meeting my new therapist, I’m more determined than ever to prove to her and myself that I can do this. As time goes on and I begin to see her as more than a friend, it becomes clear that not all of my wounds are physical. Facing my fears of inadequacy will require letting go and letting my guard down, but I’m not sure I’m ready. My feelings for her are growing, but I know she would never see me as more than friends. Then she proves me wrong, and for the first time in a long time, I feel like anything is possible, especially when I’m given an opportunity to get a piece of my old life back. But what does that mean for us?
The past pulls at us as we struggle to move forward. Will we ever be able to let down the walls for good and admit to ourselves and each other that together we can be whole?
