“So many aspects of nature restore the soul, but for me, being on the water is the most cleansing.”
Ashley Farley, Saving Ben

“You have to trust in your heart that you can accomplish your goals, then let the rest of your body do the work.”
Ashley Farley, Her Sister's Shoes

“fresh tear slid down Bella’s cheek. “Mommy’s gone!” A chill crawled over Ellie’s skin. She slipped from beneath the covers and grabbed her robe from the foot of the bed.

Ashley Farley, Magnolia Nights
