Finding Pride

description

It's a wonderful story about second chances in love & life.

Megan Kimble was traveling a long way to find the next chapter in her life, one that would not include her brother Matt. Losing him now was tragic, even more so since she had finally freed herself from the abuse and the shame of a bad marriage. She had spent years hiding things from Matt, so he wouldn't know about her horrible life. Keeping her secret world of bruises, cuts, and broken bones, much like the one she now sported with a large white cast.

Dealing with her loss was hard, but, now she was thinking of taking over Matt's new business venture. This could be the fresh start she needed, a new town, a new place to forget the pain and maybe she could learn to trust again.

Todd Jordan was a successful businessman, who had once lost it all, and now he had just lost his best friend and business partner. But, then she came into town broken and scared, and for the first time in a long time he was looking forward to his future. Breaking down Megan's barriers would take patience and strength, and he would need that strength to keep what he loves safe.

message 34: by Dawn (new)

Dawn Whidden (dawn71753) | 43 comments When dependable Evan Madison fails to show up for work, police are dispatched to his home. His ten-year-old son, Brad, is discovered inside, unharmed and seemingly alone. He is stoic, sitting in front of the television playing his favorite video game, Super Mario-and he's covered in blood. Veteran Police Officer Marty Keal is the first on the scene. With his many years of experience, he thinks he's seen it all. That is, until he discovers Brad's not really alone after all. Upstairs in their bedroom lies the brutally bludgeoned and deceased bodies of both his mother and his father. When questioned, Brad confesses to the horrific murders. When Brad is transferred to a local mental health institution for children, Dr. Hope Rubin is brought in to evaluate and treat the child. A preliminary investigation shows no evidence of any kind of mistreatment in his past. She must determine the disturbing truth: Is Brad telling the truth? Or is he covering for someone else? Detective Jean Whitely rounds out the investigative team; and she suspects there is much more to the case than what meets the eye. The happily married mother of two is unwavering in her determination to uncover the real truth about Brad. Was he abused? Or is he the product of an evil seed born to kill? As the layers of truth about Brad are systematically peeled away, you will be compelled to ask yourself, Which is the more dominate factor in contributing to who we are-NATURE or NURTURE?

message 49: by John (new)

John theSailor (thesailor) | 8 comments I would like to nominate my own book, which my publisher called:
"One of those unique and wonderful manuscripts that come one's way all too rarely"

The Seven Gifts came to Earth and lay dormant, unseen, like seeds in an empty desert. Then the rains came, as an Angel bearing seven mysterious books. Woven within them, far from the eye of a casual reader, were the simple truths of The Seven Gifts. The Angel chose a young boy to reveal them: to endure a wild, spiritual odyssey through seven arcane and bizarre worlds, in pursuit of a lonely white dolphin - the final link to the wonder of The Seven Gifts; and the enigma of the Angel, and the mystery of himself. And perhaps the mystery of us...

"Beautifully written tales that capture the mind, heart and spirit" - LL Book Review
"Walks that fine line between profound and insane" - Inkweaver Review
"It is really a wonderful, unique book" - Zuzka Vašíčková
