As a single parent I have a new appreciation for the role my family and friends play in my life. I used to be an “I am Woman, Hear me Roar” type who felt I didn’t need anyone—boy, was I wrong. Without my family and friends’ support, guidance, and love I would never have succeeded in rearing my son.
But as a single mom I also recognize how difficult it is to date! I dream of a second chance at everlasting, soulmate love. Sitting at home last New Year’s eve, without a date, I decided to write a story about a second chance at love. A love story I would be proud to experience. An always and forever love. Now you’re probably thinking to yourself—how sad…but wait! A person has to learn to laugh at their triumphs and tragedies. While writing this love story I laughed and cried. I have a feeling you will too! Especially when Rachel’s crazy cat Ebony is involved, which is often.
Throughout life we all have conversations with God. Have you ever prayed for something and years later realized your prayer was answered BUT not as you intended? I have, so I incorporated this experience into my heroine’s life. Rachel has many highs and lows, but don’t we all? Many romance books have weak heroines who need a man to validate them, but not Rachel. Rachel is a strong, resilient female. A person stronger than she ever imagined. Rachel discovers her strength through her faith, family, and friends. I’m a firm believer God doesn’t give us more than we can handle. Granted there are times I wonder if he feels I’m made of steel, but he never fails to give me the determination and perseverance required.
The Strength of Love is an inspiring, suspenseful, second chance at love story perfect for the holiday season. I hope it inspires you to be thankful for the lessons learned in 2015 and helps you create awe inspiring dreams for 2016.
