It's also available in a special edition hardcover here.

He hesitated only half a second before lowering his head. There was something there, behind his eyes, in his soul. Something that seemed familiar to Sophie. She didn’t know Leland, but she recognized that haunted look in his eyes. He had lost someone. He had weathered the storm and still manned his ship, sailing forward through life.

Book blurb:

World War II has ended but the scars of the war have carved deep grooves in Sophie Wright’s heart. Now a widow with two young children, she returns home to Aspen Falls and meets Leland Halverson, a handsome carpenter who appears interested in her, but afraid of a relationship. 

Leland wishes he was worthy of the beautiful Sophie, and he adores her two children, but his past still haunts him. Sophie knows that Leland fell apart after his little girl died and his wife left him, but she doesn’t know the real reason why.

Meanwhile, David Alexander, a decorated bomber pilot has returned to Aspen Falls, and Sophie catches his eye. Confused by the two vastly different choices of men, Sophie searches for answers from a heart that has betrayed her before.

When Sophie discovers a message inside a music box that Leland once owned, the pieces start to fit together. The enchanting melody urges her to share the secrets of her heart so that she can understand his. Leland knows the tune from the music box well and if he can find the courage, he’ll carve a melody for Sophie from the solid wood surrounding his heart.

Wednesday Wanderings - May 24th

Wandering #1 ...


London - Day 3

Our first stop of the day was Strawberry Hill House in Twickenham. It's the first manor built completely in the Gothic style of architecture and is the inspiration for the fairy guardian's house in our four-book Victorian time travel series.


Check out the intricate wrought iron stairs.





The owner owned tons of stained glass and used it all over the house. 


There were different styles of fireplaces all over the house, and check out that library.

It was really fun to imagine our characters in a house like this.
This is me and three of the other authors, Laura Bastian
and the mother/daughter duo who write as Jo Noelle

Our next stop was the Tower of London.
For some reason, I thought it was really just a tower. 
Their armory is huge!
Wandering #2 ...

Yard & Fencing

We've been working on the outside of the house. Before I left for the UK, they got the front sprinkler system in and the sod laid.


Friends and neighbors are helping with the fencing.



What have you been up to? Got any summer plans?
