I’ve come to realize how much life can change with circumstance. One moment I was a happy sixteen year old girl with a great brother, Jesse, who I adored.

Then Jesse died.

No matter how much I wished it had been me in the accident, wishing will never change what happened. Five years later, my father’s eyes are still filled with hate and regret whenever he looks at me. I haven’t forgotten my mistake, but I’ve accepted it.

My father has not.

He may always see me as a failure, but I’m determined to make a fresh start in a new town where love promises to be more generous than the scorn I’ve left in my father’s eyes. With any luck, maybe some distance will make him see me as his daughter again. Until then I’ll find my own way.

It’s what Jesse would want.

    • I just added the artist for The English Lily, M. S. Kim Mendoza at the Wild Rose Press. And Marlie is checking with her artist to see if I can add her still. The English Lily is part of a multi-author series you can find out more about here http://talesofthescrimshawdoll.wordpress.com/

    • I’m the author of The English Lily. Kim did a fantastic job on the cover. When I sent my notes regarding my ideas, I asked her if it was possible to keep it in line with three other covers that are part of my self-pubbed Cinderella Series. And she did!!! Needless to say, I was very pleased.
