Book Description

In 1983, housekeeping in the century-old Lake Yellowstone Hotel beckons to Sara Budge's desire to escape her abusive family. The summer break from college offers the time to determine her plans for the rest of her life.

Peace eludes Luck Williams, and the opportunity handed to him to photograph his favorite place on earth is irresistable. Even caught up in the pristine beauty he is unable to escape the haunting nightmares of one horrific day.

A fresh start doesn't guarantee the past stays in the past. The fragility and capriciousness of life guarantees pain and disappointment.

Choosing perfect serenity and safety over love and trust may spare dips into the valleys, but the awe-inspiring views from the peaks are also forfeit. God provides gentle inspiration and the precious gift of choice, for those willing to risk the leap of faith.

About the Author

Laurel Hawkes (a pen name) has spent most of her life in the Valley of the Sun, calling Yellowstone, Thailand, and England home for a brief time. Work encompassed a variety of trades including housekeeper, cashier, switchboard operator, reservation agent, teacher's aide, sign language interpreter, medical transcriptionist, and, now, writer. When she was told she could never succeed as a writer, she believed it, and boxed away the dream, but God laid writing on her heart. He offered her numerous breadcrumbs to help her find her way. Asking her not to write would now be tantamount to asking her not to breathe. Laurel enjoys making fresh homemade bread, which helps her work through plot difficulties, and blackberry jam, using the berries from the bushes in her yard. Additional pleasures include books and music, dogs and horses. Walks on the beach don't happen nearly enough. Shy at first, she's quick to become a chatterbox. She loves sharing the adventure of life with friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Powerful February 6, 2013
By shosier
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second book of Hawkes' I've read, and it's the better of the two (no disrespect to the first, Promise of Possibilities, which is an enjoyable Regency romance). I fell in love with the "vintage" setting of Yellowstone in the mid 1980s, depicted beautifully by the author here. I don't usually enjoy spending so much time inside the characters' heads, but it was a vital part of this particular tale of abuse- and trauma-survivors finding each other. Hawkes writes sensitively and competently, deftly cutting razor-close to the spiritual and emotional hearts of these two damaged young people. By the end of the tale, Luck and Sara still have a long way to go to heal completely, but you're left with no doubt they'll make it... together.
