Elissa lost her husband a year ago in a plane crash. She's been grieving ever since, she's lost her zest for life.
Marius lost his wife a year ago in a plane crash. He's been grieving ever since.
Something happens to both of them that may change their lives even further. In dreams both see their spouses pushing them toward one another. Just a dream .. or a message from beyond?
When they come fce to face they are both astonished, confused, yet each of them feel they've known each other forever.
Will they overcome their fear of the future and contemplate their own lives together? Or will the grief keep them from seeing further than the life they've been living this past year?
For a short story, this one really packed a punch. Two lost souls who have a second chance of happiness ... if only they're brave enough to reach for it. Is it meant to be?
For a novella, I found Fateful Dreams by Marcia Carrington an engrossing read which could easily appease readers who like short and sweet romances. I love how the author fits so much emotion into her stories so quickly. I wanted to cry with Elissa and Marius towards the end of the book, this reveals the power of the connection the characters have with each other.
Stories of loss of spouse traumas exist but few authors can present a marriage rupture and the impact on both isolated now single figures and causative agent (with a hint of paranormal insight) as well as Marcia - and in so few pages.
She offers a taste of the setting of the past tragedy (and blink of light for finding respite) from the first page – “Tomorrow’s the first anniversary of Jason’s passing, I can’t believe it,” Elissa said, holding the telephone tightly in her grip. Elissa’s sister Elena shook her head, and nodded. “Yes, the time’s gone by so quickly.” “It has,” Elissa said, wiping a tear from her eye with her hand. “But it hasn’t made it any easier.” Elena sighed, biting her lips. “They say time heals things, but it’s never as cut and dry as some people say,” Elena said, nodding, as Elissa did the same. “Would you like me to stay with you tonight?” “What about Eamon?” Elena chuckled as she thought of him, moving a strand of blond hair behind her ear. “Eamon wouldn’t mind, he’s a very understanding husband.” Elissa knew this was true about Eamon, but did not want to take Elena away from him on her account. “No, I’m…I’m okay, thanks so much Elena. You’ve always been a tower of support, but if you don’t mind, I’d prefer to be alone tonight.” “I understand Elissa.” “Can I…see you tomorrow?” Elissa asked, playing with the fabric of her blouse. “Sure honey, whatever you want. I can see you at the café tomorrow, you know, Oneira. Does that work for you?” “It does. See you there around 11:00AM,” Elissa said. “Done. Good night honey.” “Bye Elena,” Elissa said, placing the red phone in the holder. “I really do need time to think tonight,” Elissa said, pursing her lips. Looking around the living room, Elissa remembered something. She knew Jason loved whichever room he was in to have atmosphere, and proceeded to the kitchen.’
Or as the synopsis distills, ‘It is one year since both Elissa and Marius lost their spouses in a plane crash, which has left them reeling and confused. On the one year anniversary of their spouses' loss they both see a dream where their late spouses are pushing them towards each other, even though Elissa and Marius do not know one another. A chain of events brings about the meeting of Elissa and Marius, but their grief may stand in the way of them coming to terms with their lives, and each other's presence...
Sensitivity of this nature comes naturally to Marcia. Her books may make a fast read, but the impact is lasting!. Grady Harp, October 18
