November flew by at breakneck pace. My tree is up. I’m almost done Christmas shopping. Oh and all of the kids have had strep and flu (back to back) since my last wrap up. Honestly? I would love to sit here and give you my usual, “this is life and what we’re doing,” bit. But, I’m just worn out. I’m worn smack dab out. So this is what you get on real life. Cause, real life is crazy! I promise, I’ll do better when I wrap up December.
Besides, I know you’re here for the blog stuff anyway! So…let’s get to it!

Arson wasn’t the only fire that ignited between them.
She was arrested.
He returned to the safety of his wealthy parents.
Almost ten years later, Hadley and Monroe are both specialists in the field of speech therapy. They meet again . . . thrown together to help a four-year-old-girl rendered mute after being rescued from a fire.
Years of secrets and anger beg to be set free as Hadley and Monroe try to push aside past hurts and find common ground in order to help the traumatized child and her family.
Can the love of Christmas past drift into the present, bringing healing and hope for all?
