Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you enjoyed last week’s snippet from ” Journey to her Dreams “. Today I’d like “to hook you” with another teaser.
With an almost feral scowl, he forcefully rejected her in return, the movement so sudden and fierce as he pushed her against the wall, she not only hit her head, but it also drove all the air from her lungs.
Despite the pain, relief rushed through her as she watched him walk into the bathroom. Taking a couple of small, easy breaths, she retreated into the guest room down the hallway, where she took a little teddy bear out of the bottom drawer in the cupboard and sat on the bed. Cradling her companion, she ignored the tears that trickled down her face.
She quickly swiped her cheeks when he came towards the room and carefully placed her teddy bear back into the rear of the drawer underneath a pink and yellow baby blanket.
“How about I prepare us a nice dinner?” he offered, the expressionless look on his face upsetting her even more.
Yet, with all the strength she was able to come up with, she smiled. It took so much effort and was as painful as what had just happened…yet, she smiled. “Sounds good,” was all she was able to say.
There must be a reason for her dreams…
Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.
Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.
When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love?

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

This hook is a great illustration of the very real limitations of ‘show, don’t tell.’ The things in this scene that you can show are relatively insignificant compared to the emotions hidden beneath the surface.
Thank you Ed. Much appreciated.
Thank you Janet 🙂
