INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.
Here’s another little snippet.
“Advice is what we ask for when we already
know the answer, but wish we didn’t.”
The sun was on its best behaviour and slipped from behind a cloud, giving warmth to the autumn day. Emma and Nadine had walked over to a nearby park, which had a small playground. The apprehension on Nadine’s face was forgotten right away as she enthusiastically climbed the slide and mingled with a few other children.
They stayed for a while, and when Emma stood and came closer, her little friend asked, “Can we stay a bit longer here?”
Instantly, guilt pressed down on Emma’s shoulders. Taking Nadine to the playground seemed a reasonable idea at the time, but now as she looked into those despondent green eyes as it was time to return to the hotel, she wasn’t all that sure anymore. “I’m sorry, honey, but it’s time to go.”
Nadine’s face reflected the obvious disappointment. “Okay, then.”
She picked up her bag from the park bench and then looked at Emma. “Do you know my dad?”
“No, honey, I don’t. I saw him yesterday when he came to see your grandma and grandpa. But that’s it.” And boy, oh, boy was he a treat for the eyes!
With her voice sounding wary, Nadine asked, “Do you think he’ll like me?”

Aw, poor kid. I have to wonder what her grandparents told her about her father.
Hmm … good question. Thanks PT.

That last line just about broke my heart. The poor child, so unsure about her future. Emma is very compassionate.
Thank you, Chelle. It must be very scary for a little child.
So hopeful and yet afraid of disappointment. Very sweet. Good snippet.

Thank you Karen.
I felt so sorry for that child. How scared she must be.
It is a scary situation she’s in. Thanks for stopping by Elaine.
Quite intriguing. Makes me wonder why the dad was estranged from his daughter. I suspect the answer to Nadine’s final question will be “Yes!” 🙂
