There Will Your Heart Be

A New-Adult love story about redemption and the power of God's grace.
It's 1944. All Annalaura wants is to get through college, marry Eddie, and settle into a "normal" life. But World War 2 is ablaze, and Eddie is sent overseas. Annalaura takes a break from missing him by attending a New Year's Eve celebration, and her life is forever altered when she suffers a physical assault.
Now, with a broken spirit and an unwanted pregnancy, all she can do is go away. She leaves her life, her family, and Eddie behind. It's better for them that way, isn't it? Annalaura is left starting her life over, on her own, separated from everything she loves. And she almost thinks she can make it.
Until she's confronted with Jesus' command to forgive when her attacker resurfaces, looking for absolution.
But is it possible to forgive the unforgivable? Annalaura doesn't think so. Instead, she sets out to remake herself and seize the opportunity for revenge.

*Note the subject of sexual assault has been carefully portrayed in a non-graphic way, however discretion is advised if you feel the content may be unsettling.

A Bit About Me...

I write about Christians for Christians. Some people would call me a Jesus freak. I read a whole lot. I have cats. I'm doing keto and I believe a cheeseburger isn't complete without a fried egg on top. I live in Tennessee with my husband. I'm paraplegic. I like history and the Philadelphia Eagles. And Snoopy. I'm overly fond of baked goods, especially bear claws with cream cheese in the middle. I adore old black-and-white movies. I've spent a great deal of time thinking about stories when I was supposed to be doing something else, so I thought maybe I should write them down.

As the story opens, Annalaura and Eddie are at the theatre, watching Casablanca for the 13th time. Check out the best parody ever...

I'm trying to add one classic to my reading roster each month. It's very cool to see how writing styles have evolved, and such a treasure trove of story-telling! 

What defines a classic anyway? There are a number of definitions in the dictionary. Is it a book that's still being read a century later? Or books assigned in school? What makes them noteworthy? I guess it's a matter of opinion.

Is there a reading list anywhere specific to classics?
