Revisiting: Broken Trust
Continuing on my Throwback Thursday...my 4th fictional child. She came out last year and her sequel, Redeeming Trust is now out as well. This story started as a dream. It grew into two novels through a conversation over French fries. From the start, I pictured the talented and awkward Sam, and of course I pictured the colorful and full of life, Ali. I pictured Ben, though his picture became more clear later on...mostly...for me, this story was always about two best friends. After all, where would any of us be without our best friends.
Sam is an artist (her painting is depicted on the beautiful covers for both Broken Trust and Redeeming Trust, both designed by the Amazing Amanda Fugate). She uses her art to deal with all that has happened in her. This introduces her to Ben, an architect who is so focused on his future plans, he almost misses out on an amazing opportunity to have more than he's every dreamed of. And Ali...Ali (Ben's sister) owns a music store and wants to avoid love for as long as she possibly can. The three of them, in each other, find friendships and love that improve all of their lives and make them all stronger.
