Dreams of Falling

On the banks of the North Santee River stands a moss-draped oak that was once entrusted with the dreams of three young girls. Into the tree’s trunk, they placed their greatest hopes, written on ribbons, for safekeeping–including the most important one: Friends forever, come what may. But life can waylay the best of intentions…nine years ago, a humiliated Larkin Lanier fled Georgetown, South Carolina, knowing she could never go back. But when she finds out that her mother has disappeared, she realizes she has no choice but to return to the place she both loves and dreads–and to the family and friends who never stopped wishing for her to come home.Dreams of Falling

The Intermission

The unshakeable confidence Cass Coyne felt on her wedding day is gone, and, as a child of divorce, she’s terrified of beginning a family with the wrong partner.

But these are merely minor challenges in an otherwise healthy relationship. So it comes as a shock to Jonathan when Cass suddenly suggests a marital intermission: a six-month separation during which they’ll figure out if they truly are well matched and if the comfortable life they’ve built together is really the one they want.The Intermission
