Beyond The Storm
The compelling story of a disheartened woman, her memories, and the agonizing fragility and enormous strength of love.
After her fiancé is killed by a wildfire that destroys nearly everything important to her, Emily Evans prepares to leave her hometown of Rock Springs, Colorado. She sells her gift shop and hopes that by moving 2,200 miles away, she can escape the constant reminders of what she’s lost. She could have ended up anywhere, but she is drawn to a nine-bedroom Queen Anne Victorian with a wraparound porch, overlooking the sea in Seaport, Maine. The secluded coastal village is exactly what she’s looking for—a whimsical, charming spot, picture-perfect in every way. Here Emily envisions a new life, a new beginning, and she hopes to find the peace of mind needed to heal from the devastating loss of her beloved fiancé. Beyond the Storm bursts with suspense and emotional intensity as Emily faces a violent thunderstorm right after moving into her new home. She has little confidence that her timeworn house will hold up during such an intense storm, and then she begins to sense a presence in the home. At first, the supernatural occurrences seem harmless, but they take a nasty turn following her discovery of hundred-year-old hidden journals—leading her to John Stone, the handsome, unmarried local physician. As a mutual attraction develops between the two, Emily struggles to make peace with her tragic past so she can once again be free and open to the possibility of love.
