Synopsis: After nearly 28 years being the best wife and mother she knew how to be, Deanna and her dog Jake find themselves hundreds of miles away and on their own. But what will the future hold for her now? How will she redefine herself?
Join Deanna on her journey along Scenic Highway 30A on Florida's Emerald Coast. Here she will form new friendships, explore beautiful towns and natural coastal habitats, find a unique connection to her past, and learn about the dark world of domestic violence as she embarks on her quest for purpose.
Set along Scenic Highway 30A in Florida, readers meet a host of characters. Each with a special story to share on their quest to start over, make new friends, and find peace. After both of her daughters leave for college, Deanna decides she needs a fresh start. Although her relationship with her husband is on good terms, they have drifted apart over the years. Taking her dog Jake, Deanna heads to the coast. A place she remembers as a child. One where she felt love, joy and most importantly peace. After arriving in 30A, Deanna, with the help of Jake, quickly makes a new friend which leads to the additional friendships of a vast array of families and individuals in the area. With the help of her new friends Deanna begins the journey of living a life with purpose.
Halcyon Promise is a well-written captivating read about building lasting friendships and discovering all that life has to offer. It's also about helping others and overcoming difficult pasts so the darkness doesn't dictate the future. I enjoyed the many characters and found myself intrigued by their lives. I felt as though I was on a quest right along with Deanna (and the others) as she searched for life's plan.
I recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
