L.J. Holmes
In her many Guises.

Wednesday, February 16, 2011


Muse Publishing, Inc, is rapidly proving it ONLY gives us the best, and that is certainly the case here.

Anika Henry is a registered nurse married to an

Air Force Pilot and

a mom. Life is good...maybe too good. Could it be she is thumbing her nose at

the Fates with just how happy she is?

Tragedy has this awful way of finding you leaving you asking
why? Why was she now a widow? Why was she now a single parent? Why would her son never know what a wonderful man his father had been?

Grief grips you and

it squeezes. No matter where you go, you see him, remember him, ache for him. But you cannot give in to

the endless pit of

silent shouts because you have a son, a son who does not understand...a son who needs you to be whole...or at least pretend to be whole...but not here!

Ana moves them to Fort Collins, CO, the mountains for that new life she is going to build with her child.

Oh Dear LORD! The Fates, vicious hags, MUST really have it in for her. Is there no end to the level of what they want her to endure?

A hit 'n' run driver...no...it can NOT be true.

Burying her son.

Death, why has it left her behind? How is she to continue when there is nothing left to continue for?

Work...somehow Ana manages to live one day after another after another.

And then it happens. The child,

a little girl, the father

Dan Morrison, his fear palpable; his determination his daughter will live, unswerving.

Ana, assigned to care for the child, over time builds a relationship...one she had never expected to have again.

Dan teaches her to open her darkest places and let his light in, but

the Fates are so not done with her...
