Grace After the Storm

by Sandy Sinnett

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Women’s Fiction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

 Brad’s brother recently found the love of his life, and now he too longs to find his one.  No one seems to compare to his first love from years ago, though – the woman he left behind for money and a career.  To remind him of her love, though, on what would have been their wedding anniversary, Brad writes her a letter. Never mailed. Never read…until this year, after the storm ends.

Hannah’s estate is in foreclosure – unable to keep her family’s estate after her parents’ death.  Sparks begin to fly however after the estate is purchased and the new owner arrives.  Not only was Brad the love of her life, but he’s also the man who walked out on her eight years ago.  At first sight, Hannah’s grandmother believes their love still exists, and even as her health fades she works to help Hannah see the good in Brad.

Hannah must deal with painful memories from her past as she is forced to work with Brad and save her estate, but will her stubborn pride cause her to lose him again?

She begins to see Brad in a new light, and the love she felt for him long ago is reborn.  When Hannah’s ‘little sister’ Clare discovers Brad’s secret, though, a storm of events will begin that may destroy their only chance for love, and may risk Hannah’s life in the process. Brad and Hannah will face both tragedy and loss as they rekindle their love, remembering that grace always follows the storm.

Interview with the Author:

1. How long have you been writing?

Since 2012 on novels; Started writing poetry in high school and continued into college.

2. How long have you been a published author?

Since April 2014

3. What titles do you have available?

‘Hope in the Rain’, and ‘Grace After the Storm’

4. What made you choose the subject of this book?

I’ve met more people recently that have found true love with an old high school or college boyfriend. It seems that in most cases, their love didn’t work out then, but that’s where their story began. I suppose in some sense I based it on my own past high school love…the one that got away.

5. Do you have any new titles coming soon?

‘Faith From Falling Snow’ – third and final installment to this trilogy. ‘Sandcastles at Sunset’ – a story of second chance love after divorce of 25 year marriage.

6. What is your favourite genre and why?

My favorite genre to read is YA/Fantasy. I can’t write it, which is why I love to read it. I also love romance novels with substance and a plot – Karen Kingsbury, Nicholas Sparks, etc.

7. What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?

Creating characters personalities, attitudes, looks, charisma, grit, passions, heart, etc. Bringing them to life on paper that makes the reader feel like they can relate to them, and fall in love with them – hate them, etc.

8. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?

Karen Kingsbury. I believe we are of the same faith, and both a fan of romance blooming in the most random ways.

9. Where can readers find you on the web?
