Melanie Charleston pulled into her home church parking lot. She had mixed emotions, it had been a few years since she’d been back. Even though it was her sister’s wedding, she knew the day wouldn’t pass without someone questioning her about the secret she’s kept for so long.

“Mom, are we getting out of the car, or you just gonna sit here daydreaming?” twelve-year-old Jeremiah asked, impatiently, breaking her train of thought.

Melanie exhaled, looking over at her son. “We’re getting out baby; sorry, mom’s mind was somewhere else.”

Jeremiah smirked. “You think! Is everything okay?” He asked in a sharp tone.

“Baby, everything’s fine. I was just wondering what your daddy’s doing.”

Jeremiah laughed sarcastically. “Probably stuck in some boring meeting.”

“Hey, stop it; that’s going to be you one day.”

He shook his head stubbornly. “I don’t think so; not me, mom. I’m goin’ to the NBA. I told you I’m gonna be the next Lebron James; holla.”

Tamara: Mir gefällt die Geschichte

Molly: I wasn’t sure if I wanted to start this one as the characters are a bit younger but I wanted to see if this poor girl would finally be able to be free of abuse and open to accept love (family) and be able to heal. It’s is great so far, minimal spelling errors, I think the Spanish isn’t necessary ...

jjapes: Gelungene Story. Hier und da ein paar Wort und Satz Fehler-lässt sich aber dennoch flüssig lesen. Danke dir fürs teilen deiner Phantasie!

Saloni Acharya: The whole series is so good. It’s like you can’t keep it down without reading it the whole way and then start the next one. Time flies and you don’t realise it’s late night and you have to go to sleep 😂. The characters are awesome with strong plots and love every couple. 😍🥰
