516EEwfusoL._SL500_AA300_Shortly after midnight I got out of bed giving up the struggle to understand my emotions. Like my response to Cole’s music, I could find no simple explanation for the unfamiliar longings inside of me, but hoped that a few minutes in the night air would clear my head a little. Without bothering to turn on a light, I reached for my robe, stepped into my slippers. Then unlocked the sliding glass door which opened onto a small wooden balcony. The night breeze was cool against my face as I moved to the railing and stared into the darkness…………

I need to see you…Cole’s words played in my mind like the melody of one of his songs. The fact he had said “need” and not “want” filled me with a pleasant ache. To me, needing had always seemed more like a necessity – like sunshine and breathing. “I need to see you, too.” I had actually said that. And what’s more, it was true. As I turned away from the railing, low rhythmic sound suddenly gnawed at my senses, and I tensed listening. Somewhere in the blackness, dissonant voices pulsed through the night air like some primeval heartbeat deep within the forest. Searching the dark hillside above the cabin, my eyes fixed on a faint orange glow filtering through the heavy growth of fir and aspen. Sound and light pulsed from the spot, filling my mind with a strange sense of uneasiness. Who was out there? And why? My hands gripped the railing as the voices rose and fell in eerie cadence.

Megan Collier is on assignment to write and photograph the arts in Colorado for a national magazine, American Preforming Arts. As she goes to the different performances she sees peoples lives of love and happiness and is frustrated with her life and the loneliness she feels. A chance encounter on a mountain road changes her life for ever. As she gets to know singer songwriter Cole McLean and his son Cody, her loneliness dissolves but does she have the fortitude and faith to give his love a chance. Will she run away again? Winding through this story is the love of beautiful music and the way it affects peoples lives. Music, mystery, and danger, what more could you ask from a great book?

Dorothy Keddington writes with word pictures I identify with and love. This is one of my all time favorite books.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my
    own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Appreciate it

      You have to buy a domain name first then you can build your site. Godaddy has domain names and Hostgator does too.
      I use WordPress for my website but there are other platforms to use as well.
      I just like wordpress because I started with it and am familiar with is.
      Good luck

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
