This week’s Sneak Peek comes from my upcoming contemporary western romance, Heartstrings. It’s from the prologue. Four-year-old hero, Seth, is with his father as they look down into his mother’s casket…
“Momma said she hated us.”
The next morning after she’d said that, Momma wouldn’t wake up. The sheriff had come and asked Daddy a bunch of questions.
Daddy held him close and kissed the top of his head. “Your momma loved you, Seth. She just…just…” His voice cracked and he sounded like he was crying again. “She just never forgave me for not letting her go off to Nashville.”
“I was afraid she’d get famous and forget about us.” Daddy pulled him close, his voice so low and deep he had to listen close to hear the words. “Instead, she felt trapped here and hated me for denying her dream.”
If Momma hated Daddy, she probably hated him, too.
Let me know what you think? Was that just the saddest thing? Next week I’ll give you another peek into the life of mega superstar country singer Seth Kendall.
