Today on Sneak Peek Sunday, I’m sharing a snippet from Heartstrings…that’s bound to pull on your heartstrings. Country superstar Seth Kendall meets his biggest fan for the first time–the girl who has no idea he’s her father.
He rubbed his goatee and forced air through his constricting voice box to form words. “You must be…Emily?” He swallowed the lump in his throat and painted on a smile. “I’m guessing you already know who I am.”
But she didn’t know him at all. Dear God, he was this girl’s father.
She swung the door open, and the shock turned into the biggest and brightest smile he’d ever seen. The force of it hit his solar plexus like a fist.
She held out her hand. “I’m Emily Ritter. Hi.”
He looked at her hand, and a million different feelings tumbled through him–fear, joy, amazement, excitement and so many more, he couldn’t keep track. He doubted a blind man seeing a sunrise for the first time could feel this happy. Trembling, he encircled her warm fingers with his big hand. You’re my little girl.
