"People speak glibly about life changing moments. Some truly qualify. You propose marriage and are accepted. You hear, 'You're hired' or 'You're fired' and your future shifts instantly. The doctor says 'malignant' (or something else life-changing) and everything is different. But anyone who has ever lived through it will tell you: It is profoundly shattering to learn, in one instant, that everything you thought was true about a loved one (my words: or perhaps your own life) is actually a lie. (Your entire world is turned upside down - what you thought about yourself, and what gave meaning to your life). The world rocks on its axis; when it is finally steady again, you are in a strange place that resembles, but is totally unlike the place you were in just a moment earlier."- Diana B Henriques from 'Wizard of Lies; Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust'A story of renewal and transformation: a transformation of heart. Eternal truths. True or not?? Possibly! Hope for a new beginning - one not divided by the past but with hope for the future. In a phrase, A NEW HEART.

I want to continually test my own writing "limits", the "boundaries of my imagination." *And whenever c came to a cross roads in his life about which path to take, he meditated and prayed and followed the voice within, the indwelling Holy Spirit. What would Jesus do (WWJD) in this situation? Then he usually followed, not his mind (logic), but his heart, as well as the highest thought, the highest possible choice. So c chose to write about the road less travelled, the path of the pursuit of PEACE. Through attempting in some small way to break down barriers and divisions between peoples, one mind, one heart, one tiny step at a time. And every great journey starts with a single small step.Solet the story begin... # #PROLOGUEA TALE OF TWO CITIESIt was a beautiful spring day in September in the year 1988, the sky overhead a clear blue with not a cloud in sight. Desperately trying to find some answers to what was happening in their life, the middle-aged couple had just come from the neurologist in Perth, Western Australia. Shattered , they walked out of the 2nd floor building back to the bright red new Holden company car parked in busy Mill Point Road overlooking the shimmering Swan river. Feeling so alone in a new country, they felt shattered at hearing the news, not knowing where their lives were headed. Traumatized they didn't know where to turn... or what to do next... just devoid of hope
Zoe Luce is a successful interior designer in the Arizona town of Whispering Springs who's developed an unusual career specialty-helping recently divorced clients redesign their homes, to help them forget the past and start anew. But Zoe knows that some things can't be covered up with a coat of paint. And when she senses that one of her clients may be hiding a dark secret, she enlists P.I. Ethan Truax to find the truth.
Working together, they solve the mystery . . . and barely escape with their lives. But Ethan's exquisite detection skills are starting to backfire on Zoe: she never wanted to let him find out about her former life; she never wanted to reveal her powerful, inexplicable gift for sensing the history hidden within a house's walls; she never wanted him to know that "Zoe Luce" doesn't really exist. She never wanted to fall in love with him.
Now, no matter how much she resists, Ethan may be her only hope-because the people she's been running from have found her. And just when Zoe dares to dream of a normal life and a future with the man she loves, her own past starts to shadow her every step-and threatens to take her back into a nightmare.
