Abandoned by her mother, nine year-old Princess finds herself alone in the swamp with her absentee father, who travels the river to make a living. Then she finds Cree at her door, the boy who lives two houses down on their tiny patch of land. He’s twelve and strong, the first boy she’s ever seen, and he invites her to dinner with his baby brothers, because Cree, like Princess, is mostly alone in the world. That evening his eyes sparkle at Princess for the very first time, and Princess’ life truly begins.
From that day forward Cree and Princess work together to survive and raise Cree’s brothers. Occasionally hindered by Cree’s abusive father, they learn about life and growing up through her dad’s extensive library as well as the lessons they figure out on their own. But life in the swamp isn’t easy for two kids. They endure flooding storms, illness, and alligators along the way. Cree longs to care for his brothers and the girl he’s falling in love with by traveling like his dad, but Princess is terrified he’ll never return, just like her mother never returned. And yet they have to agree and work together, because neither can survive alone.
Come visit a quieter place and time and drift down the river in the coming of age/sweet romance series Trilogy on the River.
Trevor is the son of a Sanctuary staff family who shows up unannounced and discovers his parents have never told anyone on the island of his existence. Having fought the justice system and lost, Trevor is broken and exhausted and hasn’t the strength to put together a new life anywhere else, but when the retreat center staff catches wind of the lies that define his past, they don’t want him, either. The worst heartbreak is that his family believes the lies as much as anyone.
Yvonne works in the retreat center kitchen, and she’s content there. With her sunny disposition and ability to be content with the mundane, she thinks her life will be good and remain good until the end of her days. Rarely does she get involved with guests, believing feeding them is enough. For the lady who believes good always comes from good, meeting Trevor, for whom life seems cruelly unfair, rocks her core beliefs.
Yvonne may not understand how Trevor’s life fell apart, but her heart knows this man needs help and gentleness. Stepping out of her black and white world and into Trevor’s life of gray is the most difficult thing she’s ever done, and she isn’t sure it’s what God wants from her. At the heart of her struggles are questions of who God is and what he expects from her, and those questions shake her very foundations.
Join Yvonne in the battle for Trevor’s heart and soul, a battle that will change the lives of everyone he touches. St. Ninian’s Sanctuary series, small-town contemporary Christian romance with a mysterious island twist.
