“This was your family’s restaurant?” Erica asked.
I nodded, silent, reliving that horrible night: My fiance Haydn’s pushing me into the cellar and commanding me to keep silent, no matter what.”
Erica understood. “You never saw him again?”
I shook my head. “Two survivors said he’d been captured. But I never could find out.”
“Look!” Erica grabbed my arm. “Someone’s in the upstairs window — looking at us.”
“Some scavenger,” I said, brushing away tears. But then I looked more closely, catching my breath. “It can’t be,” I whispered.
“It’s him!” I waved frantically: “Haydn!”
He waved, smiled, and in the same moment, vanished. I looked at Erica. Her shocked face assured me I hadn’t imagined him.
“Finally … after all these painful years … we’ve said goodbye.”
Friday Fictioneers writing challenge
Discovering a terrorist plot and risking your life to stop it before three U.S. cities are destroyed, receiving a visitation from an angel with important information from the Lord, falling in love with someone halfway around the world — through the help of a rusty old computer — and learning that it’s never too late to give your life to Jesus Christ. What more could any reader want from one book?
QUENTON’S HONOR (by me) has it all, and it’s just waiting at the Amazon Kindle Store to be snatched up by readers for their Kindles, Nooks, iPads, tablets, iPhones, and Androids. The novel has been out in paperback edition for several years, but this month saw its debut in digital format, and it’s available only on Amazon.
If you’re looking for a fresh, inspiring reading experience, check it out.
It’s worth $3.99 — even if I do say so myself.
You can also visit the “Quenton’s Honor” Facebook page to meet the characters and learn more about the book.
(Paperback version is currently available from St. Ellen Press, but will also be available on Amazon in June.)
