I am pleased to announce a great book release by Linda Lee Williams, an author I met during my journey! Her contemporary inspirational romance, The Depth of the Spirit, officially released in late January! Yay! That’s awesome! Congrats on your new release!
When a new book comes out, it’s always an exciting time for an author!
Linda is giving us a look at her inspirational romance, The Depth of the Spirit, today.
This is the blurb for The Depth of the Spirit:
When an accident leaves Thomas crippled and in a wheelchair, he resigns himself to life as a bachelor—not an easy thing for a young man to accept. Then fate drops Margot in his lap. Margot understands the frustrations and challenges of Thomas’ disability. She knows the pain of loss. Has serendipity brought Thomas and Margot together? Or has his dead friend’s prophecy come true? Only Kayla knows for sure…
And here is an excerpt from The Depth of the Spirit to tease you with.
Midweek, I’m mired in policy renewals and quotes. My mother quit her job as an X-ray technician to care for me. Now, she works as my assistant. The phone in the office den rings, and a man asks for Joyce. “For you, Mom,” I say. She turns from the file cabinet and picks up on her extension. I smile as she schmoozes with the client. She’s a natural.
While she’s talking, my cell sings out a Coldplay number. I swallow. Holy crap. Margot. Did her truck break down again?
“Hi, Margot. Everything okay?”
“I’ve been thinking about it, and I’ve decided we should definitely be friends.”
“Hmm. In that case, I have a favor to ask of you.”
“Really? Anything. What can I do?”
A nectar feeder hangs under the eave outside the window. Trilling, a male hummingbird flies in. He hovers, sips, and flashes his magenta throat. I draw in a breath. “Will you go to a graduation party with me a week from Saturday? If you’re not working, I mean…”
“I’d love to! Is the graduate a relative?”
“Sort of. My best friend’s kid sister.”
“Dustin?” Margot says.
I’m shocked she remembers—shocked and pleased. “Yeah. You can meet him at the party. He’s an okay guy. Better than okay, actually. You’ll like him.”
“If he’s your best friend, I’m sure I will.”
I relish the sound of her voice, the thought of seeing her, even if I am essentially fixing her up with Dustin. Lots of girls crushed on him in high school, but his heart belonged to Kayla, and it still does. Maybe Margot can change that. Although regret ripples through me at the prospect, I’m doing the right thing. I have a chance to honor Kayla’s last request, whether I imagined her visitation or not. She would want Dustin to be happy again.
My mom ends her call. I swivel away from my tabletop desk and out into the foyer. “So, can I pick you up at one, Margot?”
“Sure. Why not?” I hear the teasing smile in her voice.
“Hey, that’s my line…”
She laughs. “Let’s get together before then. Are you free Friday evening? We could meet for dinner somewhere?”
Rat-a-tat-tat goes my heart. I glance behind me, but my mom is typing at the computer. “Uh…yeah, that would be great. What did you have in mind?”
“Chili’s again? I think we should make it our place.”
Our place? There isn’t an us, is there?
“Okay,” I say. “What time?”
“Five? That way, we can beat the rush.”
“Fine with me. I’ll see you then.” I mumble goodbye before she can renege. Part of me is elated, the other part numb. Margot asked me out on a date.
What people are saying about this book:
“This is a beautiful story. The series title is a perfect description for the feelings in this story. You do not need to read the first one at all to understand what’s going on, but my advice is to read it just because it’s another amazing story by Linda.“
“It’s such a lovely, sweet story! I really enjoyed reading it. If you like feel-good stories, don’t pass this up. I loved it!“
