Where There's A Will
It's here. In my hands. Ready to be signed.
That's right. My fourth book is published and available on Amazon and at a book signing after services at St. Jakobi this coming weekend.
So I thought I'd share a little bit of it here today.
As she was about push the box out the door and into the living room, a small framed photo sitting on the night stand on the far side of the bed caught her eye. A younger Rolf sat on a chair, while a young bride stood behind him with her hand resting on his shoulder.
She walked around the end of the bed and picked up the picture, staring for a moment at his late wife, Eve. She was beautiful, with long blond hair swept back into an old fashioned style. Her dress looked like it might have been an antique, ivory lace creating a high collar and long cuffs that topped a pair of fingerless gloves. As she turned to pack the picture among the clothing in the box, she saw that it had been sitting atop a well worn bible. The binding was somewhat tattered, several pages sticking out at odd angles as if they had come loose. Without another thought, Katie picked it up with care, then skirted back around the bed to pack the two items in the box.
Just as she pulled a shirt around the picture frame, a shrill scream rent the air.
“What?” she cried, almost tripping over the box in her haste to get out of the room. “What’s going on?” she shouted as she ran through the house, seemingly empty of any people. She skidded to a stop as she flung open the door, her heart missing a beat at the scene in front of her.
