Their decade-long marriage has been blighted by their lack of children, and now secrets could tear this couple apart.
Follow their journey from heartbroken to houseful, and experience how Crawley Creek Ranch became a refuge for those who needed a place to plant roots. Second chances and new beginnings are a way of life at Crawley Creek.
As the prequel to the Crawley Creek Series, Beginnings is short, but oh so sweet! It packs a punch in the few pages it contains, creating a bond between the characters and reader. I could not help but feel a strong sense of sorrow for poor Sera and her diagnosis of being unable to conceive. Her husband, Abe, showed how deeply he loves her with every action, every word, and every thought he had. The ending had me crying like a baby! What a way to introduce these characters! All I can say is well done, Ms. King! I am going to have to read the rest of the series if this tiny, short, novella is this darn good!
