Flaherty’s Crossing

Thursday, April 15, 2010

“Flaherty’s Crossing” begins as Kate Flaherty is rushing to her estranged father’s deathbed.  She makes it there before he passes, but he appears to be incoherently drifting in and out of the past.  Kate carries a tremendous amount of anger towards her father. After her mother tragically died at age thirty-six, she blamed him for her death.  Holding a grudge against him and his inability to express his feelings towards her, Kate saw her father as an enigma.

At the same time that Kate is losing her father, she is about to lose her husband. This loss would not be to death.  Just as Kate’s father withheld himself from her, Kate has been withholding herself from her husband, Drew. Their marriage is on the rocks and neither knows how to reach out to the other.  A car accident changes everything. When Kate runs her car off a road to avoid hitting a deer, a strange encounter with a mysterious man in an old diner begins to wake her up from her apathetic state. Realizing that he could have lost her forever, also forces Drew to know that he does not want this to happen.

Together they decide to try to salvage their marriage.  They start looking at what is truly important to each other.  Drew begins to see that being trapped in an unrewarding job so that he can afford their big expensive house and fancy BMW is not worth it.  The couple also has other serious issues to contend with.  As Kate deals with her father’s passing, she begins to learn more about his life. She discovers that the family secrets ran very deep.  Finding mementos that he had saved of her, shows her how much her father really loved her.  She begins to see that she has been making the same mistakes in her marriage that her father did in his.  She knows that she needs to make changes so that she does not end up like her parents did.

“Flaherty’s Crossing” by Kaylin McFarren is a beautiful story. The author does an incredible job of presenting the story in vivid detail.  We are taken into the minds and hearts of the characters. As you read, you will feel the same anguish that they each felt in dealing with their own issues.  In your heart, you will also feel their love and their hope for a better future.  Even though it is a fictional story, it made me reflect on my own life, and how I shouldn’t wait until it is too late to let people that I love know how I feel, or to apologize if I need to. This is a novel that is written with exceptional quality.  Readers will truly enjoy this story.

Hi everyone!

First, I want to extend my greatest thanks to all you wonderful readers!  I wouldn't be here without you.  Wild Hearts was on Siren's Best Seller list for over a month!  I can't tell you how happy I am to have that honor! 

Second, I'm running extremely behind on getting my website up and running.  I will be sure to let everyone know once that happens.  Hopefully, it'll be done in a few weeks.

Third, Wild Hearts and now available for your Kindle!  If you've been waiting to get your copy, don't miss out :) 

And finally, I'm working diligently on the second part of the Blood Moon Legacy, as well as the third.  Hang tight!  I've been having a blast working these stories, but I've encountered a couple snags that have caused some delays.  I have very stubborn characters to contend with, lol ;)

On that-or more rather, those-note(s), feel free to drop me any comments!  I always look forward to hearing from readers :)

Leo Dunne has been searching his entire life for the one person born just for him. He finds her working in his own company, but the shy little Ruby Halloway constantly hides from him. He hatches a devilish plot with her best friend to bring her out of her shell, and the result proves her desire is more than a match for his own.

Ruby has had the hots for her boss for some time now, but she knows business and pleasure shouldn't mix. While that can't stop a girl from dreaming, she sticks by her guns and does her best never to be alone with the handsome CEO. Until the company masquerade party, where she discovers a passion with him that leaves a mark on her soul.

A family emergency calls Leo away, and rather than spend one night out of Ruby's arms, he convinces her to go with him. With his brother's life on the line, it's vital she learn how to deal with who, and what, her new lover really is…before it's too late.
