Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Publish)

Who is safer, a 23-year-old woman who plays the glass harmonica on the streets of New Orleans and lives in a commune-style house with other free spirits, con artists and petty thieves like herself—or a rising television weathercaster who resides in a luxury high rise in Chicago with her emotionally volatile husband? When Nevaeh Thera gives up her street life to move in with her cousin, star meteorologist Dawn Ann McKnight and her photographer husband, Derek Baldwin, a life-threatening truth is exposed and both women learn that you can’t start over, but you can start again.
Reviews
Kirkus Reviews

“Witnessing Nevaeh’s growth from a flaky, treehouse-dwelling, rat-keeping hotel maid to a mature young woman—despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles—makes reading this novel worthwhile….

Well-written, moving new adult/women’s fiction with a meaningful moral.”
