Read an Excerpt: 

Lake Tranquil was

vast.  So much so that Patience couldn’t

see where it ended or began.  Despite its

size, it was deserted.  She was the only

human in sight and she loved the thought of being so alone, immersed in the

beauty of nature.  An occasional bird

flitted in and out of the trees, or swooped down to land at the water’s

edge.  In the distance, a rabbit ran

through the trees, its tail bobbed, flashing white as it ran for cover.

Trees lined craggy mountains that surrounded the lake.  They were thick, green and tall, and reached

to the shoreline; only a small wavering line of pebble-covered beach sat

between the shimmering waters and the forest.  

It was heavenly. 

It wasn’t the first time Patience had been to Lake

Tranquil.  Once, as a child, she had

visited it with her mother and enjoyed a week of blissful freedom away from the

chaos of life.  Now here, fleeting

memories flooded back.  Swimming in the

lake as her mother sat on the deck and read. 

Running through the trees playing hide and seek, and sitting on the

shore as the sun set.  Watching the stars

appear overhead as her mother cooked fish over a smoky fire.  It was a time in her life that stuck in her

mind, when her mother had been truly happy and content. 

It was why Patience was here. 

For

her mother.To try to be closer to her, to try to understand her.To try to find

some peace.
