About the Book

All her life Julie Porter has had a passion for art. Although she loves her job as a Physical Therapist Assistant, it’s her desire to create art that continues to become deeper and stronger with time. For more than a year numerous changes have occurred within the Porter family. But the past few months they’d been coming faster and more life altering than any of them could have anticipated. When Julie and her husband accept new jobs, additional work responsibilities create tension between them at home as Stephen’s erratic behavior and obsession with his new position takes precedence over everything in their lives.

Torn between her love for her husband and intense feelings for Jerome . . . the owner of Olcott’s Art Shop . . . Julie’s filled with uncertainty as obstacles devastate her life. She struggles to follow her heart as she watches her world crumble around her. Over time, Julie learns two things will provide the stability she desperately needs amidst all the upheaval in her life. One is her love for art as she continues to pursue her dreams. The other is her relationship with Jerome as he helps her understand that her art is her destiny.
