Jane Eltonabout this book: Excerpt
"After talking with some of the marginally employed young adults, I am even more cognizant of how fortunate we are," said Olivia.
"Most forms of poverty are man-made," cautioned Eugene, "because people don't take advantage of the educational opportunities in this country."
Olivia nodded, aware Eugene was about to make a speech.
"It galls me to know people in third world countries don't even have a school to go to, and they come to this country and get jobs and make a successful life for themselves. Too many people in this country," he went on, "fail to take advantage of our education system and end up living like nomads and expecting handouts." He was getting worked up as he echoed his parents' thoughts.
"I agree," she soothed, "but many people don't have the means, connections or know-how to drastically change their lives, Gene, and these are tough economic times. I want to help."
• What Is This Book About?
Four years ago, college graduates Olivia Parker and Eugene Blankenship cemented their relationship in marriage, and recently quit their professional jobs to invest in a restaurant in a thriving upper-middle class community. Olivia's participation as a mentor to teenagers in her church program is having devastating results: she increasingly feels guilty and hypocritical and has a hidden past that could end her marriage. When Eugene discovers the truth, he walks out on Olivia and demands a divorce. Shattered, Olivia seeks love and support from Brandon West, ironically the man who months before robbed the Blankenship's restaurant with a gun. When Eugene returns to re-unite with Olivia, Brandon West declares that he is the better man!
• What Inspired Me to Write This Book?
Curiosity! Do you want to know everything about a partner's past? Are you entitled to know?
• How Long Did It Take to Write This Book?
While writing a main story, I compile notes on 2 or 3 other stories at the same time. Sometimes it's a fresh idea, and sometimes it doesn't fit well in the main story. Thus, the beginning and ending of a new story could be years apart.
