Dreams for Stones (Dreams Saga Book 1) by
A man who’s given up on love. A woman who’s learned to let go of love too easily. It will take all the magic of serendipity, old diaries, and a children’s story to heal these two.
Caught in grief and guilt over his wife’s death, English professor Alan Francini is determined never to feel that much pain again. He avoids new relationships and keeps even his best friend at arm’s length. His major solace
is his family’s ranch south of Denver.
Children’s book editor Kathy Jamison has learned through a lifetime of separations and a broken engagement that letting go is easier than hanging on. Then she meets Alan, and for once, begins to believe a lasting relationship is possible.
But Alan panics and pushes her away–into the arms of his best friend. Now the
emotions of three people are at stake as they struggle to find a way to
transform their broken dreams into the foundation for a more hopeful future.
Next Generation Book Award Finalist.
About the author of Dreams for Stones, Ann Warner:
A former Air Force brat turned clinical chemist, toxicologist, and university professor, Ann’s life took another turn in 2001, when she began writing fiction. After completing a perfectly dreadful novel (she didn’t know it was at the time) she talked her way into a graduate writing seminar and followed that up with several years of study as she continued to write. Along the way she made friends with other writers who have supported, critiqued, and eventually praised her novels. Her debut novel, Dreams for Stones, was a finalist for the Indie Next Generation Book Award.
Ann’s novels take advantage of the many unusual settings she’s traveled to or lived in including New Zealand, Australia, Peru, San Francisco, Wrangell Alaska, Colorado, Boston, and Puerto Rico. As well, her experiences as a toxicologist have added fillips of intrigue to many of her stories.
In Ann’s novels, the consequence of choosing to love or not to love is an underlying theme, as characters face crises and complications that force them to dig deep within themselves to discover their own resilience.
