Loss. Music. Hope.

Since The Flight of Hope was announced, I couldn’t wait to read it. HJ Bellus and I are “boot” sisters and she had told me about this book when we were in Kentucky. I knew it was different, but as a reader/writer/woman, that’s what helps us grow. Change helps us evolve and become something great. Can you imagine if there was no change in our lives?

At the end of November, I made a few changes. I decided that my full marathon would be bumped up to January instead of March. I also decided to keep all of my businesses going.  I knew if I went all in with marathon training there would be no way to be super momma like some believe. Selfishly, I knew that would also allow me time to read over Christmas break and you guessed it. The Flight of Hope was #1 on my list.

As the break approached, I packed my kindle in my backpack. I was going to read any free moment I had. I didn’t care if it was sitting in my car during my planning period or at Carlee’s dance studio.

Life can be hectic….
Well… have you ever wanted to do something so bad but it’s like there are not enough hours in the day? Y’all I had been running four businesses, marathon training, teaching, and being a mom/wife. How is it that I minimize things and I can’t find time for a book? I’m still clueless on this one.  Have you ever felt this way?

20993043_10211098205996780_761227042784888143_nThe week of Christmas I was determined to start and finish it. Normally, I can read a book within a day or two. It took almost a full week, but y’all, it was so worth it.
Have you ever loved someone so much you can’t image what life would be like after they are gone? What if it was the two most import people in your life? For me, the thought is devastating. I couldn’t imagine Billy and Carlee not living this life with me. They are my heart and soul.  However, we know that God has a plan for all of us and he knows what’s best.
In the Flight of Hope, Marlee loses her heart and soul. She can’t see a light in the darkness.  Jed, a country music star, is struggling with an outside force that will tear your heart out. The two cross paths and the bond created is hope. This story will make your heart hurt, break, shatter, but the light of hope will heal it all.  If you are looking for a novel that will make you feel the entire spectrum of emotions then I highly recommend you download this book today.

Life thoughts…
So many times we as women put everything we have into our families that we lose who we are as individuals. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all, but we also need to take time for ourselves… to feel our own cup so to speak.

For me, I do a daily devotion each morning and run 3-4 days a week. Saturday is always a long run day with friends and it’s so therapeutic. Some days I’ll go to the coffee shop alone and read a book.

As women, we need time to fuel our soul. Tell me… how do you refill your cup?

Synopsis

Sergeant Jeremiah Abbner died in the line of duty serving his country. Or at least that’s what the newspapers said…

The US Government handed him a new identity, and strict orders not to make contact with anyone from his past. As far as society was concerned Sergeant Jeremiah Abbner was dead, and buried six feet under.

Not having contact with his ex-wife would be easy. She was a manipulator and a cheater.

Not seeing his daughter on the other hand would devastate him…

Beau Morgan, aka Jeremiah, settles down in a town far away from everything he’s ever known. Coping with the trauma he’s experienced and discovering a new life Beau finds himself the most aggressive he’s ever been. His blood simmers with rage while his fists are thirsty to let it all out .

In the middle of his own living hell he never expected to run into an old familiar face. And to top it off, one who recognized him as Jeremiah.

He’s vowed never to love again, but as circumstances land him in the arms of a woman, Jenni Lee, this time he may not have a choice, as she rarely takes no for an answer.

Can Beau Morgan control his temper long enough to settle into his new life? Or will resentment taint him forever?

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3

Weddings are were you celebrate and watch your friends and family take a big step in their lives.  It’s not where you’re life is supposed to end.  This is exactly what happens to Jenni.  When her current boyfriend is beating her to death, Beau, part of the wait staff comes to her rescue.

Beau takes care of Jenni, brings her back to health, but it’s obvious that their relationship goes from healthy to unhealthy in no time.  Beau has a past.  One he’s not allowed to discuss, and Jenni is known for making terrible decisions.  Will Beau finally open up to her?  Will Jenni realize she deserves more?

Her Solider is about finding the other half that makes you whole, putting the past in the past, and creating a future where both the past and future collide.
