Fiction

A spoiled teenaged girl overcomes unnecessary guilt for her mother's death while doing mission work in the mountains of California.

Amazon

Grace, hope, and healing intersect in the California mountains.

 

From the moment eighteen-year-old Kim Hartlinger steps off the plane from a mission trip to a remote Mexican village, her journey takes a turn for the worse. As she collides with the biggest challenge of her young life—and faith—Kim struggles with haunting questions and recurring nightmares. . .all the while trying to hide a deep, dark secret.

 

Will Kim find the hope and healing she needs? . . . Or is her broken spirit beyond repair?


Excerpt

“Kim! Look out!”

Aleesha’s scream almost gave me a heart attack as it split the early afternoon lull and reverberated throughout the Skyfly Departures Terminal at San Diego International Airport.

Before I could figure out what I was supposed to look out for, my feet started sliding gracelessly across the floor. Was this one of those California earthquakes I’d heard so much about?

But how could it be when I seemed to be the only object shaking or moving?

As I teetered and tottered to maintain my balance, I felt like a pedestrian who’s stepped on an unexpected patch of icy sidewalk. . .and never stopped sliding.

I didn’t have a chance to think about protecting the arm I’d broken in Mexico a couple of weeks earlier. I was too concerned with not breaking my neck this time.

Just as I stopped skating out of control and started regaining my stability, I made the mistake of shifting my weight the tiniest bit. That motion offset my center of gravity just enough to make both feet shoot out from under me. Although Aleesha had gotten close enough to grasp my unbroken arm, she couldn’t hold onto it.

I wish I could say her valiant effort served as a parachute slowing my fall, but truth be known, I probably more closely resembled a jumper whose chute has failed to open.

Reader Reviews for "Lost in Dreams"

Reviewed by Roger Bruner 7/10/2012
This is the second title in the Altered Hearts series, Barbour Publishing's attempt to break into the Young Adult market. The series ended prematurely, however, with at least three additional books begun either in manuscript form or in my head--plus a completed prequel to the series. I hope to finish those other manuscripts sometime and--if no other publisher wants to complete Barbour's series--hopefully I can at least release them as e-books.
