Evangeline Sayre, a schoolteacher with age old values and a new age heart, tangles with Dr. Grant Norris, a handsome scientist turned program administrator from Washington, DC. Eve, the romantic, believes in angels, hope and the power of dreams. Grant, the realist, is more down to earth.
Unable to accept Grant's denial of NIH funding for her Appalachian "Dreamcatcher Project," Eve lures Grant to Deer Valley in the southern mountains for a site visit. That's where the fun begins.
A love story with many twists and turns, Grant Denied celebrates traditional Southern values, the spirit of life and family unity. This novel is a "must read" from Jennifer Sinclair, one of the most exciting voices of the New South.

Grant had anticipated the head of the Center for Cosmic Vision to be either a flighty hippie wearing a gauze skirt or a graying grandmother carrying an astrological chart. Instead he saw a beautiful woman dressed to the nines in a tailored blue suit and spectator pumps. He liked best her bow-shaped mouth and her big blue eyes. Intrigued by the sexy energy she exuded, he debated whether he should hold her for security or detain her for his own pleasure.
"Is something wrong?" he asked.
Eve shook her head and stammered, "No...it's just that from the terseness of your letter, I thought you'd be older...and..."
"And what?" Bald and stupid? Is that what you thought, Ms. Sayre?"
"Oh, no, Dr. Norris, not really." But that was exactly what she'd thought, except her imagination had added a few other characteristics. Like a yellowing white shirt, a pot belly and a fondness for a rubber stamp that printed "GRANT DENIED." The man standing in front of her seemed human, almost kind, not at all the monster she'd expected to challenge. He was young, athletic and handsome , and he looked good in khaki pants, a silk shirt and a bright tie.
