Rebel Texas musician, Luke Stone, refuses to finger the real bank robbers and loses everything he treasures in life to the forty foot walls and iron bars of Leavenworth Penitentiary. How is it possible that, in America, a man can be convicted of a crime he did not commit? Believing in his innocence and locked in her own prison attempting to live with only half a heart, is Darlina Flowers a fool to keep holding to nothing but memories and a dream? Join Luke and Darlina as they continue their epic journey through shackles and chains, drugs and gurus with undying love as their North Star in this true story.

From the Author:

Writing this book was a challenge since I wasn't personally present in prison. However, I researched endlessly to come with accurate information and details to write each scene.

Since this is a true story, it is super important to me that the facts be correct. I enjoyed doing the research, because that meant digging through boxes of letters, volumes of writings and remembering stories I was told.

During this research, I ran across some song lyrics that I'd never seen before. I'd never heard Rick Sikes sing them or mention them, but they were so powerful, I knew I had to get someone to put music to them. That person turned out to be Jamie Richards and the day we went into the studio was pure magic. He completely captured the emotion in the song, Forty Foot High.

This book is the sequel to my first book, Flowers and Stone, and I'm currently working on a third title to complete the trilogy. "Home at Last" will be released in the spring of 2015.

From the Back Cover:

Rebel Texas musician, Luke Stone, loses everything he treasures in life to the forty foot walls and iron bars of Leavenworth Penitentiary. How is it possible that, in America, a man can be convicted of a crime he did not commit?

Locked in her own prison, attempting to live with only half a heart, is Darlina Flowers a fool to keep holding to nothing but memories and a dream?

Join Luke and Darlina as they continue their epic journey through shackles and chains, drugs and gurus with undying love as their North Star.

Book Description Rijan Publishing, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In the sequel to Flowers and Stone, Luke and Darlina find their love severely tested as they struggle to overcome enormous odds. When Texas veteran musician, Luke Stone, finds himself behind bars with a seventy-five year sentence, he is filled with hate, anger and rebelliousness. He s lost everything that he treasures, including the woman who holds his heart. How has it come down to this? He s spent his entire life writing songs and making music, filling dancehalls and bars from Texas to California. But, when he refuses to tell the FBI what he knows about certain bank robberies that he possesses knowledge of, they make sure he pays dearly. Broken and alone, in a prison of her own, Darlina Flowers struggles to find a way to live without the man she loves so completely. Over the next sixteen years, Luke and Darlina each search for ways to somehow survive the fate life has hurled them into. In an effort to dull the pain of living with only half a heart, Darlina gets involved in drugs, then follows a guru and tries different relationships, but nothing fills the void. Several years pass before Luke makes up his mind that prison will not break him. He crawls up from the bottom one tiny step at a time, determined to be and do something worthwhile and discovers artistic talents he never realized he had. The Convict and the Rose inspires hope and shows how anyone can turn a negative dark situation into a positive one. But more importantly, the story portrays a love that goes beyond earthly confines and proves how persistence and faith come with their own sweet reward. Join Luke and Darlina as they continue their epic journey with love as their constant North Star and freedom as the driving force. Seller Inventory # AAV9780990617914
