About this title


"Take care of your little sister while I'm gone."

Charley Sue Channing is six years old when her mama kisses her and her sister, Edie...then disappears. Raised by their spinster great-aunt, life isn't all sunshine and butterflies. Twenty-four years later, Aunt Mattie dies and Charley Sue sets out to learn the truth, hoping to expose the past and gain the love of her mother. Instead, she risks losing everything she's held dear, including her sister. In a strange twist of fate, Edie ends up holding the one thing that Charley Sue longs for most of all.

Seeking the advice of psychiatrist Harrison James, Charley Sue finds herself directed to the one place that may hold the truth. What she finds there are the secrets of nearly a quarter of a century that should never have been exhumed.

Through discoveries and denials, a new chapter in Charley Sue's story comes to life and she discovers that perhaps new love is more important to her survival. Emotions run deep when hopeful stirrings inside redirect her focus from what was, to what can be. She soon discovers that there is both heartache and triumph at having finally found what she was looking for.

About the Author:

Paula J. Egner is a writer and speaker who strives to incorporate her personal mission statement, "To bring joy and hope to others through the written and spoken word," into her written works, as well as into her professional speaking business, Aptly Spoken Enterprises. In 2002, she forfeited her fifteen-year career in Materials Management to pursue this mission.

Paula also hopes to promote Christian values, especially in story themes that wouldn't normally be considered spiritual. The foundational scripture for her writing and speaking career is Proverbs 25:11: "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver."

She and her husband, Allen, enjoy taking long walks and playing twosome Scrabble tournaments. They're empty-nesters, except for their two dogs, Penny and Lucy.
