So, here goes with an excerpt teaser from REINVENTING LEONA, Tyndale 2011:
A familiar ache throttled Leona’s heart as she watched her daughter put her head down against the wind and set off for the limo in the far corner of the deserted parking lot.
The Harpers had been the first ones to arrive at the church building and the last ones to leave for so many years that the sight of a lone car seemed natural. Leona couldn’t have identified the kind of car anyone drove, except for Howard and Maxine Davis. And she only knew their car because every Sunday, the Cadillac dealer parked his current demo model right in front of the glass foyer doors in the spot marked Visitor Parking Only.
It galled J.D. that the chairman of the elder board insisted that having the visitor spot filled with such an impressive ride would entice those of considerable means inside the church doors.
On the sin of pride, the pastor was not one to turn the other cheek. So J.D. had taken to parking the Harpers’ rusted-out minivan in the very next slot, where he had Cotton erect a homemade sign that read Pastor Parking Only, even though they lived right across the parking lot and had no need to drive the van to church.
There you have it … an excerpt from REINVENTING LEONA. Now I’m tagging some 7 other great authors you won’t want to miss. Check out their stories and enjoy.
