Publisher's Summary

Cassie Parker has grown used to denying her sexuality. Her father, the fire-and-brimstone Reverend Parker, has made that a necessity. Raised in a web of secrets, sadness, and under the heavy hand of her father's righteous wrath and intolerance, Cassie turns to her art to fill the hole in her heart and erase the memory of a mother who abandoned her in childhood. Then Luke Winston enters her life. Strong, mysterious, and beautiful, Luke sparks Cassie's desire, and takes her heart to places she's never known. Soon Cassie can no longer deny her attraction to women - and especially to Luke.  

When Cassie's father makes an unexpected visit, the intrusion on her new life explodes as dark family secrets are revealed. Will Cassie choose a life without family...or a life without love?

another excellent story

As a pk myself I could relate to this story on so many levels. I know we’ve come a long way as a nation, but it’s a good reminder that everyone’s journey to self awareness is different. love ways wins if we have the courage to embrace it.

Pure pleasure

The combination of Gerri Hill story and the sexy voice of Abby Craden is a vining combination.
This story of an artist who grew up with a father who is a reverend anti gay, who denied her sexuality for so many years, is a well written story and actually I am waiting for a sequel., it left me on a cliff hanger. not fair.

Beautiful story

Great characters. I want to move to their small artist town. Of course it was another amazing reading by the spectacular Abby Craden.

Amazing and difficult.

Coming from an extremely difficult religious upbringing...there are parts of this book that really hit way too close to home. Let me just say...religion ruins lives. It took me until my 30s to realize that I would need to leave every part of my life just to be myself also. And altho I am now happily married to my amazing wife...it was not an easy journey. This kind of religious brainwashing is not easy to overcome. Learning how to stand up for yourself and get beyond the shame and guilt and fear is a lifelong challenge. Excellent book.

What’s not to love? Well written and paced, complicated and interesting characters, solid research, and excellent tension. Highly recommend.

Flying on an Eagles Wing

Cassie Parker was living her dreams in an artist’s community in California. Then Luke Winston came into her life and turns her world upside down. Overcoming her fears instilled by her father Reverend Parker, Cassie must reach out for the love of her life. Great performance and story. Recommend author.

Leaves you feeling free

This is not just a great book - it's also one that will leave you feeling extremely free. I read the last few minutes while sitting in the parking lot of my son's school. Stepped out to go pick him up feeling lighter and taller. If you have ever felt yourself holding back on life because of your childhood, read this.

Probably not necessary to add since it IS Abby Craden and all...but for anyone who hasn't experienced her narrating, she's fantastic as always.
