Blurb:  
The past is never far
behind.
Senia
Loato’s life has been needled by disappointment, and the wounds that fester go
beyond skin deep. She is certain if she puts miles between her and her tainted
past, she will somehow outrun it. When she’s offered the chance to leave her
island home of Mintang to become an au pair for three boys in Germany, she
takes the opportunity to start running.
In
Germany, she meets Miina, another African au pair. What builds between them is
a life-defining friendship, one they will risk everything for.
And soon, they’ll be
asked nothing less.
When
Miina is betrayed and left stranded, Senia stands by her, risking much more
than just her stay in Germany. She also stands to lose rich, handsome,
turquoise-eyed Roman Dorenwald, the first man she has allowed into her heart.
But they’re risks
worth taking.
Eventually,
Senia makes a sacrifice that catapults her back to her past, where she’s forced
to draw back the curtain and discover the shocking truth of her history.
Can
she confront her nightmares, reach deep into her soul, and forgive those who
have hurt her? Or is it easier to just keep running?

Excerpt:
Back in my newly renovated basement
apartment, I drew a deep, shaky breath, then lifted the box I’d left on the bed
earlier. I carried it to the outside rubbish bin and returned empty-handed. Now
all I had to do was shake off what was left of my emotional baggage.
Easier said than done, I mused. Why
wouldn’t it be? For years I’d felt like a piece of clothing that had been
ripped open at the seams, without a seam ripper to lessen the damage. Then
unravelled until all that remained were pieces that had once belonged to
something whole.
That didn’t matter now. I should be
thankful that the fabric was still intact, the individual pieces just waiting
to be sewn back together, stitch by stitch.
If there was something I knew how to do,
sewing would be it. Sure, at times I’d probably veer from sewing in a straight
line or mistakenly jab a finger with the needle. Fine. I’d just start over,
next time with the help of a thimble.

sprinkling them with snippets born of her imagination, to write fiction. Her
aim as a writer is to both thrill and inspire readers. The genres she enjoys
writing are as diverse as the books she reads.
