Whispers Of An Angel

Sometimes second chances start with four paws.
In the small town of Marshall Glen, Sofia retreats from life following the death of her husband. Six-year-old Kady lives in foster care and hasn’t spoken since a house fire stole her family. After she saves Kady’s dog from drowning, Sofia attempts to stay locked away, but learns that—
…even though she’s given up, her heart wants to—try again.
When Kady runs away from her foster home, Sofia meets the cop in charge of the search, Brandon—her first love. Sparks fly even as she struggles with her conscience. Is she being unfair to her husband’s memory?
When random acts of vandalism turn to attempted kidnapping, Brandon helps keep Kady safe. As the danger deepens, how far will Sofia go to save a child?

  1. Lorah,

    Where did you get your inspiration for the story?

  2. Hi, thanks for asking. All of the dogs in the story are actual dogs that I walked at a local Pack Walk, and I always wanted to be able to give them happy endings. Then a writer's group I'm a member of had a short story contest based on a prompt, so the dogs got woven in with Kady (Phoebe totally fell in love with a friend's little girl when we walked her, so it was a great story line). I had a positive response to the story, so I expanded it into a full length novel. My characters tend to give me ideas as we go, so I just let my imagination take over.

  3. Our furry friends are wonderful companions, but can get in the way. I would say they don't talk back, but having lost several shouting battles with my son's pit bull, I guess that isn't really true. We have done wildlife rescue over the years as well as done foster care for the local animal shelter. That can be dangerous. We have adopted too many shelter babies. We are currently down to 3 dogs and a peacock (I got rid of the ball python last week since I no longer use her in classes.). If we don't get them from the pound, people call us to take them, or they just show up at our house and stay. I fell in love with an older lab mix at the shelter a week or so ago, but the pack dynamics at our house right now just won't allow a new dog. Saved us from ourselves : )
    Best wishes for a successful writing career.
