Back Cover Description

Kendra Cartwright longed to find a new center for her life without falling into the pit of self-destruction. She was twenty-six and totally lost.

Everything Kendra loved and dreamed was taken from her…all a result of harsh fates not of her seeding. She held tightly to one small glimmer of optimism, a hope only sustained by a reoccurring dream.

Robert Weinstein and his wife fled California in the wake of crushing bereavement. In Florida they hope to conquer grief and perhaps rekindle their romance obscured by decades of marital duty and mistakes.

A chance meeting with a troubled, but extremely talented young woman alters their aspirations in ways they could never have foreseen. An intimate link Robert and this young lady share unveils a revelation shifting the very underpinnings of their Florida retreat. Within their shared secret, a gift of miraculous joy is found hidden within tragedy.

Music is also an important part of


Just as within The Reverie of Jedadiah, music is an important part of Anna’s Vestige as it is within many of our lives and loves. Music can touch our hearts, move our emotions and even open our eyes to the wonders held within. Though only by hearing it, can it work its magic… and be felt. Below you can listen to the music as I heard it while writing Anna’s Vestige.
