First I would like to thank Barb and all her followers for taking the time to read this and participate in this tour.I find that whenever I get new readers they are often surprised at how immersed they become in my work. I write ‘Fiction With A Purpose’ with real people and real issues. That does not mean that it is non-fiction – It is FICTION and the stories come from my head. But as a reader you will be taken on a ride that will open up your heart and play with your emotions.
Disrupted Lives is truly a love story – Darren and Amelia met at high school and they have that once in a lifetime kind of love – but life gets in the way. When they finally reconnect, Amelia must tell Darren that she was forced to give up their child. The tale then backtracks into all familial ties that child touches. The romance of the south, and the darkness of the south are revealed, and a family dynasty is brought to its’ knees. Whenever a book digs up a family you know that the family secrets are going to come out! This book is no exception to that rule!
A name does not make a person, a person makes a name. Such is the theme of Disrupted Lives, the story of how one adopted child touches and intersects with many lives, but ends up destroying one family name, while building another family’s legacy.
Darren and Amelia Kane were high school sweethearts torn apart by war. They reunite and discover that they both must put their nightmares behind them to build a life together. Betrayed by her parents, Amelia was earlier forced to give up their child.
Fiona Porter and Sterling Lake are thrown together as part of a business proposition. They end up surprising both their families by enriching the Lake empire and family name. The Lakes become synonymous with society, power and money, and their children must carry that torch forward at all cost.
When an adopted grandchild is brought into the family, he questions the definition of “family”. From 1920 to present-day Georgia, this saga of family secrets and old Southern prejudices are explored in the explosive novel Disrupted Lives.
Brenda Youngerman is the author of six novels, Restored Hope, Public Lies, Private Scars, Sorrowed Souls, Hidden Truths, and including her latest release, Disrupted Lives. Brenda lives in Southern California and is writing her next novel, Skewered Halo. “I write what I call ‘Fiction With a Purpose’, something that I hope takes the reader on a ride so when they put the book down they say, “Was that real?” I also want the messages in the book to stay with them.”
I’d like to thank Brenda for dropping by my blog today and also for offering up a signed copy of her book. Brenda loves to stay in touch with her readers and can be found a number of places:
