Hope you week was pleasant and successful and your weekend doubly so. Please join me in welcoming Clare Revell back to Saturday Spotlight today with her new book, Cassie's Wedding Dress.
Clare lives in a small town in England with her husband of 19 years and her three children. Writing from a early childhood and encouraged by her teachers, she graduated from rewriting fairy stories through fanfiction to using her own original characters and enjoys writing an eclectic mix of romance, crime fiction and children's stories. When she's not writing, reading, sewing or keeping house or doing the many piles of laundry her children manage to make, she's working part time in the breakfast club at one of the local schools. She has been a Christian for more than half her life. She goes to Carey Baptist where she is one of three registrars.
Jack Chambers, now a widower and single parent, still has feelings for Cassie, but she sees him as nothing more than a Pastor. Even if he could change her mind, there is still his position to consider.
With the Royal Wedding fast approaching, Cassie makes her dress, little dreaming of the consequences of doing so.
“Everyone else has photos of the royal couple and ribbons, silver bells, hearts and balloons. I wanted something more sophisticated but this…” she gestured at the window, “…isn’t it.”
“Maybe tie it in with what Danny sells. After all, the bakers did a wedding cake and the printers did invitations.”
Cassie nodded, her mind whirling. “Yeah…thank you.”
Jack glanced at his watch. “I’d best be off and get Lara from school. She complains if I’m late. I hope you find a solution to your problem.”
“Thank you. Bye.” Cassie smiled and turned back to her display, watching Jack’s reflection in the glass as he walked away. He’d always been a Godly man, even as a teenager, and despite everything that happened he kept his faith—unlike her. Her life and her faith lay in ruins.
She used to hope he’d ask her out one day, but it never happened. And now it never would. She was down and out before anything even got started.
He was a pastor, and she was his parishioner. A fallen- without- hope- of- redemption parishioner, at that. Strike one.
He was a widower with a small daughter. Strike two.
Her leg—her disability. No man would ever want a one-legged ex-jockey. Strike three.
Cassie's Wedding Dress is available now from White Rose Publishing
