It’s About the Journey
About the Book
They say life isn’t a walk in the park, but what if your life restarts that way? It turns out that simply pushing a little girl on a swing can change so many things, like your beliefs, your mood, and even your future. For divorced Jeff, this comes as quite the surprise, as does his reaction to Cassie and her daughter Kyra. Cassie is white, while Kyra is black, and due to his upbringing, Jeff is at first conflicted by his attraction. Everyone in his small town is racist, and his grandmother taught him to be the same—but he might just be willing to change to have Cassie and Kyra in his life like rays of sunshine breaking through the dark. Previously, Jeff would never have seen someone like Cassie as “the one,” but that viewpoint soon changes as he gets to know her. Despite economic and racial confusion, their relationship grows. Jeff learns things he never expected. He especially learns that just hearing a special someone’s voice makes his day better and that loss can not only break a heart but also break a smile.
