The Growing Time
Under publisher consideration
Popular jewelry designer Nicole Bauer Evans struggles to balance career and family. When her husband and young son are killed in an accident, she spirals into a deep depression. Barely existing from day to day, she is urged by her father and step-mother to acquaint herself with her unknown grandfather, Wil Decker. Her biological mother died when she was only a few months old and Nicole has no interest in exploring her roots. When she finally agrees to an arranged meeting with the old man, she discovers he wants nothing to do with her.
While she sorts through the broken shards of what was her mother’s life, Nicole finds herself caring for Thomas Elliot, a man who once worked for her grandfather. She quickly pulls away, believing if she falls in love with Thomas she will betray her husband and son.
The despair which has plagued her mother’s family touches Nicole's heart and she becomes determined to convince her grandfather to live what is left of his life to the fullest. In doing so she sees herself mirrored in the old man's actions and decides she wants to live--and love--again herself.
Who is the perfect suitor for straight laced Beth? It's not an easy question because Beth's definition of perfect is different from everyone else's.
