Love a Foot Above the Ground

(A book in the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series)
A novel by

"In those happy days we were so much in love we lived about a foot above the ground. We had one perfect Christmas then, I lost him. It took me a while to find him again - but this time it was forever." As my dear Bernadette spoke those words I felt the ground shift, just a little. Not unlike one of the small tremors that move the earth for those of us who live along the San Andreas fault-line. I was only nine years old at the time, so I had no way of knowing how much the story that followed would truly move me - how much I would come to rely on the tale and the teller of the tale. Tears streamed down my face, as I struggled to make sense of the joy radiating from the woman who held me in her arms and gave me my first glimpse of something transcendent." Jessica Huntington ***** A story of love, loss, and inspiration set in the 1960s, told to Jessica Huntington in the 1980s, and shared with us today. For fans of the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery Series, the story is narrated by the protagonist in that series. The story is Bernadette's. A tragic, but ultimately uplifting story of love lost and found again, in Bernadette's words, "it's a real happily ever after story." Hers is the kind of story everyone faces who takes that leap of faith into love. A love that lifts us up about a foot above the ground leaves us vulnerable and pushes us toward something more lasting.
