ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
C D Swanson writes from the heart, as evidenced in every book she’s produced. Employed primarily as a director in the nursing home industry, she’s also always felt a passion for writing. It wasn’t until four years ago that she started an online writing devotional/ministry, that she discovered an additional calling. “To share the love of God, and His words, is the very pulse of my heartbeat, and it is to Him, that all honor and glory belong,” says Swanson. C D Swanson is happily married to her childhood sweetheart, and they have “one boy” named Max.

He struggles with guilt when he begins to experience feelings for his co-worker Kiana, who has suffered an equally devastating loss.
