Snippet Sunday 13/10/13 - Innocent Tears

 
Welcome to Snippet Sunday !
 
Thanks for all your kind comments last week. I do appreciate it. 
My Snippet Sunday today is as well from my previous release
 "Innocent Tears"
 
 
 

Blurb:
Becoming a parent can be daunting at the best of times, but for Flynn, a business lawyer in Melbourne, it almost pulls the feet from right underneath him. He’s become a father to six-year-old Nadine literally overnight! He had no idea about her existence, and the news throws him into chaos, even more so when he is asked to take over custody.

With the help of Emma, an employee at the hotel where Nadine and her grandparents are staying, and his parents, Flynn tries to do the right thing. Yet, the right thing in his eyes differs from his parents’, and Emma is voicing her opinion as well. And right in the middle is little Nadine, still grieving the loss of her mother and finding a wonderful friend in Emma. There’s no doubt she’s afraid where and with whom she will settle.

But in the end, it’s a letter Flynn receives that helps him figuring out what to do.


His knees almost gave way beneath him at the memory of Sarah’s skin under his touch, the taste of her lips and the fragrance of her hair. In a sudden outburst of anger and frustration, Flynn threw his cup into the corner of the balcony. Sliding down along the railing until he sat on the floor, he pulled his knees close to his chest and propped his arms on his legs. He stared blindly ahead – the life he was living had come at a high price.
 

Thank you all for stopping by!

  1. Did the sudden outburst of anger and frustration hit because of what he read in a letter?
    Guess I don't know enough about the story.
    Was losing Sarah the high price he'd paid?

  2. Good job. A very emotional scene. The single parent thing is only going to add to it.

  4. Looks like he regrets a choice or two. This is a wonderfully emotional paragraph, without being overwrought. :)
