A fairytale future. A Checkered past. A decision awaits.
In between a checkered past and a fairytale future, a decision awaits. Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all—a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancée, and a fairy tale life ahead of him … when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him.
Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must go back to the shores of Holden Beach in search of his first love, and a forgiveness neither of them has ever known. Three people must work through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them can look toward a new future.
A Snippet from her interview of the novel on YouTube:
“Shades of Blue is a story that I’ve been wanting to write for several years. I realized that I could not write a book about healing and forgiveness after abortion without being honest about my story.”Karen Kingsbury
