New Tomorrows is the first book in Ann's Hidden Valley series of clean, feel-good romances, each of which explores a serious, real life, contemporary issue.
Is it a twist of fate or something more? On September 11, 2001, Jon was a nurse working in a New York City Hospital and Alliie was an EMT in an all-volunteer fire/EMS company near Washington, D.C. Both are still struggling with fallout from that pivotal day when their paths accidentally cross in Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains. A surprising bond grows between them, but they both must find the courage to overcome the barriers they have built around their hearts. Dreams, memories, and unexpected discoveries reveal the events that have shaped their lives since 9/11.
While battling to overcome their individual traumas, Allie and Jon gather a group of Hidden Valley friends to help Allie create a domestic abuse program and shelter.
Strongly immersed in the fire/EMS brotherhood of a remote mountain community, this clean, contemporary romance explores how the effects of poverty, abandonment, domestic abuse, and personal loss influence our lives for years to come. New Tomorrows shows that there is hope for healing from trauma and, if we allow it, love can break through barriers of the past.
