Excerpt: In the Wake of Wanting – “Dinner with the Hollands”

I didn’t mention that the flustered feeling would be contagious. This excerpt brings back some of your favorites, if you’re a current reader of mine. (Livvy, Jon, Jack and Emi are all… Continue reading Excerpt: In the Wake of Wanting – “Dinner with the Hollands”
