Follow your heart!

I wanted to share this story not only because I think that it is a very cute story about Nick, but also because I believe that wisdom and support can often come to us from unexpected sources if we are open to receiving it.

The other day, Nick’s younger brother Derek and I were discussing my previous blog post on parenting.   Derek was talking about how hard it is to know exactly what each child needs.  I was encouraging him, telling him that I believed he would know what to do.  To any observer, it would appear that Nick wasn’t following the conversation.  Nick was sitting next to Derek, spinning his string, slumped down, looking at the floor.

All of a sudden, Nick straightened up in his chair, turned his head, stopped spinning and looking directly at Derek, said, “Follow your heart, Derek.”  Derek and I both stopped talking, amazed again at the insight and wise words spoken by Nick.  It was simple and to the point.  Exactly what Derek needed to hear.

I have pondered that counsel the past couple of days.  What changes would I (could I) implement immediately if I was to follow my heart?  What would it be like if I truly trusted my inner wisdom and the inspiration I receive in my heart?  I have resolved to be more aware of what my heart is telling me.  I am going to follow my heart!  What impact would that have in your life if you followed your heart and trusted your instincts and decisions?

I would love to hear stories of your experiences with following your heart.  I will read them to Nick.  He likes hearing what everyone is commenting about his stories.

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
