Excerpt from Dreams of Sand:
The following days turned into weeks, and before long it was August. Every morning, the sun rose majestically over Lake Huron announcing the start of another day filled with the hum of bees and the sound of gulls and the occasional ice cream truck that wound its way through the streets.
Though the days seemed lazy and predictable, there was a tension in the air, the cause of which Grace could not quite put her finger on. It was as though a storm were brewing.
Yes, in this hot, hazy summer of 1990, a subtle shift in mood had woven itself into the fabric of Grace Moore’s life and the lives of those around her.
