A Crossroads Cafe Short Story 47 pages long
She s destined to love Gus MacBride if she survives her first year in the Crossroads Cove.
A thread of hope is all she needs.
Damaged, confused, alone. Cathy Deen Mitternich recognizes her old self in the fragile survivor huddled in the sheep barn s storage room at Rainbow Goddess Farm. Former art teacher Lucy Parmenter may be beyond even the tough-love magic of the farm, a live-in counseling center for abused women. Afraid to set a foot outside, drugged on medication, and filled with despair, Lucy needs the big biscuit magic of the Crossroad Cafe s Delta Whittlespoon. Together, Cathy and Delta search for a lifeline that represents Lucy s best hope of holding on.
Their search ends in Lucy s new home at the barn. When Lucy discovers the magic there, neither she nor Cathy will ever be the same.
