One really cool thing about a novella is how fast your readers get back to you, and so far the response to HAWTHORNE has been kickin’! Here’s just a taste of what readers are saying:
“I don’t cry often, but when I do, I cry hard. This book had me blubbering like a baby and it didn’t need many words to do it. Sarah has a wonderful talent for creating believable words and characters that will stick with you long after you’ve finished reading. … The plot, the characters, the setting . . . everything was perfect.” — Goodreads review from Krystal Wade
“Sarah Ballance crafts a lushly written, American Gothic love story with “Hawthorne.” This sleekly related ghostly love story has more twists and turns than a roller coaster, and will keep the reader guessing right up to the end. Although “Hawthorne” is “sweet” romance rather than the erotic variety that earned Sarah her current following, the taut, immediate way the story is told will make the reader’s hair stand on end. Read this before bed at your own risk! Five beer mugs!” — JS Wayne on his blog

Caylie Abrahms bad day gets worse when the teen brother she’s responsible for proudly hands her a gift. Just wanting to show how much he appreciates all his sister does for him, Kyle steals what he believes is an ornate glass vase. The gift is anything but however, and now Caylie has to find the owner of an urn. Worst yet, she has to explain her dear brother stole someones loved one.
Against all odds she learns the urn belongs to Rick Marshall, her best friend from college, the man she’d poured her heart out to and been rejected by. She never thought she’d see him again, let alone have to hand him back his father in glass. Will her resolve remain strong in his presence, or will she suffer another broken heart?
