Fiction, Romance, Self-Help

In “Angel Rock Leap”, Sarah discovers there is a fine line between love and repulsion, friends and enemies, and sanity and lunacy.

Can a person’s life really be over at just nineteen? Sarah challenges this notion when her chosen career crashes and burns, leading her to realize that she has to stop being a willing victim—both professionally as well as personally—in order to find her road to success. Passivity ends and rebellion begins once Sarah decides to return to her hometown to face down failed relationships and gain a better understanding of the things that might be holding her back in life. She uses her newfound knowledge about herself to pull others out of similar crises, as love is rediscovered and friendship is borne out of adversity.
