Seven Days in Carrington, Volume 1 – Causes of Affection

After years spent forging an honorable career in the United States Air Force, Lieutenant General Skip Thomas and his wife Anne settle into the safety and comfort of his retirement--until tragedy strikes. Forced to deal with the events that follow, Anne finds herself flashing back to her hometown, her childhood friends, and the life she had dreamed of back in 1969. Set in Hamilton County, in the quaint town of Carrington, just south of the Mason-Dixon Line, Seven Days in Carrington: Causes of Affection is a coming-of-age story that follows the lives of Lise Engel, Anne Carter, Lacey Slater, Katja Dykstra, and Kate Armstrong--the self-proclaimed "B Group"--as they leave all they have ever known in search of adventure, love, and independence.

Seven Days in Carrington: Causes of Affection is an epic tale about the strength of the human spirit, the ties that bind us, and the far-reaching effects of the twentieth century's most contentious social and political issues. It's a story that will make you laugh out loud, cry, and reflect on your own life and your place in this world.

Volume 2, Always and Forever meets up with the old gang at Anne Carter's HAMILTON HILL B&B. The world is changing, and as the human race from all around the globe descends on Carrington for a wedding weekend, the power of love and intention, like cream, rise to the top in this tale set in just seven days.
