Synopsis: Emma Peterson's interactions with her mother, Rose, drastically changed after her mother became ill and was no longer able to play or hold her only daughter. After passing away, she left Emma a necklace and her father to raise her alone
At a summer camp her mother once attended she put on the necklace. Upon closing the clasp, she is suddenly whisked away and walking in her mother's footsteps seeing life through her eyes. Through the years the necklace continues bringing her glimpses of her mother's memories, giving her insight into her mother, herself, and even helps when she becomes a mother to Aurora. Now that she has a daughter she is able to fully appreciate all that her mother was. Just as many new mothers learn that their experiences mirror their mother's, Emma is able to celebrate when history repeats itself and is given help during some difficult times. She leans on the necklace's gift over the years, until she arrives on the last memory that reveals more than Emma could ever expect.
April Waverly grew up in Connecticut working as an accountant while always exploring creative outlets. Through the years she would doodle tattoos, whip up unique cupcakes and even try her hand at painting from nail art to canvases. April loved to discover new means to explore her creativity. It has always been something that kept her in balance, numbers at work that were black and white and creative escapes providing a splash of color.
During her pregnancy with her first daughter a conversation with her mother inspired a story. After the idea was sparked she sat and wrote her first book 'One Shared Heart'. Through moments with her growing daughter and memories of her own she continued to find inspiration for the story. Since completing that first book, ideas continue to find her and demand that she share their stories as well.
