Ashley Hawthorne Signs Two Book Deal with Creative James Media
Greyson Barlow had no interest in ever returning to his childhood home. The events he's running from were bad enough the first time he lived through them, and he doesn't need to wander those halls again and stir up any painful memories.
The news of his grandfather's mysterious death is nowhere near enough to change his determination, but when he's informed that he's now responsible for the house and the care of his grandmother, his sole remaining living family member, he's left with no choice.
Reuniting with his loving grandmother is a painful reminder of the good things he left behind in his run for freedom, but her overprotective caretaker, Becka Simmons, seems to resent his presence from the moment he arrives. Becka's defiant attitude and sharp intelligence are intriguing, but she's as moody as the sea that churns just beyond the windows, and he's convinced she's just as likely to drag him under if he isn't careful.
As the weeks pass and the truth about his grandfather's death circles ever closer to home, the inhabitants of Barlow House are forced to examine their pasts and what caring for each other really means. There's nowhere left for any of them to hide and unless they can find a way to save each other, they'll all be swept away.
About Ashley Hawthorne
Ashley Hawthorne is a shameless introvert and lifelong lover of stories. A homeschooling mom for more than a decade, she needed a new challenge when her rapidly growing students began to become more independent. After a lot of consideration and a few false starts, she decided to start writing stories of her own. Her favorite tales have always been those of love and loss, hope and heartbreak, and that's what she hopes you will find in the worlds she creates. Most of her time is spent writing or hanging out with her family, but she also enjoys outdoor adventures and baking. She lives in a very tiny house in Texas with her husband, two teenagers, and far too many rescue animals, including a cat named Fish Stick and ball python named Root Beer.
