Book Excerpts

1. She was slender, but strong. She stood a little over five feet tall, but her presence made her appear to be a giant to me. Behind her strength, she was fragile. Her beauty was tormented, like the beauty one finds in a storm. I could only see this beauty when she was not looking at me. Her eyes scared me. I never looked at her directly and from this view I could not see her eyes. I never wanted to look like her because under all that beauty I saw her true nature and it was hideous.
