Devastated by the death of her father and being bullied at her new school, fourteen-year-old Niki O’Malley climbs up to the highest branch of her olive tree in an effort to hide away from the world. Next thing she knows, she’s staring into the window of crying classmate Julie Oliveri. What is even more shocking is that Niki now has red hair and green eyes, very different from her normal black hair and blue eyes. What is going on? Is this all a dream? Magic? Coincidence? As Niki grows stronger and courageous, she discovers that her father lives forever in her heart and she never really did lose him. She also learns the meaning of true friendships and even falls in love for the very first time. Most of all, she understands the important lesson that when you love someone, you need to let them know, before it is too late.
What if you had a second chance to make your dreams come true, but were too afraid? Or longed to fall in love but kept choosing the wrong man, over and over? How about being the new girl at school and finding yourself the victim of malicious bullying?
Social worker Ivy Blake survives a heart attack, decides to retire and do everything she’s always dreamed of. Only one problem. How do you say goodbye to your old life when you are a workaholic? Chris Palermo is a twenty-eight year old teacher who desperately wants a relationship, but chooses the wrong guy, date after date. Seventeen year old Jamie Hinks is a social outcast at her new school. Rebelling, she sports a fauxhawk and a ‘don’t mess with me’ attitude.
This story is an invitation to journey with Ivey, Chris and Jamie, as they search, explore and overcome obstacles that just might lead to sweet, redeeming love.
