E-Book cover

Thirteen is the number most consider unlucky, but for Cassandra Danforth, it’s always been five. Her mother lost her battle with cancer at age thirty five, and Cassie was only fifteen when alcohol converted her once loving father into a man she had never met. On scholarship to college in California, a mysterious delinquent captures her heart while they volunteer  for the local animal, and things are finally looking up.

But, like everything in her life, this too, is destroyed by that accursed number. When a 5:55 a.m. phone call  turns her world on it’s axis yet again, she will have to take a leap of faith, and try to trust.
