PROLOGUE

“They say Heaven bears no pain…no anger…no sadness.

All you feel is peace…joy…and LOVE.

I know…I’ve been there.

CHAPTER ONE

“My long, ivory dress swayed as I zoomed through the wide evergreen meadow while Michael chased after me. Vibrant lilies, daisies, geraniums, poppies, and perennial flowers raised their necks to see where we were going.

‘Catch me if you can.’ I glanced back at him, my face beaming with a grin.

Behind me, Michael’s bronzed skin glowed in his ashen Caftan. Every day was the same; we would play a game of tag around the meadow, knowing time didn’t exist. Michael always made me win.

Nevertheless, I amped up my speed to get to the other side. Upon reaching the maple tree where we first kissed, I wiped the beads of moisture cascading down my nape.”

NB. I have only shared a few scant lines this time, as Indigo is a novella of some 120 pages. However, having been an early adopter of Geraldine’s books, I just know that length will make no difference to the quality of the narrative or storyline, which is always top notch!

So, you have taken a look, would you read the book?

Let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Just to give you an extra helping hand, here is the book’s premise

INDIGO – (A Novella)

Cover image of the book 'Indigo' by author Geraldine SolonGrace and Michael are soulmates, and Heaven is the only world they’ve known.

While Grace and Michael play a game of tag, they discover an area prohibited by God. Piqued by their curiosity, Grace urges Michael to explore what’s out there, not realizing that the dark hole is a tunnel that leads to Earth.

Michael is hesitant to probe further, but a slip in the ravine causes him to tumble and land on Earth. Grace can’t afford to lose Michael, so she follows him to Earth, hoping to bring him back to Heaven.

Unbeknownst to Grace, on Earth, Michael is a married man with a three-year-old daughter and has lost all his memories of Heaven, including Grace.

Despite the circumstances, Grace must bring Michael back during the full moon; otherwise, she is stuck on Earth forever.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
