Today, I'm sharing six paragraphs from Hope's story in Ages of Love:


“Good afternoon. May I help you?” A woman, who appeared to be in her thirties, looked up from a desk behind a glass partition and flashed a welcoming smile.

Hope crossed to the counter, eyeing the myriad of literature displayed there. Her mouth turned to cotton. “I…I’d like some information please.”

“Of course. Feel free to peruse any of our printed material, or if you prefer, I can set an appointment for you to meet with one of our counselors.”

Hope managed to return the woman’s smile. “I think I’d like to look through some of the pamphlets first, if you don’t mind.”

“Whatever you’d like.” The clerk gestured to the colorful brochures. “Help yourself and have a seat. If you have any questions, let me know.” She slid her chair over to her computer and returned to her typing.


Hope gathered several tri-folds and glanced around the empty waiting room. She sat in the chair closest to the wall, put her handbag on the floor, and read. The impersonal wording made the process medically clear–almost as if no human being was involved. Time was of the essence—the emphasis on that warning appeared several times in every piece of literature. “The first trimester.” Hope’s voice sliced the silence and she went back to reading in silence.

If you'd like to read the rest of Hope's Story and those of Chastity and Faith, you can find Ages of Love on Amazon.

Great six and thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

(and can you believe I spelled my own name wrong for the new linky list? I must need to still be in bed)

Thanks for stopping by to comment. I visited everyone's blog, but I see we only have two people signed up for next week. That sucks!

What is that poor girl contemplating Ginger?!?

Ack! Almost made me cry.

I'm about to post mine, so there will be 3 of us now. It's still early though on a Monday, so hopefully there will be more sign up as the week gets going.

I need to scheduled a few of my posts ahead so I'll always have my permalink ready to go on Monday morning. Trying to get back into the swing of things (I used to do the Six Sentence Sundays & I kept a month's worth of posts prepped and ready to go.) ;)

We'll get there!

Taryn...I hope we get more people to sign up. I used to do Six Sentence Sundays too and I enjoyed having a theme each Sunday. Before I invest in the Linky Tool (monthly expense) I want to make sure people are going to use it, and I have two more weeks. :)
