Welcome to Jennifer’s world – a world of dreams, hopes and good feelings and a world of great empathy for anyone who is longing for something else in their lives, some little adventure or a bit more excitement – Sherry, for instance, who longed for a simple life, ”a life that she could call her own” – or Carolina Brindle who wanted a quiet cottage by the sea, a cottage with a wonderful view, if it wasn’t too much to ask. And peoples hopes in finding the answer to all the questions climbing high enough and looking hard enough.
”Just when Miller Woodstock thought he had seen his last happiest day, the sun came up all golden and promised him once more” getting another chance and new hopes and having ”the sights set on heaven.”
Memories of moonlight swims in the summer night and times when Trina and Jess were inseparable. And remembering ”his sweet voice singing You are my sunshine” around and around and around.
Jennifer’s world is a world filled with promises, good intentions and wishes for better times to come – a bright future but also wishes for a happy day today-
”a sunday morning and all is well. Beautiful, bright and better than best.”
