Weekend Writing Warriors: A New Beginning


Welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors. Today’s snippet comes from my new book, Speak Tenderly To HerTory begins taking his future into consideration and finds that Isobel just might be a part of it. As always, I love your comments and feedback. The synopsis is below.

As they inched along in traffic, Tory’s mind kept going back to the questions he had been pondering earlier. Though he was preoccupied, he did notice Isobel glance at him every so often. 

“What?” he finally asked. 

She turned red and looked forward to the cars in front of them. He thought she might clam up, but she didn’t. 

“You look different with a beard, you look good.”

Tory smiled at the compliment. 


Isobel has4-Speak Tenderly To Her spent her life running from the mistakes of her past, but she is ready to settle down now. Unfortunately second chances aren’t easy to come by, especially when you’ve hurt the person you love the most and Isobel did that four years ago, when she walked out on her husband Tory.

Thanks to the machinations of their pastor though, Isobel finds herself back under the same roof as Tory. The familiarity has her yearning for what used to be, but she knows there’s no way he’s going to accept the truth of her return, much less love her again. And she’s right: when Tory is confronted with all the pain and emotions he thought he’d left behind, he refuses to let go of his bitterness. But as he speaks tenderly to her at their pastor’s behest, the love he once felt for her begins to surface and fill his heart.

Now, as the two struggle with forgiving and being forgiven, they find that reconciliation is possible – but only if they look beyond what was and deal with the trouble that’s followed Isobel back into Tory’s arms.

  1. Interesting little moment between them. Isobel just feels so fragile and wounded (reading between the lines of your excerpts), which I think suits the character so well. Great snippet!
