Enjoy an Excerpt:
Simone Herron stared out her 5th floor Park Avenue office window. Manhattan, New York, the city that never sleeps. Below her, crowds of people bustled to and fro, arms laden with shopping bags. Tourists gawked at the beautiful and spectacular views from Time Square to Central Park. Others walked hurriedly into delicatessens and restaurants. It was close to lunch time. She never questioned why people wanted to be there. It was obvious. Manhattan was known for its world-class cultural attractions, thriving restaurant scene and scintillating shops. It was truly an amazing site to see. No matter what time of day, downtown Manhattan was busy and crowded. New York City, known for its visual art and entertainment, captured the hearts of all who embraced its presence. Who wouldn’t love it? So, why did it feel like her heart was no longer captured?
For Simone, the Big Apple wasn’t the same anymore. After ten years of living in the city, she still loved it. New York was an ideal place to work, shop, live and entertain. But, her life felt lackluster. Simone turned away from the window. Even the busyness of the city and all it had to offer, could no longer mask her restlessness. Something was missing
Five feet six, Simone maintained her hourglass figure with a daily workout regimen. Her toasted caramel complexion complemented her long, thick honey brown hair which she wore in twists. Simone worked as a paralegal for a prestigious law firm with some of the most gifted and intelligent lawyers. She studied the notes that sat on her desk. She absolutely loved her job and would not trade what she’d learned from them for anything in the world. She had established a great rapport in her workplace. Because of her work ethic, attention to detail and professionalism, she would come highly recommended to any law firm she wanted to work for. Could a move be the answer to her restlessness?
She sat and mindlessly shuffled the papers. To make matters worse, the holiday season had arrived with all of its cheery fanfare. The holidays were her least favorite time of the year. Simone wished she could skip over November and December and head straight into January. For the past few years, she’d spent her Thanksgivings volunteering for the dinner drive at The Sheppard’s Gate, a women’s shelter. Christmas, she would spend her time singing Christmas carols with her church at Faith Bible Center. When did her life evolve into this monotonous rut?
