*Annabelle by Nancy Christie

We all have our fantasiesour hopes and dreams of what we want our future to be. But what happens when our fantasies are based on an erroneous interpretation of past events? A lonely young woman, all Annabelle wants is to love and be loved. But the twin emotions of fear and guilt, from a passion born on a summer day so many years ago, hold her fast. In the short story “Annabelle”, author Nancy Christie paints a lyrical portrait of a young woman, the daughter of a painter and his devoted model. Their obsession with the creation of art binds the family and twists the soul of a child. (A complete short story from Christie’s collection “Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories”)

But a new widows first season with a problem boy erupts into conflict, anger and danger, when she uncovers a web of conspiracies that threaten his life and could destroy their entire society.
