About the Book:

My Glass Heart Can't Be Broken

How can you love someone, lose them and not get your heart broken in the process? Cedrine Linstor thought there was no surviving a lost love until it happened to her.

Her father’s stroke had taken him away forever, and her mother had to work extra hours having little time to spend with her. The only one she could turn to were her childhood friends, Isaiah and Greg.

Isaiah’s disability was shortly recognized by his teacher. His parents made the difficult decision to send him to a boarding school hours away where there was a specialized instructor.

Greg Merisotti worked at the horse ranch where Cedrine and Isaiah kept their mares, until a seminary graduate asked Greg to watch over his church.

Greg had an epiphany there, which he shared with the young priest. The priest requested he attend a mission and look for God’s signs to help figure out his future.

Cedrine had no one, until she began receiving anonymous love letters. At first it gave her hope, but as the letters kept coming with each clue leading nowhere, she wanted to give up her search until she got an astounding idea. Will you be able to figure it out before Cedrine does?
