Happy Autism Awareness Month! In an attempt to help raise awareness about the realities of life with autism, I’ll be posting on a different autism-related topic each Tuesday throughout the month of April. Tomorrow, on April 2, I’ll post a special autism-related post in honor of World Autism Awareness Day.
It’s a busy month here at The West Corner, and it will wrap up on April 29 with an interview with inspirational romance author LoRee Peery about her new book, Rainn on My Parade, which released today! I’m sure you’re wondering how an inspirational romance ties in with Autism Awareness Month. In this case, LoRee has included an autistic child in the story, which makes it perfect for this month. So, if you’re looking for something new to read, check out Rainn on My Parade and come back on the 29th to learn more about the author!
After firefighter Rainn Harris rescues Geneva Carson from being stuck in a tree, she feels she owes him. Helping to care for his autistic niece comes easy, but her attraction to Rainn is a different story. Being drawn to a man twelve years her junior metes internal havoc as Geneva attempts to balance responsibility and personal fulfillment. And the prospect of becoming a middle-aged mom to a special-needs child sends Geneva into a tailspin of conflicting emotions.
As the custodial parent for his young niece, Rainn is determined to be a better parent than his absentee sister. When Geneva agrees to help care for Mia, Rainn is overjoyed. He admires Geneva’s compassion and enthusiasm for life, and expects she’ll be a positive influence on Mia. What he doesn’t expect is to fall in love with the beautiful and vital woman. But Geneva’s hung up on their age difference, and he must convince her of his sincerity before they will ever have a chance at happiness together.
As tension threatens to pull them apart, both must learn to rely on the Lord to direct their futures-whether that means two lives joined or paths in opposite directions.
Rainn on My Parade by LoRee Peery is available in print and as an ebook from White Rose Publishing.
