In the fourth book of The Barnstable Chronicles series, we find David Chase enjoying one of the most successful classical music careers in the age of social media. Every time he turns around, he finds more success. However, there is little or no success in his personal life.
David threw away the two most important relationships in his young life... Charlie Danner, still the love of his life... and that of his best friend, Parker Miller.
All the success in the world can't seem to fill the emptiness in David's heart.
Nick Jacobs has had a pretty crappy life. His mother is a drug and alcohol abusing prostitute. He never knew who his father was. Sadly, Nick ends up in the foster care system in Austin, Texas. After seven years in and out of different foster families, he ends up in a group home. Everything changes when the White family takes him to lunch and spends an afternoon with Nick at their home. It's a world that Nick had never even dreamed of. Will he fit in? Will he ever experience the kind of unconditional love most others take for granted?
This is the third book in The Barnstable Chronicles. While you don't necessarily have to read the first two stories to enjoy this one, I highly recommend that you at least read Book One, Stitcher as many of the people and events in that story are referenced here. If you haven't read the second book, Charlie Danner Finds His Way, you can read it at any time.
Charlie Danner Finds His Way is a spinoff of Stitcher, my most recent story. Charlie is a secondary character in that story but quickly became a favorite of my readers. While you don't have to read Stitcher to become fully engaged in Charlie's story, it would be helpful as there will be many connections made between the two stories. Charlie is a special guy. I fell in love with him, too!
Enjoy the story and please leave comments when you finish a chapter. Those comments are so much more than ego boosts - they actually help me decide in the direction I take the story!
