Product Description

Geraldine Jordan, accustomed to living with her disability, learns the meaning of rejection early. To acquire a desirable suitor like Alistair McKenna -- the man of her lifelong dreams -- is clearly slim to none.

When a treasured aunt arranges marriage to esteemed Chicago banker in search of a wife and mother for his young ward, Geraldine finds hope. What does it matter it's a business proposition? A wedding is a wedding -- even if it doesn't include Alistair.

At her aunt's sudden passing, Geraldine finds herself under the care of her disgruntled Uncle Henry, who not only disapproves the business proposition; he's convinced she's unsuitable for any man. Blocking the betrothal, he hires Geraldine out as a servant to a patronizing family in desperate need of a governess.

Can Geraldine defy her uncle when she discovers her prospective groom is none other than her life-long love, Alistair McKenna?

EXCERPT

She waved a hand to stop him. "Please...don't explain anything. I've already made up my mind anyway. I shall work as your hired governess, Mr. McKenna."

His eyes widened. "But didn’t you think, or assume...I mean, should I not explain?"

At this point, she was not ready to hear what he might have to say. It would only make matters worse. She lifted her cane again, and held it in front of her, so he might get a good hard look at what she needed to get herself around each day. It was what her stepfather carved on it which was most important to her.

"I suppose if you think I'm suitable enough at least for governing a child, Mr. McKenna, then, no, there's nothing to explain right now. After all, what else am I good for? Hmm?"

She glared at him obstinately then turned toward the window, immediately embarrassed at what she just said. After closing her eyes briefly, Geraldine veered back. She shook shaking head and glanced over at Erin then back at him. "I apologize for that. What I just said was terribly rude. What I meant to say was--" What exactly had she meant to say?

Still she had to add one more jab. "I wonder if this is the time to be discussing my frailties and my inconveniences, especially since I've learned you disapprove of me as much as your brothers did."

He gave her a look of shock. "Disapprove? What made you think...hardly do I--" He stared at her in silence then finally finished. "I was going to explain."

She held up a hand to stop him, fixing her eyes on her skirt. "I've already informed my uncle I'd do this." She lifted her chin. "You see, I want no part of any union with you, sir -- not with any McKenna male. Marriage into your family couldn’t be further from my mind."

He looked stunned. "My grandmother suggested otherwise, Geraldine."

Twisting away and returning to her chair, she pretended to make herself more comfortable. "Whatever your grandmother or my aunt inferred, well, you no longer need to assume it's so. I have clearly changed my mind." Of course, when she said she had no interest in marrying Shaun Alistair McKenna, it was not exactly true -- okay, not at all true. Geraldine crossed her arms, angry with herself once again. She knew deep down, way deep down, she in no manner wanted to let go of the vision she alone held of herself and Alistair together. In truth, she did not want to think about Alistair in any way other than as a dear friend and potential husband. When she dreamed, she would have to make certain it happened only rarely from this point on. There was no reason he need know what might accidentally wander through her thoughts.

  1. That Impossible Dream will capture your heart 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2013

    "Decisions Book Two: That Impossible Dream" is a delightful combination of faith and hope, with a "princess story" feel stirred in. Geraldine, the main character, will quickly capture your heart and you will have to keep reading to find if her impossible dream will come true. There is also a nice mix of action and suspense that will keep you guessing until the end about the outcome. I highly recommend this book as I also recommended the first book in the series, "Decisions Book One: Say Goodbye to Yesterday." Great job. I can't wait to read the next book in the series...


  2. A Wonderful Story of Dreams Coming True 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2013


    I adored Geraldine and her story. This was a wonderful story of dreams coming true and the importance of seeking wise counsel.

    This story begins about 10 years after the first book and Geraldine has grown into a fine young woman. She is saddened by the death of her beloved Great-Aunt. Yet hopeful for the future as her Great-Aunt had arranged a marriage for her, but her Uncle Henry quickly destroys her hopes by informing her that she's not fit for marriage and he's arranged for her to be a nanny.

    The Geraldine of book one has grown up but she did not grow away from her faith in God. She believes in trusting him and following through with her commitments. She also teaches us about forgiveness. She reminds me of how we should all live, with a childlike faith in God.

    Although the ending was predictable, this was a quick read with some interesting incidents and characters along the way that made the story enjoyable.

    I'm looking forward to book 3 in this series.
