OPPOSITES CAN BE A PERFECT FIT

Jodi ThomasWhen I began the Ransom Canyon series, I knew SUNRISE CROSSING would be Yancy’s story. So when I started writing, he was already whispering his story in my ear.

Yancy Grey was little more than a kid when he went to prison for a robbery and five years later, when he’s free, he heads to a little town called Crossroads, Texas.  He thinks he is worthless, but is taken in by a group of senior citizens and slowly finds his roots in town.  SUNRISE CROSSING opens with him beginning work on an old house called the Gypsy House where he was born.

Yancy works alone every night restoring the place where he was born.  When he hears a noise in the attic, he discovers a woman hiding there.  He calls Tori Vilanie Rabbit because that’s what he thought was in the attic.  She’s running from life and he’s afraid to step into living, but somehow they build a gentle kind of friendship that grows into love.

In SUNRISE CROSSING Yancy Grey restored an old memory of a farmhouse from my past with the help of a woman he found hiding in the barn. As the house came together so did a sweet love story of two people who’d always been alone.

SUNRISE CROSSING will pull you into the lives of characters that you’ll remember long after you’ve finished the story.
