The Awakened Fate Series, Book 1
By Cara Malone
How many times have you walked past your soul mate before you noticed her?
College senior Leah McAllister is quickly approaching a new chapter of her life, and she’s not ready for any of the things that come after graduation. The job market is grim, adult responsibility looms, and when her job writing for the school paper sends her to interview the magnetic Morgan, she even begins questioning her sexuality.
Morgan Park, a few years older and more worldly than Leah, seems to have it all – or at least she did, until her girlfriend started showing signs of bipolar disorder just as they decided to start a family together. Now her life is unraveling before her eyes and she just needs something – or someone – to hold onto.
Life in a small town has been weaving Leah and Morgan slowly together, but their worlds collide in one intense meeting that leaves them each with a decision to make – follow their hearts to each other, or go their separate ways and keep sleepwalking through life.
This 15,000-word novella is the prequel to Cara Malone’s debut novel, Awakened (April 2017).
