A Major Hurdle book cover


Patricia Sims

Imagine, a second chance at love and happiness comes along when you least expect it, and it is nonetheless, very welcomed. But along with that love comes setbacks, disappointments, fears, and hopelessness which is also unexpected. All these things are minor compared to the last disaster that threatens to categorically destroy your entire world.

Catherine Adams finds in Dr. Philip Cagney, a college professor, a love that is unique, but she finds herself afraid, hesitant to take the next step–allowing the past to paint a foggy picture of the future. Thrust in the midst of a cautionary tale with her new love, she ignores all the warning signs until it is almost too late for a comeback. Only her faith in God gives her the strength to press on. How do you fight an unseen enemy? How can you claim victory when the person you are accused of murdering is hell-bent on framing you from beyond the grave and beyond?

Catherine Adams is fortunate to have a spiritual support system in place and her faith is tested and with the help of a higher power, she is able to endure, realizing that some battles can only be won on the spiritual level. The murder trial is an eye opener for everyone involved within the college community as the events leading to the trial unfolds. The community is divided as to Catherine’s guilt or innocence, and many false theories had been suggested with none seemingly to be close to the truth.

The information disclosed during the trial, though alarming in contents and sequence, proved to everyone in attendance what was really at stake. When it seems all is lost, a higher power intervenes, and the love and happiness Catherine dared to take hold of is available and all questions are finally answered.
