A Compelling Story of Life's Triumphs
By Brenton G. Yorgason

This novel is about life, as viewed by two aging "new" sweethearts. Read on several levels, it becomes the perfect compliment to the previous book, CAPTURING YOUR DREAMS.

This fictitious story is set in Paradise, Kansas in 1953. Aging spinster Ida May Miner has spent her entire 76 years caring for her blind sister, Blanch. Blanch has just died and Ida is left alone to survive her last years in a non-caring village that is anything but Paradise! Then along comes 78-year-old widower Hy Vincent, a newcomer who is searching for love...and for peace.

Come to Paradise in this timely, timeless moment in time and experience the miracle that takes place in the lives of these two charming people. Each has much to offer the other, as well as to the reader. A must-read novel of love, life, and caring.
