A story of love and loss

BY ANNE LAFFERTY

This book is really about impetuous love, you see, and its inevitable conclusion. Core Hollow invites you through our lost portal, that place of heart’s connection and hard-hearted truth, the place we fiercely loved, the place that ultimately changed us forever.

And for every love there is a first time, right?

Did I ever tell you about the first time?

That was the night we drove straight up the hard, laddered gravel road, right to the top of the ridge in a rusted Ford pickup.

And then what?

There was nothing, No road, just a sighing eternity of grass, and no house, just the waiting woods, echoing the moony cry of owls, shadowing the secret shine of wolf gaze.

Our vehicle was at maximum load with beat-up furniture, clothes and kids. Three kids rode in the truck bed, holding a cardboard box with a big yellow cat in it, dangling their feet over the missing tail gate. A black dog the size of The Hound of the Baskervilles sat on a dresser drawer, eyeballing two turkeys in a barrel. All of our assets were merged into one piece of property…this.

The moon rolled its blind, white eye over us…once upon a time. .Core Hollow – Anne Lafferty – Amazon.com
