I can't wait for you to read Everton and Daisy's story!
Back cover summary
Most people call her Delilah. But he called her Daisy. He was seventeen and a guest in her family’s home the summer she turned fifteen. They weren’t supposed to fall in love. But Everton knew two things early on. One: He knew that she was a rule he was most likely going to break. And two: He knew that if anyone discovered their secret, he would be forced to leave. That day came in early August. And it came without warning—or a goodbye. Now, she’s twenty-one. He’s twenty-three. And she’s standing right in front of him—close enough to touch. But he can’t. It’s been six, long years, but one thing remains: she’s still forbidden. And this time, he can’t cross the line. 💞

I love the concept of paying it forward, and I wanted to capture that theme in a way that children can enjoy and understand. And because I grew up on a farm in a little, Midwestern town, I wanted to have barnyard and woodland animals tell the story. Rabbit starts the journey that meanders through Farmer Brandt's farm and ultimately ends with Rabbit's "gift" coming back to him. I hope you enjoy, and I also hope that these characters inspire children to pay it forward in their own way. Happy Reading! ♥ Laura

I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
