A Walk in the Clouds by: Stephanie Burkhart
Mind you, I'm not a big Keenu Reeves fan, but when I saw "A Walk in the Clouds," I just fell in love with that movie.
I loved the setting – San Francisco and California wine country. San Francisco is classic with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and the huge bay. There's always something happening there. The bridge lends itself as a romantic image of the city. The vineyards are a natural romantic as well, portraying the rare beauty of nature. The amazing landscapes of the movie shot an arrow straight to my heart.
I liked the characters in the movie – a soldier trying to find his way, and a heroine struggling to define her identify. I drew on these elements when I sat down to write my latest 99 cent story – Journey of the Heart.
Set in Sonoma, CA, it's 1946. James DiMera fought for his country in World War II, but when he comes back, he discovers he's lost his farm. Rachel Santori has lost her family to the war and she's about to lose her winery. Dare she trust her future to a man who is a drifter?
4, 5 Star Amazon Reviews.
I would recommend this short sweetie of a story. Good job, author. – AngelE, Amazon Reader.
"Your case threatened to run away, so I bribed it." Her sweet expression was an arrow through his heart.
"Really? What did you bribe it with?" He wiped the sweat off his brow with a handkerchief, caused from a combination of the summer heat and lifting the heavy cases.
He hooked his thumb toward his chest. "Are you offering me a job, Miss Santori?"
