Your father and I have something important to tell you.”
Darcy Wills glanced at her sister Jamee, wondering if she knew what their mother was about to announce.
Jamee, fourteen years old and two years younger than Darcy, shrugged her shoulders and sat down at the table.
“We’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately,”
Mom said nervously, sitting down at the head of the table.
Darcy’s father sat beside her, gently holding her hand.
“We’ve decided to give our marriage a second chance.”
Darcy’s heart jumped into her throat, and Jamee nearly fell out of her chair.
Jamee cheered, putting her hands on either side of her face as if she could barely believe what she just heard.
her father added.
“We’ve been going to counseling and we’re gonna try and make it work, for us, for you two, and for Grandma.”
Dad’s eyes glistened as he spoke, and Darcy knew he meant every word.
Only months ago, he had reappeared after a five-year absence.
Darcy was just eleven years old when he abandoned the family.
For years, she had made up stories to explain why he had left.
But later, when she found out that he had taken off with another woman, Darcy decided she would never forgive him for the hurt he caused.

Why is it locked?
We employ a team of editors who ensure that our technology has properly converted each book into its new Literal format.
We are also a scrappy young startup looking to make sure that we spend our resources wisely.
This means that in some cases we only edit and publish small portions of a book to begin with.
This lets us save on costs and helps focus our efforts on completing only the books that paying customers actually want to read.
