Garden of Time
A beautiful piece of artwork...a lovely painting to be exact. Emma's life changes the moment she sees it. True believers claim that it’s magical; skeptics say that it’s just a colorful piece of canvas. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
Emma Lee Parkinson's life appears to be perfect. She's young and beautiful and lives in an elegant high-rise condominium with her rich, handsome husband. Her closet is full of designer clothes, shoes, and purses. Dining at elegant restaurants, attending cocktail parties or upscale gala events are typical nights out on the town for her. Luxurious vacations are taken at least twice a year. This life of leisure allows Emma to pursue personal interests as well. She loves shopping for antiques, strolling through art galleries, museums, and furthering her own artistic skills with painting classes. Who could ask for more?
But appearances can be deceiving. Emma hates her life. With a passion.
Intimidated by a deep, dark secret, she lives in a constant state of dread. Battered, abused, and even threatened with death, she's often on the edge of panic. Paralyzed by fear, she's certain there's no way out. Until the day she attempts to hang her latest find - a painting so enchanting that she buys it on a whim.
Little does she know... this painting will change her life forever.
