The man she’s certain will transform her hopes for the future into realities … until she wakes up in a hospital bed, unable to remember how she got there or why her new husband is not by her side. As the haze clears and her memory returns, Autumn realizes none of those dreams will come true—at least not with Matt.

At home, Matt’s absence haunts Autumn, making her world seem dim. Desperate to get away from the sadness that engulfs her, she embarks on a journey to create a new life for herself, one where she can let go of the past and all the pain that threatens to destroy her—but letting go is never easy.

Can Autumn accept the truth of what happened and finally believe that as long as she has life and hope her dreams will never die?

You know that book that keeps you up at night, turning the pages as your eyes burn – and you tell yourself just one more chapter, then another and another, knowing you’ll pay for it in the morning, but you Just. Keep. Reading.

This is that book. This is that trilogy.

He’s broken. Her world is falling apart. Neither believes they will trust again.

Lincoln Fraser’s hiding out. His girlfriend cheated on him, he blew a major account at work, and now he’s lying to everyone he loves. After months of chugging craft beer and waking up filthy and alone, he’s ready to pack his bags and head to the woods. Literally.

Kali Johnson feels stuck. Her husband’s gone, her son won’t talk, and she’s living in a mold-filled apartment that's about to be condemned. Things couldn't get worse … until she hears the scurry of little feet in the night. Now she starts her days by checking traps for dead rats.

When a freak accident places Kali and her son in Lincoln’s path, a split-second decision alters their lives forever.

Thought-provoking and brutally honest, complex and deep, Behind Our Lives, Book One in the Behind Our Lives Trilogy, will grip you, breaking your heart at every turn. “Once you start reading, you won’t put it down.”  

Don’t believe me? That quote above comes from Sandra Landry, a reader who happened upon my book, kind of like you just did.

Still not sure if you want to buy? That makes sense. The world is full of books, so why should you want this one?

Well, maybe you don't.

If you like characters who seem like paper doll cut outs—you know exactly what to expect from them—practically perfect people living practically perfect lives, and everything gets wrapped up nicely in the end, the way life is ... never, then this book isn't for you.

However, if you want a character you can see yourself in, even the not so great parts of yourself, if you want human frailties, realistic people in realistic situations, and if you won’t shy away when those people or situations get a little ugly—say when you’d like to give Kali a smack or tell Lincoln to smarten up already—then this is the book for you.

Because the truth is, you may not like the characters in this book all the time.

You may even hate them.

But if you've read this far and your interest is still piqued, as I mentioned before, I think they'll grip you.

Still not sure? Maybe it’ll help if you have something to compare the Behind Our Lives Trilogy to.

Love This Is Us?

If you’ve not seen it, it’s a TV drama (also on Netflix) full of characters who definitely don't have it together. They're prideful and stubborn and mess up. A lot.

They've got baggage, and not chic, designer baggage. This luggage is worn in. It's tattered, kinda stinks, and makes them kind of stink.

But, as the story unfolds, you get where they’re coming from. You see that with all their faults, they're also kind and generous and loyal.

They're doing the best they can with the lives they've been given and, in some circumstances, the lives they created for themselves.

That's Kali and Lincoln.

Prideful, stubborn, deeply wounded and so long as you don’t succumb to the occasional urge to throw the book across the room, hard not to love.

Theresa Caputo, the star of TLC’s Long Island Medium and New York Times bestselling author, provides a guide to overcoming grief, filled with inspiring lessons from Spirit and astonishing stories from the clients who have been empowered and healed by her spiritual readings.

After more than a decade of being a practicing medium, Theresa Caputo shares the powerful lessons she has learned about grief, healing, and finding happiness in the wake of tragedy. In almost every reading she gives, Spirit insists that people begin to embrace their lives again. But not everyone knows where to start, and putting back together the pieces of a life marked by loss is never easy. Sometimes, you need spiritual guidance—and that’s where Theresa comes in.

With her energetic, positive, and encouraging tone, Theresa uses the lessons from Spirit to guide you through grief toward a place of solace and healing. Each lesson is grounded in her clients’ experiences of losing loved ones, their encounters with Spirit during readings, and the ways in which they’ve been able to heal and grow.

Each chapter is filled with activities to help you find your “new normal”—including journaling, individual and group exercises, meditations, and moments of reflection—based on the truths that Theresa has gathered from Spirit. Good Grief—“an excellent resource for those who wish to be in communication with deceased loved ones” (Library Journal)—will help you to feel stronger and more optimistic about what the future has in store for you.
