Her neighbors and daughter believe she’s a widow who lost her husband in the war. But Jeb is alive and prosperous and Cherry’s one indulgence is a much anticipated monthly meeting with him that usually devolves into a shouting match.
When Jeb Carter becomes ill, perhaps even dying, discord changes to despair and he asks her to be with him to the end. Avoiding the questions of family and friends, they leave Texas on a journey that takes them to a love they’ve long denied.
Gem Sivad was raised on a horse farm in Ohio, graduated with honors from Ohio State University, and moved to West Virginia where she met and married her husband.
She and her family live in a rural area where wild turkey, bear, and deer wander the country roads. Watching them is inspiration for her muse. She enjoys writing all genres but has a particular passion for steamy historical romance and twisted paranormal tales.
Although she has hermit tendencies, she loves hearing from fans. For updates (or if you're an avid Words With Friends junkie) visit her Face Book Author Page@ facebook.com/GemSivadAuthor; Website: gemsivad.com; and Subscribe to her newsletter: gemsivad.com/dreamcatcher.
