Handfasting: A Celtic ceremony of engagement or betrothal.
Katie and Steven meet while traveling abroad and fall in love. Deciding they are too young to marry, they plan to finish school and start their careers. But before going their separate ways, they bind themselves together in a secret ceremony to honor their love.
Ten years after the handfasting, Steven fulfils his promise to find Katie.
They find they are still in love and agree to marry. But there is a man in Katie’s past who isn’t willing to give up his plans of marrying her himself. Bill has known Katie all her life, and the small Virginia town they’re from treats any hint of scandal with censure, ostracism, and shame. Events take a violent twist, and he convinces her that she isn’t worthy of Steven’s love and threatens to destroy Katie’s dreams.
Will Steven fight for their love?
Will Katie see Bill’s abuse for what it is, or is she doomed to a tortured life as his wife?
The Handfasting is a story of love renewed, a suitor spurned, and a struggle for healing.
It is a story of love that survives.
David lives in Columbia South Carolina, with his wife and their blue-eyed cat, Bonnie. The Reunion, his first novel, is set in nearby Charleston. The Handfasting, his second book, was published in June.
He enjoys traveling, photography, baking bread, and the Carolina beaches.
David has photographed subjects as varied as prehistoric ruins on the islands of Scotland, star trails, sea gulls, and a Native American powwow. He and his wife have traveled widely in the United States and the United Kingdom. During one trip to Scotland, they visited Crathes Castle, the ancestral home of the Burnett family near Aberdeen. In The Reunion, Michael’s journey through England and Scotland allows him to sketch many places they have visited.
David spent years in school(!), and he has graduate degrees in psychology and education. He and his wife have two daughters.
