When We Were Amazing is about a lot of life transitions—a boy grows into a man, keeping secrets, ostensibly to save, drunk driving death of a spouse, the passing of a parent. But nowhere under heaven is there anything more horrific—the loss of your baby before your eyes.
This week’s SIX:
In the delighted tunnel vision of a small child, three year old Livvie bolts into the street. This, the horrified reaction of her mother. When I wrote this scene, tears streamed down my face—the ineffable connection all mothers have to their child shattered my heart. How the world would cease if the unthinkable were to happen before a mother’s eyes.
She froze, blood turning to ice in her veins. Power unknown shot through her. Muscles fired
to life propelling her forward. She was at the front bumper of the white sedan before she could
take another breath. Hands on the hood, she pushed with the strength of heaven. The car rolled
back, and Livvie’s crumpled form appeared, an unnatural twisting of limbs, clothing, hair.
But like a china doll, Livvie lay motionless, broken.
When tragedy nearly destroys Brian’s family wine business, can this reluctant young heir forfeit his dreams and online love?
