Anticipating Sunrise is a collection of 12 stories which prove that love is all around us and that it can be found anywhere from the aisles of your local supermarket to the shifting tides of time.
Sadly, love can be lost in these places as well but that possibility will never stop humans from looking for love since as the magnificent Alfred Lord Tennyson so eloquently stated:
“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”
“The Right Note” starts the collection telling a touching story of love found by a lonely successful middle-aged couple while the last story, “Time and Time Again,” tells of a love lost in the folds of time.
In between are 10 other stories that cover the rest of the spectrum of love.
