Loving From Afar – Mona Ingram


What would you do if your perfect life was shattered by a series of uncontrollable events? Allison Ransome loses everything; everything except her love for Cole Slater, the young man she planned to marry after graduation.

Gutted by Allison’s perceived treachery, Cole moves on with his life. Ten years later, he returns home, telling himself he will avoid the woman who broke his heart.
But nothing goes as planned. Can Allison and Cole forget the past and come to terms with the events that tore them apart?

Loving From Afar is Book One in The Women of Independence series, and is Allison’s story. Book Two is titled The Last Goodbye, and is Danielle’s story. Book Three is titled Never Look Back, and is mainly Maya’s story, with a wrap-up of all the characters of the series you’ve come to love.

From the Author
Loving From Afar is Book One in The Women of Independence series. I’ve created the fictional small town of Independence from my fond memories of all the small towns I’ve visited in British Columbia. The setting is the Okanagan Valley, an area I know well. It’s a beautiful area with a long history of fruit growing, and is unmarred by any large industry. A perfect backdrop for this love story that will break your heart, then put it back together.
