Stranded With Charlotte
Publisher: Mark S. R. Sterling
Sometimes the best path between two points is not the straight line.
A voyage of self discovery awaits Jon Howard as he travels across the country for his mother's funeral. Leaving his beloved Charlotte, North Carolina behind, Jon and his troubled psyche travel to Hawaii where his detested stepfather awaits. Along the way, both his soul and the airplane break down. To pass the time, his fellow stranded travelers each tell a short story of their own sensual discoveries. Through these tales, they teach Jon not only about sex, but also about life, love, and, forgiveness.
Karen is not sure why she is attracted to the shy engineer. His gentle manners and the fact that he has a job are a welcome change from her previous lovers. When fate intervenes, and the couple finds that there is no room at the inn, they discover what truly binds them together.
Reality eclipses his dreams, and Jon discovers that the distance he has traveled has been much farther than merely achieving his destination.
It may be too late to change the past, but the future has yet to begin.
