In her new novel, “Triple Destiny” (published by Abbott Press), author Diana Colson takes readers on a mystical, romantic journey to exotic places in a story of loss, love and reincarnation.
Catherine Scanlon runs a small dance studio in the Midwest. Her 6-year-old daughter, Katie, is captivated by Balinese dance with its fabled characters, glorious costumes, and dancers as young as she. When Catherine’s troubled, alcoholic husband, Luke, becomes violent, Catherine takes Katie and escapes. They hide in Florida in hopes that Luke will not find them.
In Sarasota, they meet Dr. Nick Kontos, a marine biologist at the city’s world-class aquarium, who is drawn to the beautiful Catherine and her enchanting daughter. The three have barely become acquainted when tragedy strikes and their worlds are blown apart. “Triple Destiny” traces the path which first separates and then reunites these three fated characters on the far side of the world.
An excerpt from “Triple Destiny”:
“He was so tuned into her by now that he had but one goal, to express caring and human contact. Nick wanted only to bring beauty back into Catherine’s shattered life, and to erase the terrible anger and tragedy she had experienced. In that moment, he became an artist-lover capable of expressing things he never knew existed.”
