Let me present to you the newly revised covers for the Wings From Ashes…

How time flies and things change. She pulled up to the curb and put the car in park. Tara could see the property from her car. A rickety For-Sale sign hung on a wooden post. She wondered how long the property had been for sale. How could the…
