Spring, Beauty and Books: Christine Robinson

Author Christine Robinson

Winter, Beauty: During Thanksgiving time, our two older dogs crossed the rainbow bridge into God’s new Garden of Eden. A few weeks later, we miraculously met and fell in love with two five-month-old Border Aussie siblings. Maddie and Max were bred on a horse ranch in Ramona, CA. It wasn’t Spring, Beauty, but it was a happy, December winter day. The two pups were in an outdoor pen at the ranch. As soon as we stepped into the pen, Maddie (black & white, more Border Collie) jumped into my partner, Robert’s arms. Max (golden and white, more Australian Shepard) jumped up and kissed my face. At that moment, we were happily chosen for their forever home. 

Spring, Beauty: Maddie and Max, now 9 months old, are energetic, smart, and loving pups. Showstoppers, they are magnets for animal lovers, who smile and pat them. Best of all, they share, in depth, their own incredible doggie stories. What better way to spread Spring, Beauty.  

Spring, Beauty and Books: May Flowers and a Debut book coming: Three Years of Her Life: A Novel. To be published on Amazon, May 3, 2022.

Three Years of Her Life: A Novel

This debut novel is an indelible portrait of family love, trust, commitment, and unrelenting prejudice. A stirring tale that rides the line between historical fiction and romance, inspired by a famous musician’s hidden secret in Germany.

Three Years of Her Life, set in New England and Central Europe, is similar in concern and significant issues to bestselling American Epic books of the Great Depression, The Great War and the U.S. South. People and places focused, the novel’s heartwarming and heart-wrenching themes mark history in unsettled times.

A mystery woman’s photo, in question, is in the famous grandfather’s gold pocket watch for over fifty years. It devastates Elizabeth’s estranged grandmother, and she convinces Elizabeth to find the link. At a loss how, Elizabeth’s on track to be a nurse not a detective, she gets help from Erik, the doctor who captures her heart. He becomes obsessed with uncovering her grandfather’s secret and discovers more in Germany than the family can take. Now he shares a family heritage. When Elizabeth tries to stand up for Erik and her grandfather, it backfires.

Complicating her own life, Elizabeth falls into an entanglement with her guitar teacher. It’s only a longed-for connection to musicians, her absent father and dead grandfather, but it causes uncertainty. She’s now torn between two very different men. And what happens if and when she lets one of them go? Erik tips the balance for Elizabeth’s decision. He proves his character by risking his life transporting East Berlin hospital patients to the West through the Berlin Wall. But, what if border guards trap him in East Berlin? Unbeknown to Elizabeth, before Erik leaves on the mission, he sets up her future. And, he’s dead serious about his plan.

Elizabeth’s estranged grandmother convinces her to find the link to a mystery woman. Her photo is in Grandfather’s gold pocket watch. At a loss how, Elizabeth, a nurse, gets help from Erik, a doctor who captures her heart.”

Christine, I love the story of your two puppies, you saved them and they made your Spring.
Your novel “Three Years Of Her Life” sounds romantic and intriguing and the cover design is evocative of an era gone by. Is it by any chance some of your life story in there? I wish you great success with this new publication.

Spring, Beauty and Books: Yvette Calleiro

Author Yvette Calleiro

South Florida doesn’t really experience the seasons, so Spring doesn’t show itself as it does in the northern states. Sure, we have some frigid days (by South Floridian standards), but we mostly enjoy pleasant weather with bright blue skies and swaying palm trees. Despite the lack of visual representation, the energy of Spring is ours for the embracing. Spring is about renewal and growth. It encompasses dreaming and setting new goals. During this season, I enjoy spending more time outdoors. Whether it’s bike riding, walking, visiting the beach, or camping, nature rejuvenates my soul. This season also excites me because my son and I plan our summer road trip, a journey that creates long-lasting beautiful memories. Our steps are lighter, our vision is brighter, and our hearts begin soaring in Spring.

Harmony

step away from life’s hustle and bustle
let go of the need to do – just be
enter lush, magical forests
exhale your envy and angst
inhale earth’s energy
be one with nature
embrace jade’s gift
joyfulness
calming
peace

My novel:

My newest novel is called HYPE. Here is the book blurb:

“Cici’s junior year in high school is going to be the best year ever. Popular co-captain of the varsity cheerleading team, she’s dating the starting quarterback. Even her jealous co-captain’s attempts to steal her boyfriend can’t curb her enthusiasm.
When her mom moves in with her fiancé, a handsome, wealthy man, only one small detail threatens Cici’s perfect life. The school’s social pariah is about to become her stepsister, and Cici wants nothing to do with her.
Everything changes when someone Cici cares about throws her life into a tailspin, and the one person Cici couldn’t stand becomes her only ally.”

Warning: This story contains scenes of sexual assault.
