Mountain Moon: A Nova Garrett Novel (Book 2 In Series) by A. E. Hanaway
THE MEADOW: There is an old saying that comes from the Cherokee Indians, a proud and spiritual people: In the mountains there is a magical meadow. Perfectly circular. Filled with a variety of flowers, which share only one trait. Cinnabar. So, named by the old ones; they are abundant and extremely rare. They draw you in with a haunting fragrance that floats on the wind. Then it seeps into your mind, and wraps tightly around your heart to capture your soul.
Cinnabar. A beautiful name for a mystical flower. Cinnabar. The Redbud trees surround the meadow, protecting it as a knight protects the castle of his sire. The beautifully blooming, ancient guardians intertwined with the majestic and proud cedar. Together they form an almost impenetrable barrier as they kept a vigil over the rare flowers of the meadow.
Every year, on the seventh hour of the fourth day, if you happen to be in the meadow and truly believe with all your heart, the Mountain Moon will shine down on you. If so, you will surely see your true love. If legend is true, then I will search for that meadow someday.
My name is Novangelia Leeann Garrett, they call me… Nova, or at work it is simply, Runt. I live in the small tourist town of Tellico Plains, Tennessee. The town is set at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. In the early morning during the spring, summer, and fall, a smoke-colored haze rolls slowly down the slope. It reminds me of an avalanche of snow that silently descends, and then consumes everything in its path, hiding it from the outside world.
This beautiful, yet small and picturesque town, which I have come to love, I now call my home. In fact, it is the only home I have ever known. Whenever I gaze at the mountains, there is a longing that takes hold of my heart. It feels more like home, safe and secure. The feeling is stronger than the town itself. There is a feeling of danger there, and the need to escape from the pain that waits for me.
The last two years have not been easy for me. I fight the turmoil that reels inside me every day while I try to retrieve the memories of my past. I do this to try to bring order to my life, clear my mind, and put love back into my soul.
You would think that being gifted in so many ways would make my plight a little easier, but it has become so much more difficult. My story continues!
