First in the FATED LOVES collection: A ghostly romantic novel from USA-Today bestselling author Edie Claire. 4.5-Star, Romantic Times Top Pick and winner of the Road to Romance Reviewer’s Choice Award! Downloaded over two million times worldwide. Years and distance kept the memories at bay. But back at home, the past is ready and waiting to haunt her... Eighteen years have passed since Joy's childhood best friend, Jenny, met her death in a tragic car accident just a few days after their senior prom. A broken Joy left their small Kentucky hometown shortly after -- determined never to come back. But when her father's illness forces her to return, she realizes that neither time nor distance has truly healed her troubled soul. Plagued with nightmares of the accident and crippled by a vague fear whose source she can't identify, Joy realizes that in order to move on she must face the truth behind several disturbing gaps in her memory of that fateful spring. But the only person who can help her is a man she despises: Jenny's erstwhile boyfriend Jeff, now a respected doctor, whose carelessness as a teenager was the cause of Jenny's horrendous death -- and Joy's own emotional destruction. Can she ever forgive? She may have no choice but to try. Because both the danger she sensed -- and the childhood friendship she treasured -- now suddenly seem very much alive... “LONG TIME COMING is a remarkably well blended romance and mystery, with fascinating shades of the paranormal. The way each layer of Joy's discovery of her forgotten past is revealed is deftly done and exceptionally suspenseful. The relationship between Joy and her parents is heart warming.

What exactly are two single women, whose age is somewhere north of seventy, doing on a westbound Greyhound? Life in Morgan Crossroads, Alabama is as normal as its residents can make it before the tallest man to ever grace the porch of Brown’s General Store shows up on foot. He and his dog Spotlight, whose parts don’t all work exactly right, leave after a single night, having uncovered a fifty year-old secret that will forever transform Morgan Crossroads and its beloved residents—most of all, Marcella Peabody. When Marcella and her life-long friend Eva Jo Clomper take off on an unannounced bus ride to Texas with little more than a pile of luggage and Marcella’s wish to bring back the past, the Morgan Crossroads gossip lines light up. (Most tales that women in Polly’s House of Beauty or men on the front porch of Brown’s General Store hear have at least a morsel of truth in them. The trick is to figure out which do and which don’t.) Long Time Coming is both a love story and a story of the love that residents of a small rural community can have for each other. It is the first book in the Morgan Crossroads series of clean small town and rural fiction from author Tom Buford. (Long Time Coming was previously published as Then Came Edgar.)

"It is not God's plan to take us by surprise. Throughout scripture there is the rolling thunder of the Deity's voice resounds: "I'm going to do it! Get ready! Pay close attention! Here comes what I promised!" We call such predictions "prophecy," history written before it happens. And about nothing is God more prophetic, more predictive, than Jesus Christ.
