Thanks for joining us here on HORIZONSPAST.COM. I’m Lisa Ray, author of the novel HORIZONS PAST, inviting you to read my novel for free. After 20 years as a newspaper columnist, I finally wrote a novel.
Horizons Past examines the possibility of two people with opposite lifestyles developing a lasting relationship, when all they have in common is a shared goal – to escape who they are. Guilt, “Hollywood,” and a hurricane all collide, keeping the resolution just out of reach until the reclusive poet and movie star learn – letting go of each other is even harder than letting go of the past.

Approaching what was left of Fish Pass Road, State Park Ranger Jeffrey Randall slowed his Bronco and stopped before turning. Lottie looked at him. “It’s something we really have to do, right?” Jeffrey nodded agreement, but said nothing.
He had driven the twelve miles of Texas Park Road 361 between Mustang Island State Park and Port Aransas several times daily in the seven weeks since the hurricane. His days were now totally dedicated to rebuilding the park’s infrastructure, but each day after his shift he drove into town to help friends with their efforts to rebuild and to regain their normal lives.
There were temporary repairs to the road, but it still resembled a war zone, and caused him to bounce and weave through a series of small detours. Progress was slow on this trip out from Port Aransas, but neither he nor Lottie were anxious to reach their destination.
