Waiting Hearts - Kindle Ebook By Beth Ann Stifflemire


Waiting Hearts is a story of unexpected, awe inspiring, spell-binding love surrounded by tragic elements both seen and unforeseen that forever change lives even to the point of death.  Yet in life or death love seems to survive in ways we could never predict, even when tradedy ensues.

Living with a rare heart condition, Kayla Parker a twenty-six year old elementary school teacher chooses to keep things simple, never yearning for love or the drama that inevitably comes with it, especially after experiencing the pain of losing her father to a similar condition. Kayla plays it safe, avoiding the nightlife and dating scene that surrounds her in the budding music city of Austin, Texas.

​That is until the charismatic easy on the eyes musician Gabe Sanderson falls into her life at a local coffee house and all of her rules on love fly out the window.  Gabe opens her eyes and heart to a love Kayla never imagined when he accepts all of her, even her condition, but when the music world Gabe’s a part of comes knocking with big opportunities she second guesses herself and her love.  Life changing decisions are made that result in a combination of tragic and bittersweet aftershocks.  Can their love surpass circumstance?  Can her heart endure?

Fun Tidbit: Elements of Austin and it's surrounding areas such as Lady Bird Lake, The Salt Lick BBQ and Round Rock Donuts were highlighted in the novel, a little touch of the authors upbringing she desired to share with the world when creating the love story of Kayla and Gabe.
