Gio twisted his shoulders, jerking himself upright, and hooked a foot around the door frame. One last try. There had to be a way out. “Sergeant,” he shouted. “Stay strong. Don’t give up.”

Don’t give up. God, help me. God. He would answer. Somewhere there was a purpose in this. But his doubts rose higher each time Sergeant screamed his name.

Giovanni Cavatelli simply wants to survive this one hour balloon flight. Never mind the girl he’s flying is antagonistic, overbearing, and stubborn. Never mind it’s her birthday. So they don’t get along. He can survive one hour.

But when bad weather sends them crashing into the rural mountainside, one hour turns into three days and a dangerous game with a group of anti-government activists out to destroy them both.

Will her courage and skills be enough to save them? Or will something as simple as true love prove far stronger?

Ribbon of Years: A Novel

by Robin Lee Hatcher

In 1936, 15-year-old Miriam Gresham of River Bluff, Idaho, wanted nothing more than to be a famous actress, just like Greta Garbo. But God had other things in mind. The remarkable story of her life of faith comes to light at an estate sale â?¦ and to restless Julianna Crosby, it’s a priceless find!

“[Hatcher] ambitiously alternates between the past seven decades and the current one to show how the influence of a life of faith can shape the destiny of others. Juliana is 44, and wishing she could start over with a clean slate. When, at an estate sale, she happens across a box of old trinkets marked ‘My Life,’ she hears firsthand the saga of Miriam, the owner of the box, from those who loved her best â?¦ Hatcher progresses through Miriam’s escapades as a teenager to her eventual death, interrupting her life story with the present-day reflections of Juliana, who comes to grips with her need for God. The writing is smooth, there’s some nice historical detail and Hatcher manages the time switches with aplomb.”
â?? Publishers Weekly (2001)

“Bring out the tissues, folks. This is a story from the author’s heart, no doubt, and her best so far. No contrived plot lines or stereotypical characters here. If this is the type of book to expect in the future from Ms. Hatcher, I can’t wait for the next one.”
â?? Romantic Times Magazine, 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick (2001)
