On the Corner of Heartache and Love


Journalist Maren Summers must live at “The Corner of Heartache and Love”; she has been devastated by people she trusted. After being jilted at the altar she moves in with her best friend and meets Zane Whitfield, a homeless man who seems to live on the corner across from their apartment.  Maren hopes that Zane’s story is her ticket to a promotion so she will no longer have to report to her ex, Kevin, who has now become her boss. Zane is waiting for one year at the place he first met the love of his life to see if she will return to him.  Through him and others Maren learns about life in a new way so that perhaps she can open her heart to love again.

This truly original story line introduces readers to the beautifully built friendship between Zane and Maren.  Both characters keep “bumping” into each other throughout the crazy circumstances on the corner. Ms. Swinton writes to capture the hearts of her readers in this fun, captivating book. The problems that plague Maren are real and hurtful; yet, her grace and willingness to try to work things out through talking with Zane shows how the friendship may turn to love. Each character written by Ms. Swinton adds a fun and exciting flip or twist to the story. This true classical tale of falling in love again to get over heartache will not disappoint.  It is a story of triumph over the devastating bumps in life.
