About the Book

As Lili Wentworth is living a dancer’s dream, an unexpected twist forces her to examine her life and acknowledge the shocking truth of her heritage. With visions of her future left in the hands of her father’s trusted friends, he paves the way for her to discover the precious secrets that will change her life forever.

Loyal friendships form an unbreakable bond as Lili struggles to come to terms with the meaning of life. During her darkest days, one of those loyal friends finds Lili difficult to resist as he falls in love with the only part of her that he can relate to.

Welcome to the brownstone located on the Upper West Side, the home of Lili Wentworth and her older brother, Grayson. Follow Lili to London, Juilliard, and the hottest clubs in New York City. But no matter where Lili goes, every turn she makes forces her to reflect on the responsibilities of love, the nature of loss, and the spiritual dimension of life.

The clock is ticking as everyone tries to save Lili from her worst enemy—herself.

About the Author

Have you ever stood in a place that should be familiar and yet felt lost? You’ve walked the same street for years, seen the same people, done the same things, but my impassiveness was lost in the faint idea that I didn’t belong here. Everything that made sense to me simply didn’t anymore. I had to believe there was more. Creating The Brownstone gave me a playground in which to explore while on the road to discovery and, ultimately, recovery.
