In his latest novel “From a Distance” (published by iUniverse), author Vernon Bargainer tells an accessible love story about a young couple struggling to cope with a number of modern-day pressures.

This poignant tale follows 19-year-old Sarah Grace Lock as she speeds away from Dallas trying to escape an abusive husband, racing toward east Texas and the refuge of her loving family. Her past haunts her and she vows never to let romance enter her life again.

Fate has other plans in store for Sarah, however. She catches the eye of a young man named Kevin Lane, and he waits patiently for the opportunity to change her perspective on life and love. She embarks on a journey that leads her to the brink of surrender as fate deals another blow, sending her on a mission no one ever expected.

An excerpt from “From a Distance”:

“Sarah sat quietly in the shade of an old tree, lonely as a lost feather. She had a foreboding sense that she was giving up on herself. She felt that she was losing control and that she was on the brink of doubting that her life had any value to herself or anyone else. As she started to develop that thought further, her aunt Gina came to the back porch and announced that Kevin was there to see her.”
