Jan Sikes: ‘Til Death Do Us Part

For everyone who has followed this Luke Stone series by my multi-award-winning sister, Jan Sikes, you’ll be pleased to know the 4th and final one is out. ‘Til Death Do Us Part is the last chapter and I am really sorry to say goodbye to him and Darlina. Country/western singer, Luke Stone, is really Jan’s husband, Rick Sikes. Although she used fictional names for them both, all the events are true. This last book follows his attempts to return to the stage and to leave a legacy he can be proud of. So many things stand in his way, but he’s really determined. This story needed to be told and I’m glad Jan found the strength to do it. Theirs was a love story for all time. I’m giving away a Kindle copy (winner’s choice) to someone who leaves a comment.

TilDeathDoUsPart 3DVeteran Texas musician, Luke Stone, has cheated death more times then he cares to remember. He’s been everything from a simple farm boy to a rowdy roughneck, a singing star to a convict and finally a husband and father whose goals consisted of building a home and raising a family…which he did.

Now, with a chance for a second music career, he knows the sand in his hourglass is running thin. His anchor in life and true love, Darlina, stands at his side determined to help make the dream a reality. But, his aging body is sabotaging every effort and the only thing that keeps him going is sheer will power and the love he has for Darlina.

When faced with being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Luke draws on every resource to continue to function and contribute to their home and to society.

This is a story of inspiration, endurance and most of all undying love. When Luke and Darlina face life-altering situations that would destroy a lesser man and woman, they draw on each other’s strength and determination to face them.

But will fate allow Luke to sing his last song?

That’s wonderful. I love the sharing of minds.
