For anyone who has faced the loss of a loved one, Tablecloth Scribbles takes readers from the depths of despair to the revels of renewed faith.
Death. It's the last thing on the minds of college students Lauren Vanderhill and Kristine Longheart as they sip coffee in their favorite cafe and scribble their life's goals on the white paper tablecloth. The young friends feel invincible and empowered. Until later that night...Lauren suffers a sudden heart attack and dies in her sleep, leaving Kristine to struggle with her devastating loss. Emotionally numb, she develops symptoms that mimic her best friend's undiagnosed heart condition. Fearing she will also die as soon as she closes her eyes, Kristine refuses to sleep. Her marathon battle to stay awake lands her in the hospital. While undergoing treatment, she comes to realize she has two choices: either face her grief and fear of death or languish forever in self-pity. Choosing to live for the moment, Kristine leaves behind everything that is familiar and safe and, alone, embarks on a venture that takes her from a tarpon-fishing vessel off the coast of Florida to a bullfight in Spain. The strangers she meets entangle her in their secrets. What they teach her inspires her to return to the cafe to rewrite her tablecloth scribbles. With new insights into life, death and things worth doing, she finally grasps that hidden within her heart of hearts lies her true fate.
