A name does not make a person, a person makes a name. Such is the theme of Disrupted Lives, the story of how one adopted child touches and intersects with many lives, but ends up destroying one family name, while building another family's legacy. Darren and Amelia Kane were high school sweethearts torn apart by war. They reunite and discover that they both must put their nightmares behind them to build a life together. Betrayed by her parents, Amelia was earlier forced to give up their child. Fiona Porter and Sterling Lake are thrown together as part of a business proposition. They end up surprising both their families by enriching the Lake empire and family name. The Lakes become synonymous with society, power and money, and their children must carry that torch forward at all cost. When an adopted grandchild is brought into the family, he questions the definition of family. From 1920 to present-day Georgia, this saga of family secrets and old Southern prejudices are explored in the explosive novel Disrupted Lives. Brenda Youngerman lives in Southern California and is writing her next novel, Skewered Halo.I write what I call 'Fiction With a Purpose, ' something that I hope takes the reader on a ride so when they put the book down they say, Was that real? I also want the messages in the book to stay with them. Publisher's website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/titl...
