The Birthday Gift by Cassandra Barnes

Book title: The Birthday Gift

Genre: Romance
Time Period: Contemporary

Deeply wounded by their pasts, Rose and Hoyt learn to give love, first to a parentless child, then after a wildfire threatens their lives, to each other.

But the Fates aren’t done with them yet.

Circumstances force them apart, challenging each to sacrifice their dearest possession and risk everything to follow their hearts. It’s up to the child they adore to show them the path to love, a tall order for someone less than a year old.


About the author:

Cassandra Barnes

Writing is a creative outlet for me, and I find inspiration everywhere. Although words sometimes flow for me, I usually have to rewrite everything several times before it all comes together to my satisfaction. I alternate between handwritten pages and filling a blank PC screen. My perfectionist ways frequently lead to writer’s block! When that happens, all I can do is take a break. Once the pressure is off, the words I need eventually appear.

I was a Certified Public Accountant in my first career. As a volunteer, I've been a literacy tutor, mentored other writers, and raised money for animal welfare. Other than books, a few of my favorite things are animals, flowers, food, music, metaphysics, and science.

I grew up in a rural Washington town in the fifties. In the 70s, I lived a year in Teheran, and later visited Rome, Athens, Alexandria, and Beijing. Since then I’ve lived on the Oregon coast, in the Arizona deserts, and now make my home on a mountain top in California. I’ve been happy and sad, employed and unemployed, healthy and unwell, married and unmarried, creative and dull. Best of all, I have loved and been loved by good guys and bad boys, and that’s what keeps my world turning.
