My Book Beginning:
In Her Eyes by Wesley Banks
June 12, 2015
The first time he saw her was on a day just like today.
The sky was blue and cloudless, like the color of the ocean from a plane.
My Thoughts: This makes me think of a perfect summer or spring day – I’ve actually seen the ocean from a plane and it’s a really great experience and vision.

My 56 (Also from In Her Eyes by Wesley Banks ):
“Joe Clemmons?” Casey said quickly. Her tone changed, “Emma, you know you’re too young to be kissing boys, right?”
“It was just a game.”
My Thoughts: Emma is Casey’s five year old daughter and this is the first time Casey has introduced Ben to her. It’s also when she finds out that her little girl has given or received her first “kiss”…..lol…I can just see this scene.

About In Her Eyes by Wesley Banks
When Ben Wilder is given a second chance he focuses on the one thing he's always been good at: running. After walking on to the University of Florida Track and Field team he begins to quickly move up the national rankings, paving a path towards the NCAA Championships. Everything is going the way he planned, until the day he bumps into Casey Taylor.
New to Gainesville, and focused on her first year out of medical school, Casey is initially hesitant to let Ben into her life. The truth is she's worried about letting a guy near the one thing she loves most: her daughter, Emma. After one fun and fateful night Casey can no longer bury her feelings behind these excuses, and takes a chance on a guy she is slowly falling for.
Casey's relationship with Ben starts to gradually build into a love that she has never felt before. But more importantly, Emma has taken a particular liking to Ben. As they all spend more time together Ben is forced to confront painful memories when he starts to notice something hauntingly familiar about Emma.
A local journalist soon uncovers the secret of Ben's past as their lives begin to converge on a single promise that Ben Wilder has long since made: to never give up...no matter what.
