About The Book:
Nothing could have prepared Darlina Flowers for the reckless Texas rogue musician, Luke Stone, to come stampeding into her life like a team of wild horses. Their love ignited into an ever burning flame, enduring a cruel twist of fate and injustice.
A compelling true story based on the lives of Rick and Jan Sikes.
A passionate love story set in the rowdy raucous honky-tonks of Texas in 1970.
Author Jan Sikes brings readers a poignant story, filled with both romance and heartache, with her debut novel, "Flowers And Stone."
Through a fictional accounting, Jan brings the story of her life with Texas musician Rick Sikes to life, and it is a fascinating story of music, love, a man gone wrong, and a woman who loved him enough to stand by his side, and then brave enough to share their story.
Jan shows a mastery for descriptive storytelling as she captures the atmosphere of the Texas music scene of the 1970s, complete with the thick, smoky air of the honky-tonks and the wail of the electric guitars. Her characters are intriguing and full-bodied, and the story is quick-paced. I look forward to more intriguing stories from Jan as she intends to continue the story into a series.
