I Feel Only You (Book 1 of the Shared Senses Series) takes readers back more than a decade to October 1997 to meet Chalice Johnson Crawford, age thirty-eight, and her husband, Jackson Crawford, who is an actor and musician from Australia, and ten years her younger. Although Jackson grew up privileged, he felt alone, lacked trust, and had little faith in God, whereas Chalice was raised as a dedicated Christian. Despite their differences in ethnicity, age, upbringing, and lifestyle choices, they nevertheless find a way to make their lives and marriage work together as Chalice introduces her husband to a more spiritual and fulfilling lifestyle. As an example for others and a testament to the power and love of God, they figure out how to rise above the many challenges they face, that range from self-esteem issues and problems that involve grown stepchildren to more horrific events that threaten both their loyalty to each other and their faith. When readers reach the last page of this inspirational, perceptive, and deeply profound love story, they are left with this message: Relationships require commitment, trust, and unconditional love to prosper; but they require the sharing of senses to maintain the compassion required to endure. Many readers, especially middle-aged women, are sure to relate to some of the concerns, worries, and anxieties the couple has to deal with. However, Cadence Donovan hopes her novel will motivate them to overcome their problems by aiming for something bigger and better in their lives, whether on a professional level with their careers, personally in their relationships with family, friends, or significant others—or with God.
