When a door to love closes, a window opens to new love. This isn't your traditional romance. A book within a book, “Stained Glass Shards” is a journey—a path filled with love, angst, passion, grief, chemistry, doubts, and twists—of separation and discovery of new love. Two adults, who, in their youth, were once in lust, have grown apart. One wants to move on while the other tries to keep a stranglehold on the past. Do you follow your heart or live in the memories? Elyce Fielding is a freelance writer, who has cut ties with her college friend turned lover, actor Griffin Belanger. After one last tryst, Elyce decides she can no longer continue their sexual relationship. For months, Elyce works on her personal growth, losing the excess weight from years of eating her feelings, changing her aesthetic appearance and style, and publishing her first novel—set to become a feature film. While traveling in California with her new lover and agent, Ritter Thorman, Elyce has a chance encounter with Griffin. Upon seeing Elyce for the first time since her transformation, Griffin vows to win her back by any means possible. Elyce must choose between her first love or her current attentive lover.
