Tears of Sand


Taking place on the Northwest coast of Florida, Tears of Sand is a twisting and turning story of love and hope with a twist of Southern humor thrown in.

Estranged from her father and left with the task of taking care of her alcoholic, sex-addicted mother, Plata Hartman has a conflicted and confusing life, robbing her of a normal childhood and leaving her unsure of where she fits in.

Finally finding love, Plata marries Jeremy. Her happiness is short-lived. A heart-wrenching tragedy strikes, showing her that the course of one's life can change in a split second - as fast as a bolt of lightning. In her search to come to terms with this devastating event, life-altering secrets unfold, and Plata finds herself returning to her past on a dangerous, spine-chilling journey to rescue, and perhaps kidnap, a child.

Sandra Bass Joines

Sandra grew up and lived along the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida until the mid-eighties when she moved with her husband and three children to Colorado.

Being born and reared in a small Southern town where humor and storytelling was a part of everyday life has provided her endless stories and a bag bulging with fodder for remarkable yet realistic characters.

Although Sandra loves the majestic Rocky Mountains and enjoys living in the foothills west of Denver, salt water flows through her veins and the Gulf of Mexico beckons her to return to the Gulf Coast of Florida often. Perhaps this is the reason The Plata Hartman novels are set along the beautiful, compelling Forgotten Coast of Florida.
