Revealed by You

By: Jo-Anna Walker

Book 2 in the Torn Trilogy


I’m dedicating the second part of this trilogy to someone that I miss dearly. I know that she would be so proud of Brett for his strength and growth. Her love for my characters have kept me going even though she’s no longer with us.

Brenda Smith Travis, you will always be in my heart and thoughts and this book is dedicated to you. Always and forever. You inspire me. You live on in my words that flow from my fingertips.

Miss you Mama Hen. xx

Love hard. Love deep.


First off, I would like to thank You. When I had no faith, You nudged me. While I was doubting myself, You whispered that I could do better. I could be better. At times when I felt like giving up, you pushed someone or something in my path to help me. Guided me along with a helping hand.

I may not write what everyone approves of but I don’t hide who I am. As soon as the first words flowed from my fingertips, I knew it was my calling. I live to tell a story.

As this story grows, the spirituality and love strengthens. You need to fall before you can be picked up.

Without my husband, none of this would be possible. He’s my rock. My one. My only.

Thank you to my family and friends for constantly supporting me in my journey of writing. I wouldn’t be where I am without each and every one of you.

My PA. Angie Stanton-Johnson. My FS (inside joke). Your faith in me and my writing is astounding and although I know your heart belongs to Garrith, thank you for allowing a little bit of Brett in there as well. ;)

To my book club, you all are amazing and special to me. I’m so thankful to have gotten to know you throughout the years.

Chrissy (C.A. Szarek), thank you for the fantastic blurbs and for the constant support, bestie. I love you!

My team of awesomeness:

My girls. My Jems. You know who you are and your constant support is appreciated and I have no words to describe how much you mean to me.

My beta readers: I can’t thank you girls enough for your critique, encouragement, your constant support. Thank you for helping me make Brett’s second book much better than the first.

Brenda Wright, my very patient editor. Thank you for everything!! Your patience is awe-inspiring and I will never be able to repay you for all that you do and more.

To all the blogs out there. There are just too many to name but I love each and every one of you. You all have helped me in your own way and for that, I thank you.

Angie Stanton-Johnson, Melinda Huff Bones, Brenda Wright, Jennifer Duncan Robbins with Twinsie Talk Book Reviews. You girls are my sisters and I couldn’t do this or the pimpage without you. Thank you for everything for always hosting my tours and for just being you.

Once Upon a Time Covers: Thank you again for the beautiful and sexy cover!

And last but surely not least, my readers. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support from all of you. You’re my rock, my light, my constant encouragement to keep going and trudging on. Thank you to everyone for your support and never ending encouragement. Words cannot describe how much you all mean to me.

Revealed by You Playlist

Here is a list of songs that reminded me of Brett and Evvie, either together or apart. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Even if you don’t like the music, the words are what captured me and brought me into their world. Now as I listen to them, I think how far Brett and Evvie have become but still have so much to go through before they will finally be happy.

A deep and powerful love is never quiet, never dormant but loud and fierce. ~ Jo-Anna Walker

People may not believe in love at first sight. The first pull. The first thing that tugs at your heart, leading you to that person. Hell, I definitely didn’t. Not until I met him. My best friend. My lover. Four weeks, three days and eight hours had passed since I’ve seen Brett MacLean.
