Featuring Your Next Weekend Read!
From the Author
Veteran Texas musician, Luke Stone, has cheated death more times than he cares to remember. He’s been everything from a simple farm boy to a rowdy roughneck, a singing star to a convict and finally a husband and father whose goals consisted of building a home and raising a family… which he did.
Now, with a chance for a second music career, he knows the sand in his hourglass is running thin. His anchor in life and true love, Darlina, stands at his side, determined to help make the dream a reality. But, his aging body is sabotaging every effort and the only thing that keeps him going is sheer willpower and the love he has for Darlina.
When faced with being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Luke draws on every resource to continue to function and contribute to their home and to society.
This is a story of inspiration, endurance, and most of all, undying love. When Luke and Darlina face life-altering situations that would destroy a lesser man and woman, they draw on each other’s strength and determination to face them.
Will fate allow Luke to sing his last song?
I don’t know about you, but I prefer a true love story to a fictional one. That is exactly what you will find with Flowers & Stone, The Convict & the Rose, Home At Last, and now the last book, ‘Till Death Do Us Part, by author Jan Sikes. I reviewed the first three books HERE.
Luke and Darlina’s (Rick & Jan’s) love story continues by chronicling the last decade of their life together and, just from the title, you know where the story is headed. Luke’s health continues to fail, but being the man he is, he lets nothing stand in his way. He’s determined to leave a rich legacy of country music for Darlina and his two girls. He finds himself inspired to write music and to once again perform, but this time, he brings Darlina along with him. The two work together, singing and writing the music they both love.
I realized how many hardships the two endured to be together, and through thick and thin, they remained soul mates. Their love was the glue that held them together. My biggest takeaway was how Luke grabbed hold of each day as a new beginning. As a couple, they dreamed big and followed those dreams by remaining true to themselves. This is a truly inspirational love story. Truth be told, I cried my eyes out at the end. It’s an emotional read!
Are you looking for a series that leaves you breathless? Look no further, because Rick & Jan Sikes’ story is unforgettable. I loved this series and I know you will love it too!

I’ve been an avid reader all my life. I can still remember the excitement that surged through me the first time I realized I could decipher words. Many summers, I won the highest award possible from the Hobbs, NM Public Library for reading the most books.There’s nothing I love more than losing myself in a story. Oddly enough, I never had any ambition to be a writer. But I wound up in mid-life with a story that begged to be told. Not just any story, but a true story that rivaled any fiction creation. Through fictitious characters, the tale came to life in an intricately woven tale that encompasses four books. Not satisfied to stop with the books, I released music CDs of original music to match the time period of each story segment.In conclusion, to bring the story full circle, I published a book of poetry and art. I was done. Wrong! The story ideas keep coming, and I don’t intend to turn off the creative fountain. I am a member of the Author’s Marketing Guild, The Writer’s League of Texas, Romance Writers of America, and the Paranormal Writer’s Guild. I am an avid fan of Texas music and a grandmother of five beautiful souls. I reside in North Texas.
