Six Sentence Sunday

Six more sentences from ‘Changing the Future’. For those who have been following my previous excerpts, I’m jumping ahead now to three chapters before the end.
After a blistering fight which ended all Lisa and Paul’s efforts at reconciliation, Paul has gone to Iceland. Lisa is in her room at college one morning when Ralph Glover calls her.
“Get yourself to a TV,” Ralph said.
“Mount Lakuda has erupted, it’s breaking news, and Paul’s over there”
“Yes, I know, he went to Iceland last
“Lisa, they’ve lost contact with the team at the observation post on Lakuda. I’m trying to find out just where Paul is.”
Blurb: Lisa Marshall is stunned when celebrated volcanologist Paul Hamilton comes back into her life at the college where she now teaches. Despite their acrimonious break-up several years earlier, they soon realise the magnetic attraction between them is stronger than ever. However, the past is still part of the present, not least when Paul discovers Lisa has a young son. They can’t change that past, but will it take a volcanic eruption to help them change the future?
'Changing the Future' is available at $3.99 on Amazon
