Between Dusk & Dawn

Do life, and relationships, end with death? The power of love binds together two souls in an afterlife free of past mistakes and tragedies.


Tai Le Grice’s ‘Between Dusk & Dawn’ is a powerful follow-up to her highly-acclaimed novel ‘Smoke and Water.’ Two tortured souls come together in the most unexpected of circumstances in this romantic tale which has dark overtones of the supernatural. It will take you through a gamut of emotions and leave you questioning your own relationships yet not without placing a true sense of hope for the future in your heart.


Independent and enigmatic Storm is tormented by a recurring dream which inevitably leaves him with a sense of loss that tears his very heart from his body and his soul along with it. Angry and frustrated, running from both his past and his true self, he trusts nobody and love is a word he refuses to permit into his vocabulary, never mind his thoughts. For Indy, broken and lost, escaping a shattered childhood and a mother who is herself lost in addiction, the same images appear repeatedly in his art, leaving him aching with a loss he doesn’t understand. Sensitive and intuitive, knowing he is different from those around him, he struggles to fit in and permit himself to be who he truly is. ‘Between Dusk & Dawn’ by Tai Le Grice, the troubled pair are united in the most unexpected way.


Synopsis of ‘Between Dusk & Dawn’ by Tai Le Grice:

I even still don’t know

Who you are

But I love you.


“My love is infinite. It will always remain and wherever you go, wherever he sends you… I will find you.”


A life lived and a love lost. Waiting through lifetimes to be re-united and driven to put right the mistakes of the past or be trapped forever in regret.

In the author’s words:


“Do life, and relationships, end with death? Is it possible that a love can be so profound and run so deep that it surpasses death and can bring us back together in another life, one in which the mistakes of the past can be repaired? Can the Red Threads of Fate tie us together, not only in this lifetime, but also in the next? Can love permit us to let go of what we think we know of ourselves to accept who we truly are? These are the questions both Storm and Indy are faced with in my book ‘Between Dusk & Dawn.’


“Their story ties together elements of Red Thread mythology, overcoming personal trauma and hardships, and hints of fantasy and the supernatural. Nothing is ever quite what it appears and love, friendship, and loyalty can come from the most unexpected places.”


Praise for Tai Le Grice’s previous novel ‘Smoke and Water’:


‘An unexpected story that made my heart hurt.’


‘It’s more than a love story. It’s a story about overcoming adversity.’


‘An enjoyable and romantic read with lots to learn from the characters involved.’


About the author:

For me, writing has always been not only about facing my own demons, but about helping others face and overcome their own. If I don’t write, I’m not only letting myself down, but I’m letting down those who have faith and trust in me, those who will never move if I don’t write. I don’t have to be a genius. I simply have to write.


To me, the stories and characters I write are real, based in real experiences, real people, real places, even if modified and blended into completely fictional accounts. I’ve experienced heartache, betrayal, pain, loss, humiliation.. but also incredible soaring heights of success and joy.


My childhood was tumultuous, a roller-coaster of broken memories, eventually resulting in both chronic PTSD and DID. Despite these setbacks, I’ve undertaken many jobs and professions.


I have little to no official qualifications but… I’ve lived. And I write what I have lived.


As of today, I live in my little piece of paradise on the west coast of New Zealand with five dogs, five cats, two mini-ponies, my current foster-daughter, my foster-brother, and, at any one time, around fifty guinea-pigs. Life is good.
