Read full description of the books:Amidst unbearable injustice, can she find the will to love and forgive?
Sarah Matthews has lost everything she holds dear, and fears further tragedy is to come if she remains at her childhood home near Bristol, England. Will her reckless decision to flee in the dead of night end up destroying any shred of hope she has left, and put her in even greater danger?
Maryland planter, John Clark, has no need for a female servant. Yet when he sees a disheveled young woman, trying so hard to be brave, there is no denying his desire to help her. Buying Sarah's indenture is one thing. Impulsively forcing her into marriage the same day is quite another...
Read information about the authorI was raised on a farm in northern Alberta, Canada. Some of my fondest memories are of time spent with my parents and siblings hauling hay, working with the cattle, or just goofing around. We would often gather around the piano and sing together, and sometimes neighbors and friends would join us in this, and we would sing into the wee hours together. We didn't have running water or indoor plumbing, and, for quite a while, we also did not have electricity, but it did not matter a whit to any of us. Those are not the kinds of things that really matter. In the evenings sometimes we gathered around the kitchen table and had contests of who could do math questions in our head and get the answer the quickest. Our accompaniment was the whir of the gas lantern. Such great memories! Sometimes, even now, I light a kerosene lamp and turn the other lights off, just for the comforting atmosphere of it. We spent a lot of quality time together, and I think that's one of the reason's we're such a close-knit family.
My love of traveling started very early on. Most of our relatives lived in the States and so we would take a road trip to visit them in the summertime whenever we could. If the 5-day forecast called for rain so that we couldn't be out haying, Dad would announce that we were to pack up and that we would be heading out the next morning. I always loved those trips. That probably had a lot to do with my eventually moving to the US. I spent almost 5 years down in southern Nevada in a wonderful, irrigating farming valley, and that is where I met my dear husband. We eventually ended up back in Canada, and now live with our three children near my childhood farm in Alberta.
As for how I became an author, I guess it started with writing blurbs about my ancestors. I'm big into genealogy, you see. It wasn't long before I ventured past the names and dates, and started trying and determine what their lives might have been like. I also read a lot of inspirational romance novels. One night, after finishing such a book, I had this strong impression that I needed to get out of bed and start writing a tale of my own. I did so, and that book (A Willing Heart) is now complete, and the next in the series is done as well except for some editing. I have grown to love the characters and it amazes me to think they would not exist, for me or anyone else, if I hadn't started typing that night. It has been a beautiful journey so far.
