Hi Friends,

Happy New Year! As I look back at 2015 I’m especially grateful for reading friends. Thanks for your encouragement, positive reviews, and for helping me spread the word about my books!

Here’s what one reviewer said about A Refuge at Highland Hall:  “This is a wonderful conclusion to a great series, a terrific read with admirable characters who have substance and courage. Filled with action and faith, this is a book that makes you want to cheer for the hero and heroine. I definitely recommend The Edwardian Brides Series!”

    I have the other books in your series and I surely look forward to reading them! I have a couple of blog spots to prepare for and write. So my sister was thrilled to have me send your books to her first! Thank goodness she is a quick reader! I also bought Cathy Gohlke’s “Secrets She Kept” per your suggestion….well you suggested the author! The book store didn’t have Terri Gillespie but I can find her online or order hers! I’d love to do a blog spot on your series also!
