Hi Friends,

I’m just passing the halfway mark in writing Finding Her Way Home. This English historical novel follows the story of the four  McAllister siblings when the younger three become British home children and are taken away to Canada without their mother’s knowledge or permission. The oldest sister sets off to find them and reunite the family, but she can’t do it alone. A young lawyer who is investigating Child emigration for the British government teams up with the oldest sister to help her search for her siblings. I hope the adventure, romance, and inspiration will make this an enjoyable story for you. The research has been fascinating for me. Here’s a look at some of my research books.
