Rita Gerlach lives with her husband and two sons in a historical town nestled along the Catoctin Mountains, amid Civil War battlefields and Revolutionary War outposts in central Maryland.

"Inspirational romantic fiction is one way people can escape the cares of life and be transported back to a time of raw courage and ideal love," she says. "The goal of my writing is to give readers a respite, and inspire them to live fully and gratefully."

I'm happy to announce the release of my newest novel 'After the Rain', an Edwardian romance set in 1908-09 America. It's a hefty book, with lots of interesting characters, and a hero and heroine that will win your heart over.

Reviewers are loving it.

Available on Amazon in ebook and paperback.
