It takes place five years after The Planter's Daughter, just after the end of the Civil War. Lots of changes coming to Rose Hill and the Ellis family! I'll share a little more information about the story in the coming months. Look for it to hit stores sometime after the new year!

I'm also working on a new historical novella that will be published in February 2018 in the Mail-Order Brides Collection from Barbour Publishing. Set in the New Mexico Territory in 1866, it's a sweet romance between a former Union Army doctor and the fiancee of a deceased Confederate soldier.(less)

I find great inspiration in reading about the lives of people who have gone before us. I'm especially intrigued by the Civil War and pioneer journeys. Old diaries and letters, and even census records are wonderful resources to fuel my imagination!

While researching The Planter's Daughter, I discovered an amazing book with true narratives of former Texas slaves. Many of the scenes, experiences, and even some of the names I use in The Planter's Daughter are based on true stories. (less)

Such a beautiful story of God's pursuit of Paula Scott's mind, body, and soul. Her story touched me in the deepest places. How thankful we all are that God never gives up on us.

“furrowed, and she leaned forward as though she’d seen him in the darkness. Jerking back behind the plant, he decided it wouldn’t be good to be found on the porch.”
