Rachel Fordham has long been fascinated by all things historical or in the words of her children “old stuff”. Often the historical trivia she discovers is woven into her children's bedtime tales. Despite her love for good stories she didn’t attempt writing a novel until her husband challenged her to do so (and now she’s so glad he did). Since that time she’s often been found typing or researching while her youngest child naps or frantically writing plot twists while she waits in the school pick-up line. In addition to her passion for storytelling she enjoys reading, being outdoors and seeing new places. Rachel lives with her husband and children on an island in Washington state.

So glad you are enjoying it. My second book is stand alone but the characters do pass through Azure Springs and we get to see lots of the characters from The Hope of Azure Springs in it. I have played around with the idea of writing some spin off novellas but haven’t actually done it yet. (less)

Ten Books Full of HOPE

Life today looks very different from how it looked only weeks ago. If youre like me (and my author friends) you are spending more time indoors, less time with people, and on occasion you might feel a little discouraged. Some of us arent working, some are physically sick or sick []

It’s been a while since I read as sweet a story as this book portrays. I am not much for romance novels. I prefer to have a more literary or deeper read, but The Hope of Azure Springs c" Read more of this review »

"The Hope of Azure Springs is a sweet story.

This story is clean, sweet, and offers hope that others can look beyond circumstance and appearance to judge the true character of a person. "

“Looks are a funny thing, very peculiar. Never waste any time disliking the ones you have. The right person will think they are the very definition of beautiful.”

Rachel Fordham answered a question about Yours Truly, Thomas:
Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham
That’s a great question. The main characters are adults but the content is very clean. No language, sex and minimal violence. My middle school age children have read it and enjoyed it but they were not my target audience as I wrote it.

“I'm not sure we ever learn to live without those we love. I think Margaret may be right. The secret is to learn to live with them as nearby as we can keep them. My parents are dead and my sister is in Beckford. I miss them every day. Only now am I learning the right way to remember them.”

“Yes, Em, your freckles are perfect. Looks are a funny thing, very peculiar. Never waste any time disliking the ones you have. The right person will think they are the very definition of beautiful.”
Rachel Fordham, The Hope of Azure Springs

“Does she bring you happiness, make you laugh?" Gideon had asked. When Caleb confessed that she did, his father then asked, "Do you like who you are when you are with her?" Again Caleb answered in the affirmative. He confessed she was not what he had planned, that at first she was just a case to solve.
Then his father said something Caleb couldn't get out of his head. "Our whole lives people try to tell us what beautiful is. As young boys we think we know exactly which women are the loveliest. Then we meet one who doesn't fit the mold and we know we were taught wrong our whole lives." While his pa talked, Caleb envisioned Em's freckled face. "Beauty is something we get to define. We may not see it right away, but when we do, we have trouble remembering the other definition. We wonder how we were ever to misled. All we can see is the one person who defines it for us."
Then his father put a hand on his shoulder and said, "Don't let anyone else decide which kind of beautiful is right for you. You find a girl who brings out the best in you. Who you can see a happy future with. That's your kind of beautiful.”
