Hello Christy,
I have just started writing my newest historical series. In fact, I am only a few pages into the first manuscript. At this point, we do not even have a name for the series yet! However, I can give you a few hints... The books are set in the Blackduck area of Minnesota in the early 1900's and features a new family of Norwegian immigrants. Readers familiar with Blessing may recognize the family as descendants of Ingeborg's childhood friend, Gunlaug, but this is not a Blessing series. I suppose you could say that it runs parallel to Blessing books but is in fact a new series with new characters set in a new area. Blessings, Lauraine(less)
