I’m excited to announce that the third book in my Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series will release November 4. The book is called A Dream of Home and I’m thrilled to share more about it.
Moving to Pennsylvania wasn’t in Madeleine’s original plans. She should still be in California and should have married her pilot fiancé a year ago-but death has a way of changing everything. Now the former Air Force flight nurse is living alone in Paradise, Pennsylvania, and working as a maid at the Lancaster Grand Hotel. She isn’t exactly a widow . . . but she sure feels like one.
Saul Beiler isn’t exactly a widower . . . but his wife is long gone. His eleven-year-old daughter, Emma, doesn’t know that her mother fled the Amish community-and married another man-but she does know that her dat is lonely, and that a pretty young maedel just moved in next door. Madeline’s numb heart begins to thaw as she spends more time with the innocent and ever optimistic Emma. The stronger her friendship grows with the young girl, the more intrigued Madeline grows about the humble, strong, man raising her on his own.
But even as a strange attraction pulls Saul and Madeleine across a stark cultural divide, they-and everybody else-have to wonder: What could they possibly have in common besides heartache? Will love allow Madeleine to finally find the home she’s been dreaming of all along?
The Making of A Dream of Home
A Dream of Home was inspired while I was writing A Mother’s Secret. I wanted to give Saul his own book after he had his heart broken. Since Madeleine is a former member of the Air Force, this book is dedicated to all of the brave and dedicated women serving in the military.
I really enjoyed researching this book since I had the opportunity to find out more about Air Force nurses. I spent time with a former flight nurse who shared her experiences both in the United States and aboard. She shared stories about serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, giving me a greater respect for our members of the military. I’m thankful for all of the members of the military who risk their lives every day for us.
