Ready for some exciting news?
I’m starting a new series – historical series – set in Pendleton, Oregon in the early 1900s.
Entitled Pendleton Petticoats, each book will feature a … wait for it… petticoat!
Seriously, though, the series will be about strong women. Some may even be a little forward thinking for their time. They are all going to be determined and quite likely a little stubborn! The name of the book will be the name of our heroine in each story.
The first book in the series is Aundy, set in the year 1899.
Here’s a little blurb about the book:
Desperate to better her situation, Aundy Thorsen agrees to leave behind her life in Chicago to fulfill a farmer’s request for a mail-order bride in Pendleton, Oregon. When a tragic accident leaves her a widow soon after becoming a wife, Aundy takes on the challenge of learning how to manage a farm, even if it means her stubborn determination to succeed upsets a few of the neighbors.
Born and raised on the family ranch, Garrett Nash loves life in the bustling community of Pendleton in 1899. When his neighbor passes away and leaves behind a plucky widow, Garrett takes on the role of her protector and guardian. His admiration for her tenacious spirit soon turns to something more. Can he convince the strong-willed Aundy to give love another try?
I’m more than half-way through writing the first draft so stay tuned for more details! My plan is for the book to be available in June.
