“As the Tide Comes In” Releasing August 21!

As the Tide Comes In releases August 21, 2018. It’s my first full-length non-Amish novel!

When an unthinkable loss sends Tara Abbott’s life spiraling out of control, she journeys from North Carolina to Georgia’s St. Simons Island. Although confused and scared, she hopes to find answers about her past – her life before the years of foster care and raising her two half-brothers as a young adult. Will she find steady ground on the island, surrounded by an eccentric-but-kindhearted group of older women called the Glynn Girls and a determined firefighter? Or will the truth splinter what’s left of her identity into pieces?

    Helpful Tips for First-Time Commenters:

    The third field in the comment form asks, “Got a website?” Please feel free to leave that field blank. (If WordPress would let me, I would remove that question!)

    If you don’t see your comment appear right away, it probably went to “moderation,” which is a holding place where WordPress keeps some of the comments until I approve them. Be assured, I will approve it as soon as I can.

    The cover to the book is just beautiful I moved away from the west coast and now live in Iowa and so miss the ocean and piers. The sound of the waves was so stress releasing and so beautiful.
