Previously published in the Amazon bestselling collection, Faithful Women: Legacies of Grace, Ruth’s Garden is now available as a single title exclusively through Amazon.
Ruth Baker has lost her husband, her job and her home. Unsure of what to do with her life next, she responds to her grandmother’s call for help as the ninety-year-old woman waits for a room in a assisted living facility. Though she’s still healing from huge changes in her own life, and torn about leaving her home, she travels to the shores of Long Island to help her grandmother prepare for a big change in her life. Though she has no idea what the future will bring, she hangs on to her faith that God will answer her prayers.
Eli Hamill has been feeling the pull to put down roots. After buying and selling houses in the blink of an eye, his latest project, elderly Eleanora Duncan’s beachside home, has him doing something he’s never done before – live in the house until he has made the sale. From the moment he laid eyes on it, he knew the house was a gem. Although living in one of his sale properties doesn’t follow his usual protocol, it seems like nothing about this deal has. And the last thing he had planned on was getting involved with the seller’s granddaughter, Ruth Baker. Or her adorable six-year-old daughter, Mara.
Can an old house filled with loving memories and a sweet little girl show two lonely people what the future can hold?

Readers are dreamers. What better way to travel the world and live a hundred different lives than through the pages of a book? I have always loved books. Writing just seemed like a natural fit. I credit my sixth grade teacher for igniting my love of words. I have never forgotten how she introduced me to the short story with a simple exercise using index cards – one for setting, one for character, and one for conflict. I can still see those stacks of cards all these years later. With thirty years of writing experience, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are a lot of readers out there that long to be writers. Is that you? If you long to write, my writing workshops might be just what you need to get started. Click on Writing Workshops here or above for more information.
