Welcome, Dear Ones to my newest series called Leaving Lennhurst.


Three stand-alone historical romances. Love Covers (Elias story) Love Flies (Patience story) and Love Protects (Anna’s story). All three main characters knew each other as children at Lennhurst Asylum and Hospital for Disabled Children. The setting for all three books is just after the civil war and now as adults, how are they fairing in the big unpredictable world away from Lennhurst Asylum?


Book 1-Elias Brown, Love Covers

On the Cover of Love Covers is sweet Lauren Campbell (Thank you lovely Megan Vallotton for lending your beauty to her)

Lauren is Covered in dread as the towns mortician’s daughter.

Elias needs to be Covered (a bad experience haunts him from Lennhusrt)

They leave town in a Covered wagon.

And most of all, Love Covers a Multitude of Sin.  Did I cover that okay?  Much more coverage, romance, intrigue inside the book. 

Love Flies captures fascinating Patience Stephens (Thank You lovely Hannah Hinrichsen for lending your flowing brown hair and love of the water for her cover shoot). This dear young woman has a passion for everything that flies. Winged creatures and a horse named King George keep her flitting in her new life as a landowner. Her  handsome, driven, love interest flies from high to low, wondering if he could ever catch her fluttering heart and his land back.  


Love Protects wraps up with Anna Gibbs story. (Cover coming) She was the strong, hardworking young woman that Elias and Patience count as their reason for surviving their years at Lennhurst. Sure that God hadn’t a reason to protect her from a harsh life, she takes a bold leap and marries an unknown young man that’s struggling to raise his younger siblings. Little does he know; his greatest challenge will be in protecting her.

 Not to give too much away- all three characters are at Lennhurst for very disconcerting reasons. Oh, troubled pasts. Each one of them has a chance to see the power of God bring change, wholeness, and future to their lives.  Each one has to choose when to believe and have faith and when to quit and let go. (can you relate?) But that thread of love, love of God, love of a man or woman, love of family, friends; how it has the power to lead us, change us, convert us, and save us.

 “And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.”  Math 4:24 KJV

 Please get cozy and enjoy an Escape to an Era Where True Love Prevails.
