Back Cover - This Fine Life

Yesterday I finished increasing the word count of my novel and breathed a sigh as I clicked the "Send" button emailing it to my agent. Now the wait begins, and I covet your prayers. The next step is up to the Lord, and I praise God I have an agent who is led by Him.

While I wait, I am reminded of Psalm 31:14-15a: "But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, 'You are my God.' My times are in your hand ..." What a blessing to know the Lord is in control.

Today, I am delighted to post the back cover copy from a fantastic novel, This Fine Life, published by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, and written by Eva Marie Everson, a fellow Floridian, whose works I have followed for several years:

"It is the summer of 1959 and Mariette Puttnam has just graduated from boarding school. When she returns to her privileged life at home, she isn't sure where life will take her. More schooling? A job? Marriage? Nothing feels right. How could she know that the answer is waiting for her within the narrow stairwell of her father's apparel factory, exactly between the third and fourth floors?

In this unique and tender story of an unlikely romance, popular author Eva Marie Everson takes readers on a journey through the heart of a young woman bound for the unknown. Readers will experience the joys of new love, the perseverance of true friendship, and the gift of forgiveness that comes from a truly fine life."

This heartwarming read will make a great addition to your summer list. You don't want to miss it.
