About the Author:

Leonora Pruner was born in Dubuque, Iowa, but has lived most of her life in California. Writing has been an important activity since junior high. She graduated from Westmont College in 1953 and earned an MBA from Pepperdine University in 1981. Fascination with an eighteenth-century English character led to five years of extensive research, which resulted in the 1981 and 1987 publication of two period novels. That time period remains of great interest to the author, and she continues to use eighteenth-century England as a setting for her work.

Leonora married in 1953, and her family has expanded from two children to thirteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She lived in the Republic of Maldives from 1987 to 1997, where she collected folklore and taught economics and computer science. While there she wrote the first drafts of Close To His Heart

.

Review:

Forced by her parents to give up the man she loves. Sold into marriage to a man she’s never met. Anne Crofton is certain God has forsaken her. Why else would He allow her to spend eternity in a dreadful place like the Aerie?

Thrust into the middle of a dangerous battle, she attempts to forget the man she loved and embrace her role as Andrew’s wife. Traitors lurk around the corners. Her very life is in the hands of her new husband and the servants of the Aerie. As tensions rise, Anne soon discovers she will need all of God’s strength to help her.

A moving story of intrigue, love, and faith awaits the reader in Leonora Pruner’s latest novel. I highly recommend In the Aerie of the Wolf.
Cheryl C. Malandrinos, The Book Connection

Wow! When I selected this book I had no idea what to expect, the cover of the book put me off a bit, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be medieval fantasy or what. I had never heard of the author, but the blurb about the book caught my eye and I requested it. I am so happy I did!!! Having never heard of the author or the publisher, it was risky, but well worth it.

Set in the 18th century, we are introduced to the beautiful younger daughter of a poor nobleman, who really hasn’t much hope to marry her off too well. Imagine his shock and surprise when a servant of a well to do Lord comes offering for her hand. With a very large financial dowry gift to sweeten the pot, Anne Crofton nearly feels like she has been sold off for marriage. Even more dismaying is the fact that her groom insists she be brought to his estate for the wedding, is this a hoax? Finding out her new groom is very elusive worries Anne even more. The sudden death of the vicar of the Aerie is adding more worry to her already wavering thoughts. Finding herself in the midst of a family feud, and in danger also, makes Anne sure she should have never come here. Her only saving grace and hold to reality is her nightly visits in the dark with her groom to be.

A charming story of love, redemption, grace and relationship, you will definitely want to make the time to read this book. It is unlike any historical novel I have ever read, it kept my interest from beginning to end. In fact I was anxious to return to my reading after attending midweek service, anxious to see where the story would continue on to. A great book! 4 stars.
