Paulie Goodwin has pushed his limits in life. As a photojournalist, he goes wherever the wind blows, and has been around the world and back again, seeing its many faces and places through the lens of his camera. When his most recent assignment as a photojournalist lands him in Afghanistan on an army base with the American soldier, his life is turned upside down. A young serviceman gives his life to save Paulie’s, sending the photographer reeling. He’ll come back home to his family to heal from a severe injury in the small town of Cordial Creek. He’s gone against the grain all of his life, choosing the road less traveled, but this time the mountain of guilt may be too hard to climb. Anna Peters has lived in Cordial Creek for all of her life. A teacher of fifteen years, she’s always been content with her predictable routine, but lately has felt a need for something new in her life, some kind of spark. Change will literally run smack dab into her when she sweeps Paulie Goodwin off his feet at the airport. Once high school sweethearts, they’ve remained friends throughout the years, catching up whenever he’s breezed in to town. This time, he’s here to stay and ready to fall to pieces. Can Anna put Paulie back together again or will the cost of his last assignment be too high of a price to pay?

About the Author:

I’ve had a love affair with the written word since I was a child. My first grade teacher told my mother I wouldn’t amount to anything, resulting in many sessions of Dick and Jane at bedtime. I still remember the victory of reading Green Eggs and Ham on my own. From then on, I was hooked, a veritable bookworm. I dabbled in stories for years, writing continuations of television programs with my best friend and filling notebooks with flights of fancy. Fast forward to college and I majored in elementary education with a concentration in my true love, English. I continued with Master’s degrees in Reading and Early Childhood. I’ve dedicated over twenty years of my life to teaching. It is one of the most rewarding, hardest jobs anyone could do. In March of 2010, Adirondack Sundown hit, a 100,000 word suspense thriller. I was writing at every spare minute, pulling over to the side of the road, or sitting down in a grocery aisle to jot notes. The flood of writing continued and the tap hasn’t turned off since. The Edge of Forgiveness on Blue Mountain was released in the summer of 2016 and the next installment will come out in the future. Belle Bridge Books published All the Little Things in the Cordial Creek Romances. I’ve since published Lightning Can Strike Twice, Aging Gracefully, and Sunny Side Up. More is on the way! My latest adventure has been Whispers of Liberty, a jaunt through time that begins in my town, historic Johnstown NY, and carries my main character back to the Revolutionary war. Charlotte Ross is a history buff, having grown up with two history teachers for parents. She is surrounded by landmarks from colonial days and a home that is filled with artifacts. One night, on the anniversary of the Battle of Johnstown, she is led into the Colonial Cemetery by a man dressed in the uniform of a Revolutionary militia man. She touches a grave stone and is sucked back in time. Once there, she’ll meet her ancestor and a soldier, Benjamin Willson. Charlotte will fall hard for her militia man. Will she be able to change the tides of war? I was led to this novel after watching “The Sons of Liberty” on the history channel, plus I love Outlander. The ideas for the story rolled out like a movie in my mind, carrying me on a great adventure as I learned a wealth of facts about my town. The novel merges past and present while giving readers a good dose of patriotic spirit. It also offers a strong heroine as the leading lady.
