Synopsis:

Remarkable Women. Unforgettable Love Stories.

In 1905, Hope Birdwell is a spirited young woman of strong will and uncompromising dreams. Exchanging her routine life as the domestic servant of a wealthy family for the demanding self-reliance of a Wyoming homesteader is the first step in her plan for success. Hope is finally on her way to the home and the future she has always desired, and she will not allow any distractions into her life-or her heart. She doesn't realize that her dream of a bright and independent future will be threatened by secrets from her past, a past darkened by the shadows of prostitution and violence. When she is forced to confront her fears and defend the place and the people she has grown to love, Hope will discover the danger of deception-and the liberating power of truth.

Waiting for Hope continues the story of the Davis family, introduced in the acclaimed Lily's Sister, the first book of Hasley's Laramie Series. You will find Lily's Sister at Amazon.com, Borders.com, and other online book retailers. Meet a remarkable woman. Read an unforgettable love story.

About the Author: Karen J. Hasley grew up in America's heartland. Research into 17th-century female poets showed her the rich treasures in women's lives of the past, and in 2006 Karen's first novel, "Lily's Sister," hit the stands. The rest is - quite literally - history.
     Do you recognize these American women? Jane Addams.Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Dr. Alice Hamilton. Dr. Kate W. Barrett. Donaldina Cameron. Gertrude Stein. Mary Cassatt. You'll find them all - and then some -in Karen's books, which intertwine the lives of fictional heroines and historical real-life women so closely and convincingly that you may need to check a history book to figure out which is which.
     Hasley's 6-book Laramie Series spans the years between 1880 and 1919 with satisfying stories from America's past, each with a competent, courageous woman at its center. The books can stand independently and be enjoyed in any order. One reviewer wrote that "Hasley's impeccable writing" offered a "satisfying read from beginning to end."(ABJ, 2006)
     The author's first stand-alone novel "The Dangerous Thaw of Etta Capstone" was a quarter finalist for Amazon's 2013Breakthrough Novel of the Year, the PW review stating that it was "subtle and effective." "Magnificent Farewell," a second stand-alone novel set during World War One, was a "highly recommended" Finalist in the 2016 Wishing Shelf Book Awards.  
     In 2014, Karen offered readers a trio of light-hearted Victorian romances. The Penwarrens Series ~ made up of "Claire, After All," "Listening to Abby," and "Jubilee Rose" ~ is the author's affectionate, admiring homage to Georgette Heyer.
     Karen returned to America's heartland in 2017 with the first book of a new series set in 19th-century New Hope, Nebraska. As readers have come to expect, "What We Carry With Us" offers mystery, history, and romance with an engaging, strong-minded woman at its center.

Remarkable women. Unforgettable stories.  All in historical settings.
