Mary Freeman has come a long way from the Irish family that didn't want the "little eejit." Now living in Midwest America, she's married with two teenage daughters---but still haunted by those early memories. What will it take to bring Mary face to face with her bitter past---and with God? 320 pages, softcover from Kregel.
Far away from her Irish home, Mary Freeman begins to adapt to life in Midwest America, but family turmoil and her own haunting memories threaten to ruin her future. It takes a crisis in her daughter's life -- and the encouragement of Sally, a plucky Southern transplant -- to propel Mary back to the rocky cliffs of her home in County Clare, Ireland.

Tell us a little about yourself. Before God called me to write, I taught school, coached tennis, stenographically reported depositions, and worked as a homemaker! Then a wonderful story was gifted me on the front porch of my home in Terre Haute, Indiana. In 2005, picked up my "pen," started writing, and have been busy every since.
What was your motivation behind this project? Through Christ's own model of forgiveness, "Mary," the woman who inspired this story found a way to forgive two unloving mothers, one whom she nursed through the ravages of Alzheimer's for well over a decade. And it was only through God's help that the shattered pieces of her fragmented life were arranged by God into His perfect pattern.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A fictional illustration of Romans 8:28, God working good in the lives of those who love Him, who call on His name.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Other than master's training, I'd never written. It was a giant step to trust God in this writing endeavor. Then God sent Mary and me to those rugged cliffs of County Clare, where divine meetings occurred nearly every kilometer of the way.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Lynn Austin, Maureen Lang, the great classical writers, such as C.S. Lewis and A.W. Tozer. I also enjoy literary fiction. A couple of inspiring recent releases include Melanie Dobson's The Black Cloister and Lisa Samson's Quaker Summer
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: You have your own unique story, just waiting to be captured on paper! I can't wait to read it.
