Her kind doctor husband was struck down by a senseless act of violence at his inner-city clinic in Chicago on August 4, 1964. The killer has not yet been found. Now she and her daughter seek to start a fresh life by moving to her grandparents’ long-abandoned estate, nestled in the lovely Ozark region of Arkansas. Elizabeth’s daughter, Alexandria, misses her father terribly, and now she must face extreme culture shock as she’s thrown from modern Chicago society to the slower pace of Carterville. She misses her friends, and she misses the life she’s had to leave behind, the only life she’s ever known.
Her mother cannot let go of the blinding hatred she feels for the person who killed her husband. When the police finally catch the killer, she wants to make sure he’s punished to the maximum for what he did, and most Chicagoans agree with her.
Read how, little by little, the hand of God works in these people’s lives and heals them completely. But don’t skip to the ending, because there are unexpected events that will keep the reader in suspense to the very last page.
TaraSacramento, CA5 Stars Out Of 5A Wonderful Escape to Another time & place!January 20, 2014TaraSacramento, CAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was a wonderful escape to another time & place. I truly loved it...Each page was so engaging I truly did not want to put this book down. I was drawn to it, until I finished the last page. While reading the Rosarium, I could visualize this story line in a movie. I do hope that happens someday soon!

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a 64 year old woman who settled in the Ozarks, but have lived in the East, the West , the Central and now the Southern part of the United States. As a Christian I love to behold the hand of God as He moves silently and powerfully to heal and restore people's lives. Truly His ways are higher then our ways; His thoughts higher than our thoughts, and His love for us deeper than we can possibly understand.
What was your motivation behind this project? The Lord has called me to serve Him through writing and I have answered the call. I believe God's anointing flows through every chapter of "The Rosarium." A rosarium is a beautiful garden of flowers and sometimes trees and other lovely vegetation, which is filled with roses of every kind.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope they will be pleasantly entertained. I hope they will be comforted, and I hope they will be inspired. I believe this book will change some peoples lives for the better, as it has mine.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was wonderfully blessed as I wrote this book, and to this day as I read it here and there, I feel the warm comfort of God and the good folks in Carterville.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The Rosarium is about new beginnings and our struggle between good and evil. It's a book that gives insight to the way God works mysteriously and wonderfully in our lives. A stray dog becomes a comfort and friend to a lonely little girl, and a town once befriended by their long departed relatives becomes a source of hope for a broken-hearted widow. It's a book about friendship, love, and ultimate forgiveness with just enough suspense to keep the reader wanting to read to the end.
