"Beware! Once you start reading The Purple Nightgown, you wont be able to put it down! Lawrence drew me in from the first page and kept me reading until the very end. If you like true crime fiction, you will love reading the story of Stella and Henry!"
Kathleen YBarbo, author of The Black Midnight, The Chisholm Trail Bride, and The Alamo Bride
"A.D. Lawrence has built a tantalizing debut story around a historical setting that is devious and sinister at its core. I was instantly intrigued by the romantic elements of the story, and believe readers who desire a mystery that couples superbly with a cup of coffee will be pleased with this latest release!"
Jaime Jo Wright, author of The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus and Christy Awardwinning, The House on Foster Hill
"The Purple Nightgown draws us into a web of misplaced trust, tangled missteps, rolling remembrance and regret, and loyalties old and new in a taut telling of true history of greed satisfied by preying on the vulnerabilities of those who suffer. With convincing presentation of medical conditions and relatable characters who grow through their circumstances, author A. D. Lawrence crafts a well-paced story that takes us to a satisfying ending."
Olivia Newport, author of the Tree of Life series
"Truth often is stranger than fiction, but the combination in The Purple Nightgown is positively compelling. From the get-go, I had a hard time putting this story down. Author A.D. Lawrence spins a heartbreaking tale of desperation and, ultimately, hope. This is one story that will stick with you long after youve read the last page."
Michelle Griep, Christy Awardwinning author of Once Upon a Dickens Christmas series
