ABOUT MAGGIE'S JOURNEY - Series: McKenna's Daughters

October 4, 2011
Near her eighteenth birthday, Margaret Lenora Caine finds a chest hidden in the attic containing proof that she's adopted. The spoiled daughter of wealthy merchants in Seattle, she feels betrayed by her real parents and by the ones who raised her. But mystery surrounds her new discovery, and when Maggie uncovers another family secret, she loses all sense of identity.

Love Finds You May 1, 2010
All that glitters is not gold. It’s 1890, and Golden, New Mexico, is a booming mining town where men far outnumber women. So when an old wealthy miner named Philip Smith finds himself in need of a nursemaid, he places an ad for a mail-order bride—despite the protests of his friend Jeremiah. Hoping to escape a perilous situation back East, young Madeleine Mercer answers the ad and arrives in town under a cloud of suspicion. But just as she begins to win over Philip—and Jeremiah himself—the secrets she left behind threaten to follow her to Golden...and tarnish her character beyond redemption.

Seasons of the Heart October 4, 2011

Why does everyone think a girl’s only lot in life is to find a husband and settle down?

Kathleen Muldoon is twenty-three and tired of ranch living. Fiercely independent and determined to become a nurse, she has left her family’s ranch to study medicine under Old Doc Jensen andlive in town with her Aunt Mae, who runs a boardinghouse.
 
Daniel Monroe has just arrived in Porterfield to set up his law practice. Sparks fly when he is introduced to Kate at the boardinghouse, but the initial attraction quickly dissolves into an argument—the first of many. Daniel is enamored with Kate but uncomfortable with her independent spirit and dreams of becoming a nurse.
 
When trouble erupts between the ranchers and lumberjacks over timber rights, Kate is furious to learn that Daniel has worked out an agreement she believes will destroy her father’s land. Can they overcome their pride and help each other become everything God wants them to be?
 
Set in the late 1800s, the Seasons of the Heart series follows the lives of four women and their families, weaving together their stories of faith, life, and love as they bond in friendship only God could orchestrate.

 

The power of God's love changes lives and heals hearts! When Abigail Monroe joins her brother, Daniel, in Portersville, Texas, life isn't quite what she expected---until she injures her arm and is treated by Dr. Elliot Jensen. But is Elliot too consumed with guilt and his past to to wonder why Abigail is so accident-prone?

These are great sounding books, I want them all, lol.

When do you start Decorating for Christmas Paula. Do you do things differently now that you are in GA??

Hi, Wendy!! In order to be entered we need to hear when you start decorating for Christmas and when you take it down!! grin! Yes, there is a GREAT selection of books today!

I decorate my tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and go from there.

I take everything down after New Years Day.

We start whenever our daughter decides to go up in attic to get decorations down...she isn't working right now, so she has time to do it!  The first thing to go up is the door wreath, and then the tree gets put together.  And, just when I have everything the way I want it, it's time to take it all down.  My hubby's family has a tradition - all decorations have to be taken down and put away before midnight on Jan 1st.

Oh, Funny you should say Chris, Just when you got it looking great it's time to take everything down. Your husbands family even had an exact time!! How fun!

Start first weekend in December and take down after new year's!Start with my tree and mantle then do the outside of the house!

The rule in our house was nothing Christmas until after my dad's birthday (Dec 9th). First thing that went up was usually the Christmas lights outside and the Nativity scene. We usually took things down on Little Christmas or Three King's Day (January 6th)

Good to hear about your family Charity. My birthday is two days before Christmas!! Everything has always been decorated on my birthday!! Grin! Thanks for sharing!

My daughter's BD is two days before Christmas too.   What a wonderful blessing to be born near the Lord's Birthday.

I was supposed to be born in January. Came early so that I could join in the Lord's Special day!!

We have been known to put up the tree on Thanksgiving with the entire family participating or the day after Thanksgiving.   We take the tree and other decorations down after Epiphany..January 7.
