BOOK BLURB: A package lost in the mail since 1940 brings a modern couple together in a miraculous.

Bestselling author VIOLET PEARL lives a perfectly content life: she helps run The Texas Pearl, her family’s inn, lives with her sister and grandmother, and attends a great church just a block from home. She has never left her little corner of Texas and has no desire to do so now. In her spare time, Violet mentally travels to far off New York City, 1944, to solve crimes as the widow Mandalynn Clementine, the savvy sleuth in her murder mystery novels.

US Army First Lieutenant CHASE ANDERSON feels like he needs a change. From his duty station in Hawaii, he receives a job offer in the civilian market at the same time he’s asked to coach a pee wee football camp hosted by his alma mater, Texas A&M. Chase decides to take leave and coach the summer camp, intending to also check out the job offer. He has no idea God has other plans for him.

When a time-worn postal package arrives at the inn addressed to Chase Anderson with a 1940 postmark, Violet and Chase discover that his great-grandfather had also visited the inn as a guest all those years before. The box brings them together in a miraculous way, and their feelings for each other begin to grow.

Will Chase resign his commission and live out his days in College Station? Or is Violet willing to break out of her perfectly contented shell and experience life beyond her little corner of Texas?

For VIOLET PEARL and CHASE ANDERSON to end up together, one of them will have to make a huge change. A message from God arrives in the form of a package from 1940. This humble box brings their hearts together even though they live and work thousands of miles apart. They each must listen closely to understand the message to close the distance.

3. I think the most fun time I've had is the vacation we took when our children we almost or just teens. We went to the east, Boston, Washington DC, etc. It was fun to see all the historic sites. I'd revisit those sites again.

3. Would want to go to the depression years and to see how the Waltons really lived, off the land so I could learn more things.

Thanks for the chance.

#2. I really love the Regency Era and its clothing. However, I would like to step back in time to when Adam and Eve walked the earth and wore clothing that God provided. 

I would go back to Trinidad  with  my sisters  and mom. We would go to the beach with my nieces and  nephews and just enjoy each others  company.

One of my favorite vacations was to Gettysburg and Harper's Ferry.  I would love to take my boys to see the monuments built there. 

I would revisit Washington, D.C. and go up the Washington Monument! I didn't get to do that and I have always regretted that.

I want to go back to Washington, D.C. to see the Smithonian.  I was there about 30 years ago and have wanted to go again.

I just read an Edwardian era novel set in Great Britain.  I would so love to visit a day back then.  I loved the dresses. So feminine and pretty.

#3.  Puerto Rico.  I would explore places where we did not go before like exploring  the rainforest and kayaking at night in the waters.

I would go back to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. I was able to go there on a cruise when I was in my early twenties and it was so beautiful!

2. I would go back to the late 1800s, my favorite time in history. I would like to be a homesteader on the prairie for a firsthand look about what life was really like in the era I like to write about.

I would go back to being a young mother and be more relaxed and encouraging.
