Andi Nelson’s dream was to go to the Naval Academy and serve her country. As an intelligence commander with SEAL Team Three, her life is what she always imagined until a lapse in intelligence leads to the death of her team and the man she loves. Plagued with survivor’s guilt, Andi returns to her hometown in the Arkansas Ozarks only to discover that Buffalo Springs is as depressed and broken as she is.

Wade Montgomery, a mover and shaker in New York City’s world of finance, has closed his heart to the possibility of love. When he returns to Buffalo Springs to care for his ailing mother, Wade accepts the position of mayor and the task of helping the town to die gracefully. Succumbing to the pitfalls of pride, he closes his eyes to the illegal dealings within the town’s government, plunging the town and Wade into a pit of lies and deceit that may destroy them both.

Will restoring the town provide the purpose Andi needs to continue living? Will Andi’s determination to save the town open Wade’s eyes and his heart?

“This book was a joy to read! It is very well written and the author makes the book come to life. Even though this is book 3, I had no problem knowing what was going on. Now I want to read the other two books in the series. ” — Ann Ferri, Goodreads, 2019

5.0 out of 5.0 stars
The night I started reading Island of Hope, I intended to only read 1-2 chapters but quickly found myself lost in the characters and wanting to read more. It only took me 3 days to finish! I loved continuing to follow the characters’ lives from the first 2 books but also enjoyed the addition of new characters. Can’t wait for Amy’s next book! — Shauna Joesten, Goodreads, 2019

Hope is that thing that sees through walls, breaks through barriers, and propels dreams into reality.

Despite numerous struggles and tragedies, the Middleton and Kelly families live humble and faith-filled lives on the Atlantic Ocean resort town of Chincoteague Island, Virginia. The tight-knit families represent everything Megan and Nick hope to have – loving parents, welcoming homes, and stable lives. Megan escaped from a broken home in a neighborhood torn by the ravages of gangs and drugs. Nick longs to be part of the loving family he never had. All they’ve ever wanted is within their grasp if they but reach for it. To do so, they must have trust, faith, and hope in themselves, each other, and God; but opening their hearts to love will be harder than they imagined.

Nobody wanted them, so I thought, heck, I’ll take them. I held up … Read more Hidden Treasure

New Beginnings

It’s still cold outside, but it’s predicted to reach 60° two days this week. There are signs everywhere that spring is coming. Our irises are already six inches tall, and the daffodils are probably just below the swath of snow stretching across the garden. The days are growing longer, and Easter–late this year–is just one … Read more New Beginnings

The Other UPs of Lent

When our children were young, we always talked to them about Lent and how it leads up to Easter. We made sure they all gave up something and understood the sacrifice involved. One year, when they were all very young, we even did the jelly bean Lenten activity. One thing I’m not sure we did … Read more The Other UPs of Lent
