Did I Tell You About My Debut Novel?

Just in case you don't know about my debut novel, To Dance Once More (OakTara), let me tell you about it.

To Dance Once More -- All Lydia wants is to travel the world before she has to settle down with a husband. But she may not have that choice anymore.

April 1886
Debutante Lydia Jane Barrington lives a carefree, protected existence on Live Oaks Plantation in Florida. But while her sisters happily learn the traditional tasks of women and talk of courting, Lydia dreams of adventure and independence. Even her friendship with handsome Hamilton Scarbrough isn’t enough to hold her back.
Then one day Hamilton opens Lydia’s eyes and her heart to love. But before they can receive permission to court, Lydia overhears a secret conversation about an unscrupulous business deal. Worse, it has everything to do with her and her future. Now she’s faced with the biggest decision of her life—to concede or to fight. Either choice will require great sacrifice…and, perhaps, countless rewards.
Passion. Friendship. A bitter enemy. A life-changing decision.

Set in Victorian-era Florida.

To Dance Once More Sneak Peek

Quote from the book:
“I guess sometimes it seems like God doesn’t even know who I am,” Lydia said.
Eliza, her eldest sister replied, “Of course He does. Just because things aren’t always as you want them doesn’t mean God is absent in your life. In fact, it may be His very presence in your life that makes you feel that way.”
“What do you mean?” Lydia put the skein of yarn in her lap.
“I mean that you may feel that way because some things you wish for do not come true. And it could be that God’s all-caring hand is guiding you down another path that He knows is better for you.”
“Oh,” Lydia said, quietly reflecting on Eliza’s words.
