Read full description of the books:
In the beginning I wasn't very thrilled with the characters or the story, though as the book progressed they started to grow on me. It turned out to be a decent story, however there were still a few things that totally didn't enchant me especially about the characters. I didn't like the way Cherish tried to make Silas notice her. She initiated the whole relationship, which kinda works with the story, but it could have been done better. Mr. Winslow; I totally didn't get his attitude changes. Though plausible, some of the things he did seemed slightly far fetched in a way. Silas; his past hurts, though apparently relevant to the story, play such a little part in anything except to explain oh that's just how he is kinda thing... it was like it was supposed to be better developed but fell short for me.

Read information about the authorRuth Axtell Morren wrote her first story when she was 12--a spy thriller--and knew she wanted to be a writer.
There were many detours along the way as she pursued more realistic goals. She studied comparative literature at Smith College, where she received a Bachelor's degree; spent her junior year in Paris; taught English and lived as an au pair in the Canary Islands; worked in international development in Miami, Florida. It was there she met her husband, a Dutchman from Suriname, who took her to the Netherlands to live for six years.
In Holland Ruth began crafting her first serious story in between having children Justin, Adaja and Andre. It was there, too, she gained her first recognition as a writer when she made the finals in the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Contest in 1994.
After the initial euphoria wore off, it was still several years before she made any progress. Ruth and her family moved back to the U.S. to the east coast of Maine. It was the ideal location--surrounded by spruce and fir, a short walk from the rocky seashore--to hunker down in front of her computer and write the stories simmering at the back of her mind.
Ruth's inner journey of faith parallels her outward journey--seemingly circuitous, sometimes wandering in the desert--yet ever-guided by the Good Shepherd.
Ruth currently teaches Spanish to her children and a small group of elementary school children in an after-school program. She also enjoys gardening and has recently learned to knit. Living in rural Maine has given her an opportunity to learn to start a fire in a woodstove on a cold winter morning, shovel snow and realize how many stars are in the sky at night.
