Home for the Heart
I have been working hard on my next book, “Home For the Heart.” It takes place in 1900. The main character is nineteen-year-old, Liz Gilbertson. If you have read my first book “Romance Along the Rails”, you will recognize Liz as four-year-old, Elizabeth Tilman. Elizabeth was orphaned when her parents were killed in a carriage accident. She now lives with Daniel and Elise Gilbertson, her uncle and aunt who have taken her to be their daughter along with their own children, Adam, Julien, and Rachel. Elise loves her adopted family yearns to learn about her birth father’s family. She has also recently been jilted by her fiance.
Michael Brannon arrives from Boston, to work as Daniel’s accountant at the AT&SF Offices in Topeka. He is attracted to Liz, but she’s not ready for a new relationship.
Liz is restless and decides to become a Harvey Girl to refocus and redefine her future.
