Blurb of Rose House:

Amid a tangle of rose blooms and thorns, widow Lillian Diamon’s private moment of grief is captured in a spectacular painting on display in a Sonoma Valley, California art gallery. Her quest to find the artist unravels a greater mystery changing everything about her loss-and her future. Will Lillian and her sister Geena ever see eye to eye to again? And who is the mysterious artist who captured her private pain? Filled with romance and intrigue, Rose House is a story of one woman’s journey for hope, faith and truth.

Jeanette Windle’s bio:

As a daughter of missionary parents, award-winning author and journalist Jeanette Windle grew up in the rural villages, jungles, and mountains of Colombia, now guerrilla hot zones. Her detailed research and writing is so realistic that it has prompted government agencies to question her to determine if she has received classified information. Currently based in Lancaster, PA, Jeanette has lived in six countries and traveled in some thirty, including Afghanistan. She has more than a dozen books in print, including best-selling CrossFire and Tyndale House Publishers release, Betrayed.

Blurb of Veiled Freedom:

Kabul, 2001–American forces have freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. Kites have returned to the skies. Women have removed their burqas. There is dancing in the streets.

Eight years later, Afghanistan is a far cry from those first images of a country freed from Taliban rule. When Special Forces veteran Steve Wilson returns to Kabul as security chief to the Minister of Interior, he is disillusioned with the corruption and violence that has overtaken the country he fought to free. Relief worker Amy Mallory arrives in Afghanistan ready to change the world. She soon discovers that as a Western woman, the challenges are monumental. Afghani native Jamil returns to his homeland seeking work, but a painful past continues to haunt him.
All three search for truth and freedom when a suicide bombing brings them together on Kabul’s dusty streets. But what is the true source of freedom–or its cost?
