Blurb for A Healing Heart by Angela Breidenbach:

A workaholic woman who has a heart attack must trust the one man who tried to destroy her business. Mara Keegan is an uber-successful mother and a widow of three years. She’s been chasing success and all the “good things in life” for her family to make up for the cruel whim God played on them by taking her husband. In an effort to be the perfect mom, she decides to make a photo memory quilt, a graduation present for her daughter, Cadence. She’s not yet finished when she experiences a heart attack. While Mara recuperates, she revisits the choices she’s made that led to this physically and spiritually broken heart. The memory quilt must be finished in time for Cadence’s big day, but Mara struggles with her burgeoning feelings for the man who must keep Mara’s business going during her recovery, Joel Ryan. Can Joel find his way into Mara’s heart and onto Cadence’s quilt?

Blurb of Callie (Women of Valley View) by Sharon Srock:

Three dire circumstances. Three desperate prayers. One miracle to save them all.

Callie Stillman is drawn to the evasive girl who’s befriended her granddaughter, but the last time Callie tried to help a child, her efforts backfired. Memories of the tiny coffin still haunt her.

Samantha and Iris Evans should be worried about homework, not whether they can pool enough cash to survive another week of caring for an infant while evading the authorities.

Steve Evans wants a second chance at fatherhood, but his children are missing.  And no one seems to want to help the former addict who deserted his family.

For Steve to regain the relationship he abandoned, for his girls to receive the care they deserve, Callie must surrender her fear and rely on God to work the miracle they all need.

    • bn100, Thanks for taking the time to visit. The tag line for my books is : Ordinary women using their faith to do extraordinary things. What could possibly be more inspiring than just being what God called us to be?

  8. Thanks, Deveena and bn100. I’m so glad you could pop over and visit Margaret’s blog. I’m looking forward to Wednesday when we interview Mara Keegan, my heroine from A Healing Heart. She’s quite an interesting little gal 🙂 She’s a lot like many of us ladies, we work so hard and sometimes forget about our creative sides. I hope you all enjoy exploring your “crafty” side too.

  9. Your book When Night Falls is featured today on our Free Books page. If you are interested in becoming Author of the week we would love to feature a page on you. Let me know!
