Because so many authors are feeling the loss of our friend, Jane Orcutt, we’ve been thinking up ways to honor her. As an author, I’d like to think my books would live on and touch other lives. I’m sure Jane would wish the same. And so a number of her author friends are placing orders for a couple of her books, one already out and one about to come out. Not only will we have something good to read, but we hope the sales will result in royalty payments to her family down the road.
Maybe some of you readers would like to participate. So here are the links to the books on Amazon. (Click on the titles.)
DEAR BABY GIRL (available now)
Fifteen-year-old Merrilee wants only the best for the child she cannot keep. As she struggles with giving her baby up for adoption, she records her anguished decision with letters to her baby girl. This tender story of shattered dreams offers the hope of redemption and new beginnings.
ALL THE TEA IN CHINA (available in June)
The good young Englishwoman knows that her destiny depends upon a good marriage match. But Isabella Goodrich is not your typical good young Englishwoman. After an encounter with those less fortunate than she, witty and fun-loving Isabella makes a shocking decision. Against everyone’s advice and wishes, she is going to become a missionary in the Far East. Fighting against cultural expectations, common sense, and a mentor who is not as he seems, Isabella leaves her predictable Oxford life behind and sets sail to a new world fraught with danger. Can she trust the mysterious missionary Phineas Snowe? Or will her adventure end before it even begins?
