Behind the book
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
Vera is the second in the Widows of Blessings Valley series. While it is always a thrill for an author to start a new series, it is with a heavy heart that I am compelled to write this one. I became a widow in April 2018 after a brief battle with cancer took my love from me to be with our Lord. During those agonizing first, few months so many questions flitted into my mind, along with the anger, grief, loneliness, and finally acceptance that my beloved was really gone from this realm. It was some of these questions that inspired this series. I hope it will let other widows, and widowers, know they are not alone with the crazy questions that come to mind. That as they wonder what is or isn’t appropriate, should they remove their ring(s), when, if at all, should they start dating, are they still married or now considered single, what is the proper mourning period in our modern times, when will the anger go away, and the list goes on and on. While I don’t expect this series to be the answers to the grieving of the reader, I do hope that I have somehow eased that feeling of being alone…for you are not.
Here continue the stories of Elizabeth, Vera, Stella, Fannie, Vivian, Charlotte, Violet, and Willa herself—they are the Widows of Blessings Valley.
