White: The Restoration Trilogy, Book One
In WHITE: The Restoration Trilogy, Book One, as historic preservationist Jennifer and brooding bachelor Michael restore his ancestors' historic doctor's residence in a rural Georgia community, they uncover the 1920s-era prejudice and secrets that caused Michael's branch to fall off the family tree. Jennifer is determined to fulfill her first professional position with integrity even if her employer lacks a proper appreciation of history. Far more challenging -- and sinister -- than the social landscape of Hermon are the strange accidents hinting that someone doesn't want them on the Dunham property. Yet Michael's and Jennifer's own pasts pose the biggest obstacles to laying a fresh foundation of family and community.
Why the author wrote this book:
My parents' real-life restoration of a historic doctor's house and apothecary shop inspired this fictionalized series. The idea provided a great opportunity to mirror spiritual and emotional healing through the concept of physical healing and a historical restoration process. Romance and suspense build throughout the series as the modern characters encounter mysterious accidents and uncover historical back stories with lessons of "heart healing."
