2. Adventures of Writing (Interview)
Special thanks to Victoria Marie Lees who interviewed me at her blog, Adventures in Writing. As well, she included the following review: “A Subtle Grace is alive with drama. The obstacles are many; the characters, lively. The devil lives in the historical world of the O’Donovan family. The writer knows her genre. This Catholic Fiction novel demonstrates the power of love and faith to forgive and protect. You won’t be disappointed.” A Subtle Grace front cover Nov2013

Philadelphia, 1876: Caroline Martin foresees a joyous future when she meets a wealthy, moral man. But unexpected tragedy topples her illusions, opening the way to a profound understanding of God — a moving tale with over 220 five and four star reviews on Amazon. In Name Only won the Gold medal in Religious Fiction in the 2010 IPPY Awards and has been an Amazon Kindle Top Ten bestseller since February 2012.

Reviews:
“If you love romance but hate smut, pick up this beautiful story and let it carry you away. The characters are believable, layered, human and humorous even in the midst of tragedy. The reader never loses hope and is rewarded on every page with little gems of character behavior, dialogue, plot twists and romantic intrigue. I was so very sorry when it ended!”
Lisa Mladinich, author, founder Amazing Catechists

” …conveys the beautiful Catholic teachings on conjugal love, and shares both a pro-life story and a conversion story.”
Jean Heimann, Catholic Fire
