Experience Meeting Author

Being in a profession that handles books a great deal, one of the exciting aspects is meeting an author on occasion. Such an experience recently happened. What made this more exciting was that the author was in Wabash doing research for new series based on Wabash in the mid to late 1920's. The author is Sharlene MacLaren. Sharlene is currently doing research on a series title called River of Hope. The setting will be the Wabash River, Wabash IN. The proposed titles of the three books in the River of Hope series are River Song, Winds of Grace, and Waters of Mercy.

Sharlene was here in Wabash a few weeks ago during research. She and her husband stayed at the new Charley Creek Inn, met with people locally, visited the library and museum, and got a feel of the history of Wabash in the 1920's into the 1930's. It is quite exciting to make such connections and for Wabash to be the focal point of her new books!

Sharlene has a number of books published including the Daughters of Jacob Kane book series. The titles in this series are Hannah Grace, Maggie Rose, and Abbie Ann . These books are part of our library collection and thus available to check out with library card. This series and the River of Hope series are in the genre of Historical/Christian Fiction. The names of people and places will not be the same as the names of people and places the book/series is based on.

This is quite exciting and look forward to when the River of Hope series comes out! The first book of the new series (River Song) is scheduled to be released in Spring of 2011.


Below is a short synopsis of book in the River of Hope series:

River Song: Widowed woman with two small children struggles to operate the family restaurant single-handedly until a drifter with nothing but a knapsack and a harmonica in his pocket comes to town and offers to lend a hand in exchange for living in the small quarters above the restaurant.

Winds of Grace: Young women on the run from the law makes a rash decision to marry a widower with four unruly children, hoping name change and his secluded farm will lend protection from her past.

Waters of Mercy: Scandal surrounds a women in her early 20s when it becomes obvious she is pregnant-and unmarried. What people do not know is that their gruff, law enforcing sheriff's son raped her-and the sheriff will stop at nothing to protect his son's name-and his. When the town's new doctor gets involved, trouble escalates in the form of thievery, arson, and death threats.
