At age twenty-four, Rebekah heads to America in search of answers. She arrives in Londonderry , New Hampshire , and finds the other half of the medallion—hanging around the neck of Zachariah Thompson, a local man condemned to hang in two days for a murder he did not commit.

Their growing attraction gradually transforms them from rivals over the medallion to partners and then to lovers. Together, they seek the meaning of the medallion’s mysterious symbols: A map to a hidden treasure? A message from Rebekah’s parents? Or—as Rebekah comes to believe—evidence of mystical powers that have brought her and Zachariah together? 

As the mystery unravels and Rebekah finally learns the medallion's secret, she finds a link to her past that will forever change her life.


A Long Walk Home Read an excerpt

A Long Walk Home is a book about three very different women, Annie Jacobs, her former mother-in-law Violet, and Annie's niece Summer, who bridge the generation gap and grow to love and respect one another.

Annie thought she had the perfect marriage. But then her husband died suddenly eighteen months ago, and she discovered he'd been unfaithful. Now she's started a new relationship that is complicated by her former mother-in-law's interference and her niece's arrival.

Violet has strong ideas about morality and what it means to be a good person. She doesn't know her son was unfaithful to Annie, so it seems to her that her former daughter-in-law has fallen into another man's arms and bed too quickly. Then Annie's niece arrives and all Violet's efforts to straighten out the rude teenager fail.

Summer, Annie's thirteen year old niece, has had a tough life. When her drug-addicted mother, Dana, goes into a rehabilitation program, Summer finds herself dumped onto the doorstep of her do-good aunt she barely remembers. Summer yearns to return to her friends and the only life she knows. So what if that life includes stealing, partying, and defiance of all adult supervision.


Winner Takes All Read an excerpt

Recipe for chaos: Start with a raffle for one brand-new Winnebago, a dishonest Winnebago dealer who doesn't intend to part with the prize, a virus-infected computer that spits out two winning tickets. Add Thomas O'Leary and Karen Ann Brown, opposites who instantly dislike each other. Pack them into a motor home for thirty days with three misbehaved boys, a Siamese cat, and a black lab. Let them fight it out in a highly publicized tour, "Survivor" style.

Both Thomas and Karen will do anything to win the grand prize. But the more days-and nights-they spend in each other's company, not to mention the three boys, one dog, one cat, a possible stalker, and hordes of reporters following their every move, the more they realize that there is a much bigger prize at stake-each other.
