Diane grew up on a farm outside Findlay, Ohio, and she often acted out characters from her own stories in the backyard. In high school she would read during classes and hide a novel in front of her in a propped up textbook.

She met her husband while teaching at an orphanage, and they married three years later. Diane says that it took her that long to convince him she was the one for him! While raising their family in southwestern Ohio, she started writing nonfiction and was published. Later, Diane decided it would be a nice escape to write fiction. They were blessed with five daughters and one son. Two daughters were born with Down syndrome and live at home. Their other children live close by. Diane has four adorable grandchildren. Her favorite vacation is going to the beach with the whole family.

Diane gives thanks daily to God for all her blessings.
Molly is a recent widow due to unfortunate circumstances involving a barn fire. She has her hands full as a young mom and expecting her second child. This is the 2nd story in a series. I did not read the first story but that did not leave me confused. This story has a bit of romance and also some suspense along with forgiveness. Good story. I was given a complimentary copy but all thoughts are my honest opinion of the book.
