Novels


Lost Sunrise, World War II ended over four years ago for Joe Martinson and when he returned home to his little Indiana town and his work at the paper as a photographer, he hoped to forget the past and move on, but if you ask his father Henry, Joe never really moved on and all he does is hide from the world behind the lens of his camera.

Joe is convinced he can exist in his quiet, uncomplicated life, burying the memory of all he faced, that is until he comes face to face with Elizabeth Thompson, his one true love from long ago. In an instance Joe is confronted with the idea of a second chance…and could it really be possible?

At a time when Joe and Elizabeth are lost in a world that seems to be changing before their eyes, they come face to face with their past, and the possibility of a future they never imagined.

As they rekindle their love affair, Elizabeth teaches Joe to confront the ghosts of war. She helps him find a life that was almost lost to him, but she also helps him tell his story, their story, which will forever change both of their lives.

Their love story is one that we all hope for, it’s about forgiveness, second chances and finding that one person that sees the best parts of us, even when life leaves us broken.
