To end September, I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from the upcoming 2020 project. Usually these follow the Mother's Day tote bag projects, but this year that is on hold. As soon as we can reschedule the authors and I will get tote bags to the three Fisher Houses. But until then, enjoy these books from the authors who will be sponsoring the 2020 Mother's Day thermal bags for three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver. They will also be participating in the big readers giveaway at the end of the project!

SEEKING REFUGE by Lenora Worth is in this week's spotlight. This book came out earlier this month and is the third in her Amish Seasons series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about the book:

“Seeking Refuge is an inspiring story written by Lenora Worth in her Amish Seasons series. This story continues from her previous book Her Amish Child. This story definitely deals with forgiveness in all forms. The characters are fantastic and fit this story perfectly. The cover will definitely draw you in it is so sweet.” —Goodreads Reviewer

Here's the blurb for SEEKING REFUGE:

Will love be enough to heal their past?

Her secret kept them apart…
Will courage give them another chance?

Days before her wedding, a wrenching ordeal shattered Josie Fisher’s dreams…and she fled to her Amish hometown to start over. Now Tobias Mast has arrived with two goals: to find Josie and learn why she called off their wedding, and to buy a home. When the only house he can afford is next door to Josie’s farm, will she finally risk telling him her dark secret?

I enjoy Lenora's uplifting stories. I've never read one of her Amish romances, but this sounds like an emotional one. I wonder what her dark secret is, though based on the cover I might have an idea. What do you think?
