About Mattie's Choice

It's 1925 in rural Oklahoma. A naïve seventeen-year-old Mattie chooses to elope with Jesse, leaving behind an ideal life with her wealthy and loving family. With hope for a happy future, she vows to stay with her husband through good times or bad, but the wonderful life Mattie dreams of is shattered by Jesse's abusive nature and his refusal to allow her to see her family.
When Jesse’s brother, Joe, brings home his new wife--the vivacious Ella--Mattie believes Ella is living the life Mattie prays to have with Jesse. As the years grow harder and Jesse and Mattie’s growing family struggles to survive The Great Depression, The Dust Bowl and illness, Jesse’s abuse worsens. 
Life also unravels for Ella and Joe as he begins to abuse his wife. Ella makes the choice that Mattie has never considered.

Hi Anne, first, tell us a little about yourself.

I've written over a dozen stories of Romance, Mayhem, and Faith.  When I'm not working on my next novel I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  Formerly a native of Oklahoma, I now reside in Kansas.

Lots of writers loved to read as children. Did you? If so what did you read?

Oh yes.  I've been a mystery lover since I was a kid.  Mostly Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys.  As I grew older, my mother introduced me to Phyllis A. Whitney's books.  One of my favorites was 'The Mystery of the Haunted Pool' which won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Juvenile novel.

Why do you write?

I've always been a storyteller, even as a kid.  I'd dream up these wild adventures which a lot of times got me into trouble.  Finally, my mother convinced me to star…

Glass Blowing and The Christmas Admirer
By Laura V. Hilton

Right before my youngest son joined the Coast Guard we went on a short mini-vacation to Springfield, Missouri, actually going farther north almost to Kansas City to see another Amish community near there in Osceola.

But upon the return to Springfield, Steve read about a glass blowers shop in the downtown area. We found the address and went to visit it. It is owned by an older gentleman and his son. They had a display area set up where people could see their wares and buy them and then a work area where the son mostly worked, and talked about how the fire needed to be so hot, and showed us how he worked and made things. As we watc…

September 2017 New Releases

More in-depth descriptions of these books can be found on the ACFW Fiction Finder website.

Contemporary Romance:

Planting Hope by Brenda S. Anderson -- Jess Beaumont is trying to get her separated parents together again by restoring the family cabin gardens that helped them fall in love. Luke Harrison inherited his Gran’s candy store, but would rather have a Vice President position in his family’s land development business—a sure sign of his father’s approval. To get the promotion, he must acquire the land on both sides of his store within five months, including the Beaumont cabin. As Luke gets to know Jess, he realizes buying the Beaumont cabin and land will nip their blossoming romance in the bud. Even worse, it could end her parents’ marriage. But if he doesn’t succeed, he could be trading his corner office for the candy store counter…for good. Is their romance doomed? Or could the classic combination of chocolate and flowers solve everything? (Contemporar…
