out of the storm love unexpected hearts made whole

Jody Hedlund pens a new historical fiction series set in the 1860s and featuring life in the isolated lighthouses on the shoreline of Michigan’s Great Lakes.

Out of the Storm is a novella telling the original story of the wooden cross, the cross that Emma finds and eventually gives to Ryan. The cross symbolizes hope in the midst of despair and trials as told in the story of Henry Cole and Isabella Thornton.

In Love Unexpected, Emma Chambers and her brother Ryan are left destitute following a shipwreck. Ryan is able to find work. The only solution for Emma is a marriage of convenience to the Patrick Garraty, a widowed lighthouse keeper with a young toddler – but Patrick has a secret he is hiding from others.

In Hearts Made Whole, Ryan Chambers, an injured veteran of the Civil War, is assigned to the lighthouse. Caroline Taylor has been acting as the lighthouse keeper since the death of her father. She will lose her means of providing for her siblings.  Who is trying to scare Caroline away with escalating violent pranks?
