ABOUT THE BOOK
Blue Aster Press ISBN 9781736194492
Adult Rating: 4
A dream years in the making becomes reality with the inaugural meeting of The Barefoot Sisterhood…
This feel-good women’s fiction novel is Book 1 in The Barefoot Sisterhood Collection, a spin-off of Lindsay’s Walker Beach Romance series that takes place in the same small town and includes some of the same cast of characters. While you may wish to read that series first, it is not necessary in order to enjoy this one.
Jenna Wakefield has been through a lot in her twenty-seven years—losing her mother, becoming a teen mom, and battling depression, just to name a few. And working a dead-end job, barely paying her bills, and fighting unrequited feelings for her boss aren’t exactly part of the life she always imagined.
With her six children grown and her husband constantly traveling for work, Elise Griffin finds herself utterly without purpose for the first time ever at age sixty-three. But “retirement” isn’t as wonderful as it might sound—it gives her far too much time to think about the affair her husband had a year ago … the one she’s never told anyone about.
When both women are invited into the mysterious Barefoot Sisterhood and asked to help restore an old beachside inn for a good cause, they find themselves supported and encouraged in new and exciting ways. This inspiration leads to dream seeking … and new romance as well.
Discover what happens when women give each other the space to finally dream—and in doing so, make the world a better place.

a diverse group of women are invited to become the Barefoot Sisterhood and help restore an old beachside inn which then would serve as a refuge for battered women.
Working together to physically restore the old inn leads to new friendships and inspiration for their dreams. The women themselves come from all stages of life and support one another in their struggles.
The Inn at Walker Beach has faith elements, memorable characters, and descriptive narratives. Throughout the book, one sees the themes of forgiveness, second chances, and being inspired to be who God called you to be. Harrel doesn’t shy away from hard topics: abuse, depression, marital affairs, etc. and does a wonderful job handling them sensitively.
The second book, A Refuge by the Sea, is expected in August 2022.
