Meet the Author

Ruth Axtell Morren wrote her first story when she was 12 — a spy thriller — and knew she wanted to be a writer.

There were many detours along the way as she pursued more realistic goals. She studied comparative literature at Smith College, where she received a Bachelor's degree; spent her junior year in Paris; taught English and lived as an au pair in the Canary Islands; worked in international development in Miami, Florida. It was there she met her husband, a Dutchman from Suriname, who took her to the Netherlands to live for six years.

In Holland Ruth began crafting her first serious story in between having children Justin, Adaja and Andre. It was there, too, she gained her first recognition as a writer when she made the finals in the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Contest in 1994.

After the initial euphoria wore off, it was still several years before she made any progress. Ruth and her family moved back to the U.S. to the east coast of Maine. It was the ideal location — surrounded by spruce and fir, a short walk from the rocky seashore — to hunker down in front of her computer and write the stories simmering at the back of her mind.

Ruth's inner journey of faith parallels her outward journey — seemingly circuitous, sometimes wandering in the desert — yet ever-guided by the Good Shepherd.

Ruth currently teaches Spanish to her children and a small group of elementary school children in an after-school program. She also enjoys gardening and has recently learned to knit. Living in rural Maine has given her an opportunity to learn to start a fire in a woodstove on a cold winter morning, shovel snow and realize how many stars are in the sky at night.

    Gut wrenchingly wonderful story of conversion & forgiveness!

    Well, once again, after reading some of the negative reviews on this book I began reading with a wary heart. And once again I was pleasantly surprised. Unlike some I liked and understood both the hero and the heroine. The hero is a devout Christian who has saved himself for his future bride and can't fathom the idea that she will be less than pure. The heroine comes from an abusive background who has never known a man worth trusting until she meets the hero. It's a long road for both of them. He loves her but feels he shouldn't. She loves him but feels she's not worthy.

    I found the medical history very interesting and it made me appreciate so very much how far we've come. I was definitely educated in this area.

    I did feel that the heroine's conversion was a bit quick in the end (which is highly unlike RAM first two books in this series). I felt that she should have gone through a longer period of learning about Jesus before she would want to asked Him into her life. I also felt that the hero should have asked the heroine's forgiveness for his harsh words toward her. There was something else that happened that I almost wish hadn't, but this isn't a 'fluff' book. It deals with some harsh realities and it was very well done. I just know I'm going to love the fourth book too, and then I'm going to be so disappointed that they are over.

    Highly Recommended

    Morren does it again with yet another great novel--set in London in the 1800s. One of the best things about this particular book are the occupations of the two main characters, Ian & Eleanor. He is a surgeon--she a stage actress. The novel takes a fascinating look throught the window of these characters, and their jobs as well. With rich description and insight into medical procedures of the day and the world of British acting, this book will keep you engrossed until the end. On a personal level I also found myself challenged by the messages of the novel and wanting to meditate more on the scriptures as Ian learned to do. Great book and well worth the time!

    Love!

    It was so good.so many times u will read a christian book that does not incorperate God and faith very well or turns out cheesy and does not have hardships or show a realisric example of your walk with God. This book was none of those things.
