Linda Rettstatt is a multi-published author of women’s fiction. She began her storytelling career early in life, swapping bedtime stories with her grandfather, rather than sleeping. As a clerk with her small hometown newspaper, Linda got her first byline reviewing community theater productions. Though her heart remains in the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania (especially in October), Linda currently resides in Southaven, Mississippi. The Restoration of Abby Walker is her seventh published novel.
