About the Author

One of Janet Tronstad's favorite childhood memories is of borrowing Zane Gray novels from her grandfather's bookshelf. "There probably weren't more than fifty titles there," she recalls. "It was only a shelf of old books in the back bedroom. But it was the call to adventure for me. I still remember what it felt like to start reading a new book. It's the same excitement I feel today when I start writing a new book." Janet, one of five children, grew up on a family farm near Fort Shaw, Montana, a small town with a population of fewer than 200. This small town and the thriving church she attended have been an inspiration for her popular Dry Creek series of novels published by the Steeple Hill line. "People respond to the characters I have in my Dry Creek series," says Janet, "and a lot of that is because of the sense of community they share. I think we all hunger to be in a place where people know us and accept us." Janet likes to write books that show people struggling with issues in their life and in their faith. "We all struggle," she says. "That's why we like to read about other people who are facing problems." In addition to the Dry Creek series, Janet is also currently writing books that are set in urban locations. "The rural-urban switch is one I've been conscious of in my own life since I grew up on a farm and then, with graduate school and various jobs, lived in several large cities before settling in Pasadena, California," says Janet. "I often have a character that grew up in a small town and just moved to a big city or the other way around." In her upcoming novel Going to the Chapel, Janet writes about a young woman who grew up in the relatively small town of Blythe, California, and then moved to Hollywood, hoping to find not only an exciting job but also the respect of her family. Janet holds a master's degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin and was published in various national magazines before she started writing fiction.

Jillian Hart is an amazing Christian author. I have read several of her books and she did an amazing job with every one of them!

I enjoy reading about the McKaslins. It was an enjoyable read of best friends falling in love. I would definitely recommend it.

I had read a couple of books by this author from the Love Inspired Historical series (Homespun Bride and High Country Bride). They were about the McKaslin family, two brothers, and I really enjoyed their stories. When I searched for the third brother's story, I found a series of sisters. This prompted me to visit Jillian Hart's website because I prefer to read a series in order. This is the first story about the sisters and was written years before the Historical McKaslin brothers. This was an enjoyable, quick read and I'm interested to see how the family tree plays out! FYI...the 2nd book about the sisters was titled "The Sweetest Gift"; however, it was changed to "Gifts From the Heart". Hope you enjoy Ms. Hart's books as I have. They address common life lessons from a Christian perspective. I didn't feel any if her books I've read are "preachy", but if you don't want to read anything remotely Christian, then these won't be what you are looking for. The stories are well written and will draw you in like you are part of the family or wished you were! Recommended for 12+.
