Would God remain true to His promise? Could He be counted on to never leave nor forsake one of His own?

Josephine Van der Mere felt desperate and alone. Serenity had left on her own adventure out West, and her father, New York State's Assemblyman Samuel Pownell, had fled from the bounty hunters who were determined to arrest him for aiding runaway slaves.

Everything had been so clear before her beloved Sam had gone. Their mission; their love; their future together.

With a heavy heart, Josephine read the letter from Sam.

Thanks to Clare, much has changed in my life, which brings me to the purpose of this letter. Things were moving so fast before I left New York. Having to remain confined to a bed for a spell has given me time to slow down and think about my life and what I want to do with what's left of it.

A cold chill passed through Josephine. Had Sam fallen in love with his nurse, Clare Thornton? Had she lost him forever?

Determined to find the answers for herself, Josephine embarks on an adventure that carries her from New York to New Orleans. Filled with danger and intrigue, the endless question haunts her, "Would God remain true to His promise to never leave nor forsake her?"

Book Three in the Serenity Inn Series, Josephine's Fortune captures the conflict of one woman's spiritual journey: a woman courageous enough to put God's promise to the test as she travels across the country in the years prior to the Civil War.

About the Author

"Joy is a perfume you can't pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." At conferences from Maine to Hawaii, Alaska to the Caribbean and beyond, Kay Rizzo shares her excitement for living God's abundant life. She delivers spiritual insights with a balance of humor, drama, and vulnerability that moves her audience from laughter to tears to conviction.

Former girls' dean, high school and college English teacher, sold her first book in 1985. Since trading in her grade book for a computer keyboard, she's published 41 books and 1000+ articles, including I WILL DIE FREE (endorsed by Amnesty International); ON WINGS OF PRAISE; and the SERENITY INN SERIES. Her latest books include ELIZABETH, AN SDA GIRL SERIES and POPSICLES, BLACK HOLES AND BURNT TOAST, the 2003 devotional for junior age readers.

In her spare time she writes a monthly column for "Winner" magazine, a positive lifestyle journal for preteens. A facilitator for Florence Littauer's West Coast, "Writers' and Speakers' Seminars," Kay served on the 2002 teaching staff at the Glorietta Christian Writers' Conference.

Kay met Richard, her college professor husband, in the school library at Atlantic Union College. Their 42 year romance produced two daughters, two sons-in-laws and two grandsons. Mini-honeymoons to the coast, kicking back with the grandbabies, making music with family and friends, reading a good book and traveling to far-away places are the Rizzos' greatest loves.
