About the Author

Rosemary was born in a lovely country town, Bury St. Edmunds, in Suffolk County, England. Her heart is still there even though she has lived in Maine, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and now New Jersey.

She was a "late bloomer", attending college and Law School at night while she worked a full-time job and took care of a family. She graduated Law School, practiced law for a couple of years in New Jersey, and then worked for a large investment company from which she retired. She’s now enjoying her “new life” as a fiction writer.

She's written award-winning environmental research papers on such topics as whales and uranium mining but now writes mainstream, women's fiction. Rosemary is also an accomplished painter and a world-wide traveler. Of course she returns to England every year to visit relatives and to research her current projects which are all set in England. Rosemary writes under her maiden name, Rosemary Goodwin.

Read an Excerpt

The cottage was several hundred years old with black wooden struts tic-tac-toeing the white-mortared walls. A new thatched roof, a foot thick, glowed golden and caressed the diamond-paned windows. The thatcher's design of cross-hatching and borders--his signature--around the roof top reminded Angela of her mother's gold engraved bracelet. Curtains at the open windows billowed in the summer breeze like sails. Looking toward the hazy horizon, she could just make out the white dots which were sheep grazing in the fields of the neighboring farm.

She gazed at the workers bent over in the field.

"Why don't you get an automatic picker, Dad?" Angela called to her father behind her as she walked gingerly between the rows of lavender bushes. "Picking by hand is old fashioned now. That big lavender farm in the next county uses machines."

"'Cause a machine costs a fortune and I only have three acres of lavender--don't earn enough to warrant it. I make more money on the flowers and herbs," her father said. He stopped to catch his breath and wiped his brow with his crumpled handkerchief. Angela turned around to wait for him to catch up.
