A Fun-to-read Review

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ June 23, 2016

 A review should be as much fun to read as the book itself. Sheila Deeth, an Amazon Top Reviewer, achieves that high level in her review of Where Love Illumines, book 2 in the Where There is Love series.

And, as a bonus, this is two reviews in one because she shares charming comments from her mum in England.  Thank you, Sheila and Mum!

“What a wonderful story," says my mother. "As a Methodist of 85 years standing I have read a lot about the early days of Methodism, both in stories and in factual accounts. The background to this book and the accuracy of the descriptions, both of apparel and of stately homes is astonishing. It is hard to realise that the book was written by an American author. I began to read it halfway...


Jane Austen in Boise

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ June 11, 2016

The Idaho Chapter of the Jane Austen Society of North America has an annual summer picnic which we sometimes bill as our Box Hill picnic after the pivotal scene in Emma. This years’ event was held today in the beautiful garden of one of our members. We held our annual book exchange where members bring Jane Austen themed books to share, had a short business meeting, and most of all enjoyed the delicious dishes members brought to share and visiting with like-minded friends.

Here I am setting out with my English cake (brought from Canada) and enjoying a mimosa with...


Fay Sampson Mines Riches from Family Research

By Fay Sampson ~ May 16, 2016

 It began when my young grandson came home from school saying that his homework was to find out what he could about his family roots. Our son rang us to see if we could help. From then on, both he and I were smitten with the family history bug. It appeals to me for all sorts of reasons. 

Before I became a writer I was a mathematics teacher. It’s all about solving problems. Sometimes the progression back from...

Where There is Love continues with another enduring true story of faith and struggle in eighteenth century England: Mary Tudway is forced to choose between two worlds: the pleasurable life of her high society friends Sarah Child, heiress of Osterley Park, and the Bishop of Raphoe and his dashing Nephew, Roger; or the life of...


Sally Wright Talks in Depth about Behind the Bonehouse

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ May 10, 2016

 Sally Wright's wonderful new novel Behind the Bonehouse launches today. In celebration of this publishing event I am privileged to share Sally's story with my readers. Such an in-depth interview is unusual for this very private author and such a lengthy post is unusual for this blog, but I believe you'll agree the content is worth it for its insight into a writer's life and to add extra meaning to your reading of this exceptional novel.

Building a Bonehouse

Right after I’d finished writing Breeding Ground in August 2013, and was about to begin a...


Newsletter Launched--Welcome to my World

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ May 7, 2016

 Whee! It's a bit like jumping off that high-diving board.  Well, I hope it won't be like my one-time high diving board jump--that ended in a bellyflop. But just the little, jumping-off-the-kiddie-board thing which was ever so hard to do the first time--but once I"d worked up the courage and taken that first plunge, I loved it.

So here I am--launching my What's the Latest? newsletter:

Welcome to my World— An Invitation

To see the latest in my garden,



and a favorite video,

(This one the trailer for Jane Austen's deliciously satirical novella Love and Friendship which I can't wait to...
