Struggling to make sense of life and support her family, Mo learns to rely on her faith. If she lets go of her bitterness, she might allow Joe back into her life . . . and her heart.


Excerpt from Book 

A cracking noise echoed through the house. Mo turned. Fire now churned on the upper stair, moving down like a fiery waterfall . . . until it stopped. Halfway down the stairs was a black, cavernous gap. Loud clattering followed as unseen timbers fell.
“We’ll have to jump to make it to the front door,” Dad said. That’s when Mo realized the midsection of the stairs had burned away, cracked and crumbled. “You two first!” He placed one hand on Mo’s shoulder and the other on Nathan’s.
The flames on the lower railing flared an angry orange.
Mo wiped her eyes with her nightshirt. She stared at the hole in the middle of the staircase, wondering if she could make it.
“Four steps, then jump,” yelled Dad.
“One—” The flames on the first step licked up toward the bottom of Mo’s flannel pants.
“Two—” Nathan grabbed her hand in a crushing grip. “Three . . . four.”
They jumped.

Christmas at Haven


Gwen Anderton is looking forward to a peaceful Christmas with her husband Edward in their beautiful home in Wales. A bed and breakfast, Haven is usually closed for the holidays, but Gwen makes an exception when her openly hostile stepson plans a visit. Additional guests, she hopes, will make things bearable.

Justin Michaelson is delighted to return to Haven, and to bring his quirky and feisty fiancĂ©e Myrtle, but his doubts over whether he should marry her are exacerbated when she takes exception to Gwen’s LDS faith.

Fading Hollywood star Jacy Grayson is filming a movie in the rugged Welsh mountains. Desperately clinging to her former fame and glory, she almost fails to recognise the love of the man who has been with her through good times and bad.

Also among the visitors are Alan and Judy Fuller, who are trying to escape the seasonal reminders of their greatest sorrow—their inability to have children. As always Gwen longs to help, but their heartache is one she shares.

In this atmosphere of uncertainty, sparks fly as the guests are trapped at Haven by the snow. It takes all the magic of Christmas and the faith and love of their remarkable hostess to restore the light and joy the guests long for, even as she comes to realise this Christmas at Haven may be her last.

Escape to Haven




Gwen and Edward Anderton’s bed and breakfast in the beautiful hills of Wales is a vacation spot, a hiding place, a refuge. For each guest, Haven is something different, tied to very individual reasons for being there. The current guests are no exception.

Belinda Hunt and her young son have fled to Haven to escape their past. The one thing Bel is sure of is that her angry, abusive husband will be on her trail—and very soon.

Brian McNaught takes his meals in his room, rebuffs all overtures of friendship, and disappears into the hills each day. He is fighting a personal battle, and Gwen struggles to reach out to him.

Edward’s daughter, Angela, has brought to Haven both her young family and her anger and bitterness towards her father’s new wife. As Gwen tries to reach out to Angela in love, she finds her cherished LDS faith is a particular stumbling block.

Then there are the handsome and bright young Irishmen, Steven and Danny, who have come to Wales for some outdoor adventure. The journey awaiting them, however, is more than they bargained for.

Escape to Haven is an exciting and thoroughly satisfying novel about a special place where dreams are renewed, peace is discovered, and lives are changed.

Haven



As a young woman, Gwen Evans turned her parents’ Victorian farmhouse in North Wales into a bed and breakfast. Here she lives quietly, creating a restful retreat for visitors, sharing her simple LDS faith with them, and touching their lives in lasting ways. In this isolated corner of Wales, guests find tranquility in the stillness of the lake and the majestic, rugged mountains dotted with sheep.

Peace is certainly what Alison Melton is searching for. This brief family holiday in Wales is her desperate attempt to renew the bond she and her husband once shared. Megan and her sister Charlotte come to Haven searching for a vital link in their family history, but the comfortable and secure lives they have known in Utah are threatening to dissolve.

Australian-born Oscar and his two British cousins have come to Haven at the insistence of their grandmother, who hopes to reconcile her divided family. Then there’s Edward Anderton, a widower who has returned to Haven repeatedly over the years, drawn to Gwen’s compassion and cheer. But will he face an insurmountable barrier in her determination to only marry a man who shares her faith?

Author Anna Jones Buttimore has drawn on the beauty and wonder of Wales to create an exquisite and tender novel about one woman’s ability to reach out to others, and the gifts of love she receives in return.

The Accidental Goodbye


When an exciting stranger named Brooker Rose arrives in Mercur, Utah, in 1902, he fiddles his way into Cecily McKinsey’s heart. But townspeople start to suspect him as he discovers gold in an abandoned mine whose owner is missing. Tongues begin wagging, not only against Brooker, but about others—even Cecily’s father. The dark rumors that creep into the model community so severely damage its spirit that one is not surprised at the eruption of violence at a card game, or the threat of hanging. And when a grease fire in a restaurant spreads rapidly through the town, residents quickly don as many hats and clothes as they can and swarm up the hill to take the train to safety.

Cecily, who sometimes explores her feelings about life through her imagination, tries to make sense of her world that seems to be plummeting toward disaster. As she leaves Mercur, which she lovingly refers to as Sweet Pie, she searches for some sign of redemption. Is the fire really an accident after all? And will she find the love she is longing for?

The Reformation of Lady Elinor


The Protestant Reformation has brought turmoil to England, as well as to the life of Lady Elinor Green Marbury. Oswyn Pygott, a commissioner for the king, desires to marry her. With the backing of King Henry VIII, Oswyn enlists Elinor to spy on Garrett Bloxham, a wealthy merchant and former Catholic priest. Bloxham is suspected of a capital crime—smuggling William Tyndale’s illegal English Bibles into the country.

Accepting the spying mission because of her devotion to the Church of Rome, Elinor is thrust into a world of reformist thinking. She believes a pilgrimage to Rome, to pray over the bones of St. Peter and St. Paul—and to catch a glimpse of the pope—will bring the miraculous healing of her blind daughter, Margery. Garrett Bloxham takes Elinor on the pilgrimage, and sparks fly between them.


This story features a vivid mixture of fictional characters and real ones such as King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall, and Pope Paul III. A jousting tournament, a hawking expedition, and a sword fight spice up the action. Amid all this, a romance blossoms between Elinor and Garrett. But only time will tell if they can overcome their differences and pursue a future together.
