Here’s a sneak peek (taken from the author’s blog) at the first book in the series, A Test of Gold.

In late 19th century New York City, Evangeline Lindenmayer, called Lindy, has been raised in the wealth and sheltered splendor of Fifth Avenue.

Her social-climbing mother, Vera, has big plans plans to marry Lindy to an English duke, trading the family’s nouveau riche cash to gain a royal title for the Lindenmayer family.

Lindy’s father, unaware that his daughter spends all her free time in the library, loans the use of it to Jack Winthrop, a middle-class seminary student.

When Lindy falls in love with Jack, she’ll need all the courage and determination she possesses to defy her battleaxe of a mother and find true love.

Have You Seen the Book Video for Shards of Light by Susan Miura?

Shards of Light is in the second in the Healer series by Susan Miura. It’s a story of a gifted teen with the ability to heal others who discovers a dark secret at the convent where she’s been sent to learn more about her gift.

“With its different characters and their special focuses and its gentle exploration of a young woman’s life in flux, Shards of Light is a beautifully evocative story that stands well alone while enhancing a series. It invites readers to reflect long after Shilo’s journey through faith and secrets comes to an end.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
