A Historical Novel of Enduring Romance
Book II in The Bennett Vignettes
The Bennett Vignettes continue. The year is 1912, and the term
"progress" is insufficient to describe what is happening in the
world. The realms of technology and finance are ever advancing
with man's knowledge and ingenuity. Progress is not appropriate
terminology, however, for what is happening to the world's
moral and spiritual condition.
A.J. Bennett is a young entrepreneur. The financial
industrialists of Baltimore have begun to see A.J. as being
synonymous with leadership, industrialism, and capitalism.
But A.J. has troubles of her own. As a young woman in a man's
world, she is fast becoming callous to the things that truly
matter in life--to love, friendship, and God.
Follow the story of Abigail Jayne Bennett and the rest of the
Bennetts' friends and family as they learn the vital importance
of Biblical priorities:
faith, family, and forgiveness.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
As with No Accident, Book I
of The Bennett Vignettes, it is my
heart's desire to share with as many people as I can that GOD's
WORD has the answers to life's trials. I honestly cannot tell
where the inspiration for Our Refuge came from. In fact, the
main subject dealt with is offensive, as all sin is to God. But
the manner in which the subject is dealt with and the mercy and
forgiveness--both human and divine--with which the sin is
ultimately responded to make Our Refuge an unparalleled
blessing in the literary genre.
The hymn of the faith,
His Eye is on the Sparrow
is sung at a very critical point in the story.

Our Refuge is an Inspirational, Historical Romance set
primarily in Baltimore, Maryland (also some of the storyline takes
place in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and some in Monck's Corner, South Carolina)
in the early 1900's. My goal was to
write such a book with as much or more emphasis on the spiritual
condition of the characters as on their personal lives and
When I began writing The Bennett Vignettes,
my husband was active duty Navy on shore duty.
I chose Baltimore, Maryland as a "backdrop" because the last
submarine he was on was the USS MARYLAND (SSBN 738). But we
really hope that my writing can be successful
enough to supplement our income, allowing our children to
continue in Christian education.
