Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A charming romance about the lives and loves of people in a small Tennessee town. In the tradition of Debbie Macomber. "Hey, ya'll. Dixie Ferguson here. I run Ferguson's Diner in Angel Ridge, Tennessee. Population three hundred forty-five. It's a picturesque town in the valley of the Little Tennessee River, established in 1785. In the early days, its first families--the McKays, the Wallaces, the Houstons, the Joneses, and, of course, the Craigs--staked their claims on hundreds of acres of the richest bottom land anyone had ever seen. After all the years I've spent behind the counter at Ferguson's, I could probably tell ya'll a story about near everyone in town. But we only have so much time, so I'll narrow it down to just two for now. This is a story about coming home. It's also a story about acceptin' folks for who they are. You could say it's a story about Josie Allen, a librarian, and Cole Craig, a handyman, but I say it's a story about finding love where you'd least expect to.". Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Only You by Deborah Grace-Staley Book One of the Angel Ridge Series Homespun Hearts
Hometown girl made good, Josie Allen, has returned to Angel Ridge after years away at school. All too soon, the new Dr. Allen finds that being the director of the town's prestigious library won't be easy. With the debt of her education hanging over her head in the form of her benefactor breathing down her neck, Josie barely has time to concentrate on the new computer system giving her almost as many problems. She definitely has no time for the distractions of a man from the wrong side of the Ridge-no matter how handsome he is.
Cole Craig, the town handyman, is a blue collar constant in the small town. For as long as anyone remembers, he and his family have worked hard and kept to their own kind, but things aren't always as they appear. Cole has a secret! When Josie comes back to town, Cole can't keep his mind on business or his eyes off the girl of his youthful dreams. Determined to win Josie over, Cole sets a course for romance-the old fashioned way.
Even with years of history and attraction forcing them together, social pressures and politics threaten to keep Josie and Cole apart. Can the guiding hands of the town's legendary angels and quirky residents keep love on track or will two hearts pay the price of prejudice?
Über den Autor: Born and raised in Kingsport, Tennessee-that's in the upper eastern tip of the state-Deborah Grace-Staley is the youngest of four children. Since there were not a lot of neighborhood children to play with and no siblings close in age, she learned to amuse herself by creating stories that played out in her head. For some reason, she never gave a thought to committing them to paper.
A painfully slow reader, Deborah decided if she was going to earn a college degree, her reading speed would have to improve. So the summer before she entered King College in Bristol, Tennessee, she went to her local library and checked out a variety of books. She fell in love with Harlequins. By the end of the summer, she was reading a book a day written by classic romance authors such as Anne Mather and Carole Mortimer.
After earning her degree, she tried out a couple of careers before she settled into being a paralegal. Meanwhile, she kept reading romance while her own stories kept spinning around in her head, but now were demanding to be written. With a degree in French, she had no idea how to write a novel. So, she took three novel writing courses at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and got started. Four years and one baby later, with one completed book in hand, she began submitting, joined Romance Writers of America and began attending conferences for romance writers.
Deborah never sold that first book she wrote, and it took nine years before her dream of being a published romance novelist became a reality. Still, she never doubted that it would happen when the time was right. "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1.
Today, Deborah has retired from the life of a paralegal and works in the Department of Disability Services at the University of Tennessee. Married to her college sweetheart for eighteen years, they make their home on five acres in Maryville, Tennessee in a circa 1867 farmhouse with gingerbread trim that has Angel's Wings. She has one son whom she loves to watch play baseball and basketball.
Now that her stories are out of her head and on paper, she's so thankful for the opportunity to share them with readers! She'd love to hear from you via e-mail at Deborah@deborahgrace-staley.com or via snail mail at P.O. Box 672, Vonore, Tennessee, 37885. Include an SASE and she'll send you a bookmark and autographed bookplate.
