Glimpse of Splendor
Having forgiven her father and tentatively embraced her own worth, Rachel D’evereau ends her first year at Belle St. Marie. She plans to lead a quiet life endeavoring to educate the poor children on her family’s ancestral plantation.
On the other side of the world, a man has a different plan for Rachel.
Forever changed by a single bullet, international journalist Mark Goodman redefines success: Live— Walk again— Return home to Louisiana to claim his first and only love, Rachel D’Evereau.
Finally healed of his injury, Mark plans a surprise visit home to claim his beloved. The timing is perfect.
Or so Mark thinks.
Upon his arrival, he encounters obstacles he never expected. A political race endangers his family’s longstanding honor and weakens his appeal to Rachel. Rachelʼs dysfunctional family continues to undermine her sense of worth. She is detached from God and so desperate to find peace she is contemplating marrying Louis Simone, a wealthy suitor who offers her a life of ease.
Has Mark arrived in time? Will Rachel embrace the true basis of her worth and be freed to love again?
Set against the backdrop of Louisiana’s intriguing 20th century plantation culture, Glimpse of Splendor engulfs the reader in the sustained wind of steadfast love–both human and divine, the cleansing breeze of forgiveness, and the roar of Louisiana politics.
