The Saint Maggie Family Saga - historical fiction set in 1860s America
Author: Janet R Stafford
Can love and compassion get you in trouble? You bet it can!
Maggie is a widow who endeavors to follow her religion by loving those she meets. But she runs a boarding house set right on the town square of Blaineton, NJ and in the 1860s boarding houses are considered to be sketchy enterprises. It is no surprise then that the town looks askance at her, especially since Maggie has provided housing for an impoverished old Irishman, a writer whose career has failed, a struggling young lawyer, the town undertaker's apprentice, and the boarding house's cook Emily Johnson and her husband Nate. To make things more difficult, Maggie, who is white, has become close friends with Emily, who is black - yet another reason for her to be snubbed by the town's folk. It's a good thing they don't know that the Johnsons, Maggie, and Eli Smith (the free-thinking editor of the local newspaper) run an Underground Railroad station in her cellar.
The books follow Maggie's family from a traumatic incident and trial in their town, to threats to their lives because of their involvement in the Underground Railroad, followed by a sojourn in Gettysburg during and after the battle, to their return in 1864 to Blaineton, which is undergoing some new, uncomfortable, and worrisome changes.
Heart Soul & Rock'n'Roll - contemporary romance set in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ Author: Janet R Stafford
Lins Mitchell, assistant minister at the Church of the Epiphany, can't stop thinking about her college days fronting a rock band and "wants to rock out one more time before I die." She loves the church she serves, but is feeling itchy. To help Lins get clarity in the midst of her mid-life crisis, friend Patti takes her on vacation to the Jersey Shore. It is there that Lins meets Neil Gardner, leader of a bar band called the Grim Reapers. The chemistry between them is obvious, but Neil is going nowhere fast. A divorced dad who does not have custody of his daughter, he barely makes a living by managing a music store and living upstairs in its efficiency apartment. He's also an outspoken agnostic. And then there's his sister, whom he recently fired from the Grim Reapers and who has big issues. Given all that, will love prevail for Lins and Neil?
