“Someday the world shall learn the truth about Charles and Ellen, but the world shall not learn of them from me.”

In Victorian London 1851, Charles Dickens and his protégé Wilkie Collins partnered-up with Inspector Detective William Field of the newly formed Metropolitan Protectives to solve a brutal murder. The murder became the catalyst to the alliance forged between Charles Dickens and Ellen Ternan, the love of his life.

Based on real people and documented events, Palmer does a bang-up job of putting his readers in the thick of it. This was a romp through the underbelly of suspense, and a side of Dickens – through the speculation of Palmer, that is quite plausible.

If you like 19th Century England, Charles Dickens and the characters he writes about, you’ll like this book.

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
