Pamela Meyers and Free Books!

Hannah’s life couldn’t be sweeter—a marriage proposal and law school. Then the Great War intrudes and everything sours.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of Zoe McCarthy's contemporary Christian romance, The Irresistible Woman in a Blue Dress, is:


Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's visit with novelist Pamela Meyers, author of the historical romance, Tranquility Point, Mantle Rock Publishing, May 2020.

Pam has written most of her life, beginning with her first diary at age eight. Her novels, set in and around her hometown of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, include Surprised by Love in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin; Safe Refuge, and Shelter Bay, Books One and Two in the Newport of the West Series.

Pam resides in northern Illinois with her two rescue cats. She’s an hour or so away from Lake Geneva where she can be found researching and nosing for new story ideas.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

During the course of one year, I lived in the Midwest and on both coasts of the U.S.

A very thorough-sounding exploration of the country! 

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Tranquility Point.

Despite the overhanging threat of the Great War involving the U.S., progressive Hannah Murphy is determined to make the summer of 1916 a memorable one before jumping into the demands of law school— her ticket to effecting change in how women are viewed. When she unexpectedly reacquaints with Ted Bauer, who is no longer the gangly boy who long ago had a crush on her, life becomes all the sweeter as they fall in love.

Everything sours when Ted enlists in the British Army in hopes of quelling the discrimination directed at his family because of their German roots. Unable to sit idlily by, waiting for her fiancé’s return, after the U.S. declares war on Germany, Hannah joins the Women’s Land Army and learns that there is more than one way to influence change.

What is it about Hannah that will make your readers care about her?

Like her mother and grandmother before her, Hannah Murphy is willing to buck the “system” and tackle challenges that up to now were relegated only to men, yet at the same time she is an attractive, loyal, and loving woman.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I’ve not read many novels of late because I’ve had four books under contract in four years, but I would recommend anything by Deborah Raney or Catherine West for Womens Fiction and Denise Hunter for Contemporary Romance. All three authors write captivating stories that depict strong women and how, despite their strength, they still lean on God to get them through the dark places.

What are you working on now?

Rose Harbor, Book 4 in my historical romance series. It’s homefront WWII.

Where else can readers find you online?

The Coronavirus Quarantine has changed my reading habits in that it is giving me more time to read, which I LOVE to do! Historical Christian fiction is my favorite genre to read. Tranquility Poing sounds wonderful and a book I would enjoy reading. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of this book!

I find that I'm just not as interested in books as I was prior to Corona. I tend to reread my tried and true books, rather than reading a lot of new ones.

Hi all! For those of you who haven't been able to concentrate on reading as much, I feel your pain. For me it's been the opposite. I can't focus enough to finish writing Rose Harbor, the fourth book in the series. So, I'm occupying my time reorganizing my office and reading craft books. I don't mean craft in the sense of crocheting or doing DIY projects, but writing. However, I sense my muse coming awake finally and soon I'll be back at it and I can't wait. It's about Grace Murphy, who pilots new bomber planes from their manufacturer to the air bases in the states to be used in the war. I've loved learning how even before current times women were doing jobs normally labeled as men's work.

I'm probably reading more during lockdown than usual. I always listen to audiobooks while I walk, and because I feel so cooped up here, I've been walking every morning, without fail. It's great to get out, breath the fresh air, and enjoy nature, even while having stories told to me to keep me energized. And then I've been getting books and ebooks read during occasional moments at home when there really isn't anything constructive for me to do or anyplace I can go. I seriously miss getting around, mingling with people. But at least we can keep our imaginations active through books.

I'm with you, Pam, regarding the writing. I'm not feeling quite as drawn to telling stories during the lockdown. But I have my moments, and I seize them!
