Boxed Set: The Coach House and Daughters by Florence Osmund
In THE COACH HOUSE newlyweds Marie and Richard Marchetti have the perfect life together in a quiet neighborhood of Chicago. Or at least it seems until Marie discovers his involvement in a corrupt underworld that compels her to run for her life. Fate draws her to Atchison, Kansas which she erroneously believes is a safe refuge and perfect place to start over. But Marie quickly learns that she has never been out of Richard’s purview, and while his threatening attempts to win her back cause angst and confusion in her life, it’s the discovery of her real father and his heritage that affect Marie’s life more than Richard ever could.
DAUGHTERS takes up with Marie preparing for the first visit with her father and his family. She worries about whether she will be accepted by them, how her life is about to change, and what she will learn about her own identity. A great deal happens during Marie’s visit, and in her search for peace and truth in her life, she quickly learns that disparate lives can converge and interact in profound and surprising ways.
Mary Crocco – “The Coach House is a superbly written book. It will leave the reader thinking about relationships, adversity, independence and growth.”
Rebecca's Reads—“Osmund has once again written a good book with a great message. She writes about a conflagratory time period and subject with grace, compassion, love, and understanding. Daughters is a must read for anyone who struggles with, or has struggled with, their own identity.”
About The Author...
After a successful career in the corporate world, I retired to write novels in the literary fiction genre. I like to craft stories that are character-based and challenge readers to survey their own values.
My only non-fiction book "How to Write, Publish, and Promote a Novel" is dedicated to helping new authors. Here I offer advice I wish I had received before I started writing my first book. I talk about—
• where to begin
• how to promote your book even before it’s written
• building an author platform
• how to spot a scam
• working with editors
I include topics that will help new authors hone their writing techniques such as—
• developing fully fledged characters
• using back story effectively
• creating dynamic scenes
• active versus passive voice
• the ‘show, don’t tell’ concept
• point of view
At the end of each chapter are included many links to other websites that will help authors become better at their craft.
I am a book reviewer/assessor for several organizations and currently live on a small, tranquil lake in northern Illinois where I continue to write.
