I am pleased to share with you that The Lydia Collection is complete! This is one collection, three different stories, and each can each be read in any order. If you enjoy Christian Historical Romance but don’t want to be stuck in one era or time period, then this series was created with you in mind.
The collection includes a Regency Romance with a French and English setting during the Napoleonic Era and the time period when the Prince Regent, George IV, reigned in his father’s stead, King George III (1811-1820). The story is based on one of the greatest Bible love stories of all time, the book of Ruth, with a theme of kindness and redemption.
Protecting Miss Jenna… (Also enrolled in Kindle Unlimited)
Jenna’s story is an Antebellum Era Romance (1812-1861) with lots of adventure from Louisville, Kentucky. The book features an anti-slavery theme with threads on improving self-esteem. The story is based on real life events from my own research. I visited a number of Kentucky plantations and even took a riverboat ride on the Ohio River as part of my research for this era.
Persecution & Providence… (Also enrolled in Kindle Unlimited)
The opening lines of this book are a parody of Pride & Prejudice. This is a Jane Austen-ish Pioneer Era Mail Order Bride story from the 1870’s with a theme on the depths of God’s love for us. The book includes a satirical character sketch. Readers will enjoy meeting Chelsea, the heroine of this adventurous story. Animal names in the story were suggested by other readers.
Lisa M. Prysock lives in the countryside of beautiful, rolling Kentucky just outside of the greater Louisville area near horse farms and four board fences with her husband of 19 years. She homeschools the two youngest of their five children (three grown). She and her husband live in an average, two story, Colonial style home they are continually updating– with a funny looking Heinz 57 dog; an adorably dainty lady cat; two teenagers; a vegetable garden; numerous flower beds; and a tree house undergoing a remodel. When not in teaching or writing mode, she is teaching herself to play the piano and violin. In regards to that, she laughs: “It’s a pretty painful process, but I’m truly enjoying it!”
Lisa loves all things old-fashioned and has adopted a slogan of “The Old-Fashioned Everything Girl.” A few of her interests and passions include doll houses, long dresses and hats, gardening, reading the Classics, butterflies, swimming, walking, working out, cooking, sewing, crochet, cross stitching, arts and crafts, scrapbooking, decorating, and drawing. Recently, her husband remodeled a room in their home with a picture window overlooking a valley which contains a creek and wooded area, transforming the space into a serene and sublime writing office/sewing room. “It’s a great source of peace and inspiration for me… and pure joy not to be writing from the busy kitchen amidst the household chaos on a laptop. Growing teenagers eating every five minutes makes for a constant stream of happenings!”
Lisa is an Amazon bestselling author of To Find a Duchess, an Inspirational Regency Romance; a Victorian Christian Romance Series which includes Hannah’s Garden: a Turn of the Century Love Story and Abigail’s Melody; and ‘The Lydia Collection,’ which includes The Redemption of Lady Georgiana (a Ruth love story of modern day Regency proportions), Protecting Miss Jenna (an Antebellum Era Christian Romance Adventure), and Persecution & Providence (a ‘Jane Austen-ish’ mail order bride story from the Pioneer Era).
