about the author
When not chasing after her two joyful little boys, Neena Gaynor enjoys beekeeping, a good cup of coffee, and writing.
She’s spent much of the last decade traveling with her husband, Wade, a former professional baseball player. Throughout the 29 changes of address and the stresses of moving a young family, Neena has learned to embrace the peace that only comes from the steady accompaniment of Christ.
Favorite outdoor activity:
N: Beekeeping! They’re beautiful, amazing creatures.
B: I’ve been thinking about getting a hive. I have a couple of friends who keep bees and I use honey daily!
Favorite television series:
N: Downton Abbey made my husband and me fans of period dramas. BIG win 😉
B: That IS an accomplishment!
Favorite time or place to read:
N: If I can sneak coffee and settle into a chair before anyone else is awake, I love to read as the sunrises. Typically, I’m sitting in my children’s room with a kindle as they’re falling to sleep.
B: Ah yes, I have read many a chapter while waiting for little ones to nod off!
Favorite place to visit:
N: As an Appalachian native, the mountains just feel like home.
N: Who can choose? However, I was motivated to start blogging and then writing a novel because of Proverbs 16:24, “Kind words are like honey, good for the soul and healing to the body.”
B: Oh, I’m with you! 1 Thessalonians 5:11 inspired me to start blogging! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with us, Neena!

When Larkin Maybie buries her mother in the foothills of Appalachia, she is left all alone. Her only inheritance?

While Larkin thinks an escape to a cabin miles from anything familiar might be exactly what she needs, the quick answer to her problems only leaves her with more questions… Questions concerning her true identity.
As Larkin searches for her link to the Lewandowski Estate, she begins to accept the kindness of strangers on Presque Isle and the affection of professional baseball player, Ketch Devine. Charged with caring for the cabin’s honey bees and haunted by past choices, Larkin struggles to move forward in a new direction and is running out of time. With summer and baseball season coming to an end, she must decide: what is the value of true love?
