About the author:
Florence Osmund grew up in an old Victorian home in Illinois, complete with a coach house-the same house she used as inspiration for her first two books. Following a satisfying career working in large corporations, she retired to write novels. "I garner inspiration for my books by observing and listening to ordinary people," she says. "Then I let my imagination dig deeper until a higher concept is reached." Osmund currently resides in downtown Chicago on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan.

The Coach House
2012 BRAG Medallion honoree!
When Marie discovers the extent of her husband’s involvement in 1940s Chicago underground activities, she gives up what had appeared to be the perfect life—a good job, a loving husband, and the promise of starting a family. In her pursuit of a new life, fate draws her to Kansas where she finds refuge in a coach house apartment tucked away behind a three-story Victorian home in the quaint town of Atchison—an ideal place to start over, away from big city life and Richard.
But Richard isn’t about to let her go easily, and his convincing attempts to coerce her into believing that she is safer with him in his world than on her own cause Marie to second-guess her own convictions more than once.
Scared, confused, and at the brink of deciding what to do in order to find peace in her life, Marie discovers the identity of her real father and his surprising heritage—changing her life more than Richard ever could.
