Love’s Delicate Blossom, an historical suspense
By Ada Brownell
Sequel to The Lady Fugitive and Peach Blossom Rancher
Edmund Pritchett III wants to marry Ritah Irene O’Casey, but she says wait. The beautiful redhead is trying to rescue Tulip, a 14-year-old orphan kidnapped by Henry Hunter to work in his brothel, and Ritah doesn’t have much time. She has a train ticket to go to college and hopes to fulfill her dreams.
Ritah wants to become a teacher who can help widows keep their children when tragedy strikes. She also wants to teach mothers how to prevent dangerous diseases and treat health problems, in an era when few have access to a doctor and too many children die. Instead, Ritah ends up fighting for the lives of injured soldiers in a World War I Army health clinic, and finds her own life threatened by an influenza pandemic.
But Ritah finds a teaching job in Kansas, and there Joe Nichols, a handsome farmer, edges his way into her heart. But Edmund Pritchett III isn’t giving up, and neither is Henry Hunter, who is still after Tulip and about to open his brothel.
Will Ritah be able to continue to fight for women and families, understand enduring love, decide on the man she loves, and defend herself and her students when Henry Hunter bursts into the school shooting a pistol?
COMMENT FROM A READER: Your book set a tone and world from your grandmother’s time, the historical elements are what readers read the genre for.

Scripture: For we did not follow cunningly

devised fables”  2 Peter 1:16

Everything about who we are, how we came to be, and why we are here, is settled by faith, yet there is evidence.

This book, written by a journalist who  interviewed people on several sides of the mystery, supplies evidence for faith—and reveals forgeries designed to destroy belief in God such as the Piltdown man, missing evolutionary links that DNA proved aren’t links, and a newer theory than Darwin’s, punctuated equilibrium.

The author taught her first class on the Bible and science at age 25. She also studied extensively on the reliability of scripture and evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus, and took a college course in propaganda. She witnessed the use of propaganda by secularists, especially in educational institutions.

The secular world attempts to destroy faith in God with spinning the truth and brainwashing. You’ll be surprised at this author’s deduction of it all.

Former medical reporter addresses Mysteries of eternal life in new book SWALLOWED BY LIFE: MYSTERIES OF DEATH, RESURRECTION AND THE ETERNAL

Do you believe what you think you do about the eternal? Is there really life after death? Can we live forever? Societies throughout the ages tried to determine truth, courts try to do it, and journalists such as the author of this book.  Ada Brownell draws on her experience as a medical writer presenting evidence we are more than a body, and also reaches into God’s Word to show the amazing fact we were made to live forever. This book, complete with Q&A for Bible study, is available in paperback or for Kindle.  For support groups, religion classes, the ill, those who fear the eternal or are curious about it. The book is featured in the June 2, 2013 “Reading for Spiritual Health” issue of The Pentecostal Evangel. Swallowed by Life sells for $9.98.

5-star review from Mary Ann: I didn't think I could ever read anything more gripping from Ada Brownell than Swallowed by Life. In this tract, her soul is laid bare for the reader. Each page is more intense than the last. You will find not a wasted paragraph, nor sentence, nor word. Feel Brownell pain, explore her literary mind, rejoice in her new beginning and ponder the paradox of life.In my mind, it's the best work she has ever penned and will move you from the first sentence to last. You'll truly be better for having taken the time to read it.

A Novel
Amazon Ada Brownell author page:

Enter an area where people are missing and radicals want to obliterate Christianity from the earth. After Joe Baker’s parents mysteriously disappear, he finds himself with a vicious man after him. Joe and an unusual gang team up to find his mom and dad. The gang is dedicated to preventing and solving crimes with ordinary harmless things such as noise, water, and a pet skunk instead of blades and bullets. Joe reads the Bible hoping to discover whether God will answer prayer and bring his parents home. In his dreams, Joe slips into the skin of Bible characters and what happened to them, happens to him—the peril and the victories. Yet, crying out in his sleep causes him to end up in a mental hospital’s juvenile unit. Will he escape or will he be harmed? Will he find his parents? Does God answer prayer?
