I belong to ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) I found ACFW through a fellow writer, Nicole Baart just about a year ago. I’d just started my writing journey and didn’t know where to begin. She led me to ACFW. Since then, I’ve connected with so many writers. It’s a little family.
So, when Sara Mills’ story came up, I had to share.
Sara’s husband died suddenly of a massive heart attack just a couple weeks ago. He was forty years old.
Yep, you read right.
He left behind young children and his wife, Sara. I hope you click over to Cara’s blog because she posted an interview with Sara.
I never personally met Sara. But, like I said, ACFW is a little family, and I feel like my heart has been ripped out as well. So, if you pray, pray for her and her family through this tough time.
Miss Fortune: By Sara Mills / Moody Publishers
In 1947 Allie Fortune is the only female private investigator in New York City, but she’s kept awake at night by a mystery of her own: her fiancé disappeared in the war and no one knows if he’s still alive. Until Allie finds out, she will have no peace. When there’s a knock on her office door at four in the morning, Allie suspects trouble as usual, and Mary Gordon is no exception. Mary claims someone is following her, that her apartment has been ransacked, and that she’s been shot at, but she has no idea why any of this is happening. Allie takes the case, and in the process discovers an international mystery that puts her own life in danger.
Meanwhile, the FBI is working the case as well, and she is partnered up with an attractive, single agent who would be perfect for her under other circumstances-if only she knew whether her fianci was still alive.
Miss Match: By Sara Mills / Moody Publishers
FBI agent Jack O’Connor receives a letter from Maggie, a woman he used to love, saying she’s in trouble in Berlin. The FBI refuses to get involved, so Jack asks Allie Fortune to help him investigate. Allie and Jack pose as a missionary couple who want to bring orphans back to the United States.
A child finds important documents that everyone in the city – Soviets and allies alike – want for themselves. Maggie refuses to tell Jack what the documents are, saying if things go wrong, they are better off not knowing. Through the course of the search, Allie’s past is brought back to her, half a world away from home
Bless you, Sara. We’re prayin’ for ya!
