This is the Lexington County author’s first published novel, and she hopes to turn it into a series. She will be signing copies from 2 to 5 p.m. on Oct. 26 at The Book Dispensary.

She bridles at what she considers his self-righteousness — until tragedy from an unexpected source threatens his life and she prays for a miracle. The author is a former clinical counselor who lives in Columbia.
