This Place
by Carolyne Aarsen

It took Miriam Bristol many years to find rhythm and security in her life after bouncing between a loving foster home and a neglectful mother then dealing with a deceitful boyfriend. But this rhythm is interrupted when she unexpectedly becomes the guardian of her five-year-old orphaned niece who she barely knows. Miriam must move across the country to make hard decisions about Celia’s needs. The mistakes of Miriam’s past and the heritage of her mother make her feel she is unsuitable. Unfortunately Duncan, Celia’s other guardian, feels the same way. Celia is the same age as the daughter he lost and seeing her creates too many painful memories. But Duncan and Miriam are the only family members who can help this little girl. As they work together their attraction for each other grows and the possibility of a family with Celia lingers. However, can their changing relationship survive the secret that Miriam harbors? A secret that could send Miriam away from Duncan, Celia and This Place.



Carolyne Aarsen's Bio

Living a life of the writer at the intersection of No and where. Spending my days in front of a computer immersed in other worlds with people so real to me I feel that some day I will meet them. Keeping up with the Jones isn't an option. In our Dutch community there are precious few Jones so that makes life easier. I grew up in the city and now live in the country. It's a good life. Other than the swish of the dishwasher (a heavenly sound) and the occasional hum of the refrigerator, the click of my keyboard keys and the sound of my head banging against the desk when words won't obey, life here is pretty quiet. Just the way I like it.
