Facing East

With the unexpected death of her husband, Katherine White examines her heart hoping to find a few desires that she can build a new life upon. She leaves Chapel Hill, where she has lived her adult life, and moves back home, this time to the Gold Coast area of Chicago. Her determination and courage to pronounce her new life "holy," sets in motion a change in the lives of others. The setting of the story includes Seattle, where a mystery is solved, and Italy, the place Robert Davis has gone to reinvent himself. Facing Eastpays homageto a way of life where fireflies once flitted in the bushes and unafraid, children rode their bikes everywhere. Even the winter snows that dim the fairy lights along Michigan Avenue, are a part of a story that regardless of their age, people are looking for a new day that welcomes the changes and losses in their lives."

About the Author

Stepheny Forgue Houghtlin grew up in Evanston, IL. and was educated at the University of Kentucky. She lives with her husband in North Carolina where she gardens and writes. She has recently moved to a "Cottage for Two," where a blank canvas allows her to design a new garden; a little less ambitious this time, but nonetheless, a garden! Stepheny leads women's retreats and volunteers in community organizations. Facing East is her second novel. A personal story: When she was growing up her father asked her how she would become an author if she didn't learn to spell better. It was reported that she replied, "I'll hire a secretary." Many years later her oldest granddaughter was part of a school program called, 'Best Guess Spelling, ' which encouraged small children to write without fear while learning to spell. These precious pieces of communication were pure delight. Stepheny highly approves of this method. "In the mystery of things, I hope my Dad knows I did become a writer with a larger vocabulary than I can sometimes spell, but am saved by spellcheck." You can follow Stepheny on her blog, where she writes about gardening, her favorite authors and books, short personal essays. She takes people on blog tours to places like the Cotswolds, Charleston, and Chicago. Her Pinterest boards support her many interests and passions for English Gardening and beyond, and images related to both her novels.
