Welcome friends and readers,
I'm happy to release my 8th novel, FATHER, which has a Pennsylvania country setting and unlike most of my other work, zero characters of Italian descent. The story revolves around a family's battle with cancer and their decision to utilize alternative medicine, energy, spirituality, and lifestyle changes to encourage healing. I dedicated the book to my father-in-law who passed away in 2000 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
In my last update I mentioned moving into my new home in Bucks County, PA. We are now officially Pennsylvania residents though we are still transitioning from New Jersey.
Here is my new backyard. I remember reading Oscar Hammerstein's biography where he mentioned writing Oklahoma looking out onto a Bucks County hayfield. I can surely understand why.
My absolute favorite room in the house is my kitchen. It's not quite finished yet but it is surely a place to house lots of family and food along with multiple cooks.
Here's another view looking out from behind my island. The finishing touches will be the backsplash and the rest of my equipment.
Our first fire in the new house. My brother Michael and sister-in-law Ellen joined us for the occasion in April.
The Rentschlers have a history of farming that led to our organic grassfed beef business in Port Allegany, PA, where my novel is set. For more cow photos drop into Steve's website
Here is a mother and newborn born earlier this month at the farm.
I hope to hear from you! Thank you to any readers who took the time to write reviews (and especially emails) about my books. I appreciate it more than you know. More reviews would help for sure, but your emails have been very encouraging.
As always, write to me and I will answer: Linda@larentschler.com
Enjoy the summer!
