“Unique, compelling.” –RT Book Reviews
International bestselling author Fern Michaels follows the transformation of a heartbroken young girl into a proud, sophisticated woman on the verge of a magnificent destiny. . .
Six years ago, Jory Ryan fled Philadelphia after a brief, tragic marriage to wealthy Ross Landers. Now Jory has come home to make peace with the past. But the future invites trouble when Jory falls precipitously for Ross’s best friend–and becomes entangled with the Landers family and the business she fled. Suddenly Jory finds herself at the helm of an empire, confronted with changes and choices she never dreamed possible, and ready to meet a new life ripe with the promise of lasting love.

I’ve been telling stories and scribbling for 37 years. I hope I can continue for another 37 years. It wasn’t easy during some of those years. As I said, I had to persevere. My old Polish grandmother said something to me when I was little that I never forgot. She said when God is good to you, you have to give back. For a while I didn’t know how to do that. When I finally figured it out I set up The Fern Michaels® Foundation. The foundation allows me to grant four year scholarships to needy, deserving students. I then went a step further and opened pre-school and day care centers with affordable rates for single moms who are having a hard time of it. Doing Fern Michaels ® allows me to do this and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t thank God for being so good to me. I don’t know what I’m the most proud of, the books I write, the scholarships, the pre-schools or the fact that I put my kids through college on my own with no help from anyone. Probably the latter because when all else is said and done, the only thing that matters is family.
Is Fern Michaels® a great writer. No. She is however, one hell of a story teller. When people ask me what I do, I say, “I scribble and tell stories.” It’s a great way to make a living. The Dutch have a saying, ‘If you can’t whistle on your way to work, you don’t belong in that job.’ I whistle all day long.
