The only thing worse than being a spinster is being a twice-jilted spinster. At twenty-five, Catherine Morgan is hardly an old maid, but she’s given up on marriage and instead manages the family’s general store in the small town of Revenge, Ohio. Bound by a promise to care for her three sisters until they marry, she’ll do anything it takes to keep them safe. However, the town’s sheriff has evidence that may stand in the way of her sister’s happiness and her own. Revenge can be stronger than love. Will a vow for vengeance arrest Catherine’s third chance for love?
Lisa Harris writes award-winning Christian fiction and nonfiction from her home in Mozambique, Africa, where she and her family serve as missionaries. She has published more than a dozen books across multiple genres including romance, suspense, and mystery.
And even more important than all her books and serving as a missionary–Lisa is one of my dearest friends. Ha! Seriously, I’ve known her since the beginning. When I joined ACFW (then ACRW) Lisa was one of my critique partners. We’ve been close friends since then, sharing prayer requests and personal struggles. It was at one of the ACFW conferences that Lisa and I brainstormed about doing a series together for Heartsong and voila, Cranberry Hearts was born. Hence, Lisa played an important role in ushering me into the elusive world of published authors.
1. What do you consider the most important reason you serve in Mozambique?
I’m here, because I know without any doubt that God has called our family to work here. There are days when I wonder why I’m here or I’m certain that life is better or would be easier on the other side of the fence, but then I have to stop–because He’s called me.
2. And there’s no better place to be than in God’s will. Tell us about the struggles of the people in Mozambique.
Life isn’t always easy here, and I’m reminded of it every time I walk down the street or drive through town. There is poverty, orphans, HIV/AIDs, malaria, as well as other sicknesses and a fairly low life expectancy. Another thing that strikes me is the spiritual darkness. . .and then the freedom and joy we see in those who are finding in Christ Jesus!
