Lynn Austin's books have won eight Christy Awards, and her novel Hidden Places became a Hallmark movie starring Shirley Jones. Until recently, Lynn gardened near Chicago, but in Fall of 2013 she and her husband, Ken, vacationed in Michigan where Ken grew up, and where he and Lynn met and fell in love. "As we cycled along one of our favorite bicycle trails near the lakeshore," says Lynn, "we saw a 'For Sale by Owner' sign in front of a beautiful little house that I'd long admired. The owners were having an open house that day, and as soon as Lynn saw the custom-built library shelves in the great room, complete with a rolling library ladder, she fell in love. "The house had everything we needed, including a sandy beach on Lake Michigan where we could watch the sunset every evening." In a wonderful chain of events only God could have orchestrated, they made the house their home after Ken retired in May of 2014. More about Lynn at
