Book Description

Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it.

Travis Holt's life is steadily pulling him under, and he's fighting it. He's running his family's construction company, trying to save his addict brother from self-destruction, and dealing with the constant reminder of his personal failures, including the one that shattered his family. When a woman with a mythical name and a soul-warming smile suddenly brightens his world, his need for her wars with his fear of adding her to the list of loved ones he's hurt. 

Andromeda Miller has escaped Phoenix and come to Utah to sort out the mess her life has become. She needs a new start: new home, new job, new friends. When she meets a good man whose touch she craves, she fights the desire to include him in the new life she's creating. His personal demons hit too close to home and may doom her to the same kind of consuming pain that destroyed her father.

Will these two damaged souls find refuge, or be swept away by their heartaches?

Finding Refuge is approx. 60,000 words.

About the Author

She still listens, plays matchmaker, and scribbles the resulting stories. Lucy has lived all over the United States, but calls Utah home. She lives with her husband, five children, and a pet menagerie that once included nine different species. She loves horses, fixing broken things, Doctor Who and tending the urban forest she planted in her front yard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing June 17, 2012
By Allie
Format:Kindle Edition
I love losing myself in mindless chick-lit, but every once in a while, I need something with substance. Something real. Lucy's books, both Mending Fences, and this new story fit the bill very nicely.

The two leads both dealt with addiction within their families, and even though the situations are different, Andri knows exactly how to help Travis see how to help himself before he loses his grip completely. Nothing is pain-free for either of them, but reading about how they overcome adversities together is what makes this book both real - and joyful.

I tore through it in one sitting, which isn't unusual for me, but in this case, it was necessary. I even shed a few tears.

I identified personally with the issues in Mending Fences, but while I had no experience with the trials in Finding Refuge, I still felt as though I could bond with the main characters.

I found myself thinking about how nice it would be to hear more from Rachel and/or Ian, and what a great treat it was to see that a story about Rachel is in the works! I can't wait to read it.

I'm almost sorry I read this so quickly - it just means I'll have to wait longer to hear more from Lucy Francis. Thank you Lucy, for gifting me this book - but I would have purchased it in any case. Well worth reading - I urge anyone who wants to read something heart-wrenching and just plain real to give both of Ms. Francis' books a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it possible? June 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Yep! Lucy Francis' newest book Finding Refuge (Heart's Redemption) is even better than her first! Like Mending Fences, this book has deeply rich and believable characters, a great story, and a fine romance. It's the perfect combination for great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding Refuge July 29, 2012
By Lynda
Format:Kindle Edition
If you want an engaging read with believable characters, then you need to get Lucy Francis' FINDING REFUGE. Lucy tackles the difficult issue of substance abuse with just the right mix of tenderness and tough love. Add in a heart-stopping hunk and spunky gal and you've got a romance for the ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read in public - you will cry! May 13, 2013
By M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book.
Their first meeting, their first date, even all the emotional baggage.
You will also get hot and blush because there are a few steamy hot scenes, not too graphic.
But the crying for me was the best, I have not cried for a book in a while.
This book really had it all. Friendship, family and love.

More About the Author

Hi, I'm Lucy, and I write romances. Why? Because there's nothing quite as fun and satisfying as creating two people who are perfect for each other, dropping them into each other's lives, and watching them fall in love.

I've lived all across the United States, from New York to California, but Utah, with its incredibly varied terrain and vast stretches of gorgeous wild country, is home. I live with my hero, our five children, and a pet menagerie. I love horses, fixing broken things, Doctor Who and tending the urban forest I planted in my yard.
