More About the Author

Born into poverty, Ruthy loves nothing more than pretending to be normal, hanging with her family, loving her day job of pseudo-torturing (if school work and baking cookies is considered torture, LOL!) small children by teaching them fun facts around a sticky kitchen table, and her dream job of writing sweet, evocative books that make people say "Aww..." and feel better about life in general.

She's a firm believer that everything looks good in pinstripes and Derek Jeter is about the cutest thing born to mankind on top of being an amazing baseball player. Oh, yum....

A strong Christian with a snarky sense of humor and a love for chocolate and fancy coffee drinks that make her guilt-o-meter spike into the stratosphere, Ruthy is grateful for her life, and marrying a gentle guy with a sense of humor and a truck-load of patience. She's the mother of six smart (read: KNOW-IT-ALL) kids, a seventh daughter of her heart and thirteen (yes... really... doesn't she look TOO YOUNG to have that many grandchildren? It must be a typo... she feverishly hunts for the strike-out key!!) grandchildren, all delightfully smart and good looking and probably Harvard bound. Of course. When they get out of pre-school, that is.

She loves chatting with readers through her website blog http://ruthloganherne.com and hanging with readers and writers in Seekerville... www.seekerville.blogspot.com where coffee is always hot, fresh and good!

Well, Ruth Logan Herne has done it again. Written a beautiful story of hope and healing with just enough grit and humor, (plus great animals) to keep the reader from getting anything else done in her house.

Gee, thanks Ruthy. It's a good thing I did some house-cleaning BEFORE I started reading.

Waiting Out the Storm is a novel of second chances and redefining expectations. Craig Macklin tends a grudge with as much expertise and he tends the animals in his clinic. For years, he's barely tolerated the Sloccums for a crime one of them committed against his family. When the youngest Sloccum, Sarah, brings in her dog for Craig's help, he responds as a professional, but inside he's seething. The fact she was a Sloccum and a shepherd put her on the lowest rung of likeable people, even if her dove eyes snagged his attention against his will. He wanted nothing to do with her or her sheep.

Until his life and Sarah's begin to intertwine.

When Sarah unexpectedly becomes the guardian for her nieces and nephew, and the truth of the past surfaces, Craig begins to realize his mom is right about those nasty assumptions.

But can Sarah's heart open up to a man with a past like his? Can she forgive him for his longstanding resentment toward her for a crime her half-brother committed? And when a storm sweeps through Sarah's farm and leaves her wounded, will the scars from her past heal as beautifully as the ones on her face?

Waiting Out the Storm is a fantastic second book for Ruth Logan Herne. Following her debut novel with Steeple Hill, Winter's End, Ruthy has a consistent flow of books in stores this year. The third book in this series, Made to Order Family comes out in September.

WAITING OUT THE STORM is Ruth Logan Herne's second book and it is just as wonderful as the first. I couldn't put it down. her vivid descriptions make the North Country come alive. Her characters are unforgettable. I love how she brings human emotion and faith together to make a compelling story. Her writing is excellent and the book difficult to put down. I look forward to her next book which is coming this month. Hooray.

I know it was a good book when I catch myself with a silly grin on my face as a close the book.

I loved "Waiting out the Storm".

The hero with the soft heart and the thick head.

The courageous, prickly heroine who's been hurt so often she's afraid to risk her heart.

Absolutely perfectly done. I cared so much about these two. I can't wait for the next book from Herne.

Personal favorite line..."Who would take care of the sheep?"

Very funny.

The book is captivating, once you start reading, you don't want it to end. You become so involved with the characters you feel a part of it and can't put the book down. Thanks to Logan-Herne for an enjoyable day of reading and reminding us that God does have a plan for our life. Well done!!
