About Loretta Livingstone
Loretta Livingstone is a British author, who lives with her husband in a beautiful area of the Chilterns. She has written fiction and poetry collections.
Her first foray into the world of fiction was her novelette, Where Angels Tread - a story about a young homeless girl. All proceeds from this book are donated to a charity for the homeless.
Loretta's most recently published book is Blossom on the Thorn - the third tale in her medieval timeslip series. Out of Time, her first novel, was shortlisted for the 2016 Historical Novel Society Indie Award.
She's hoping to be able to work on books 4, 5 and 6 in the series again soon, alhough health problems have meant taking a break for a while. She suffers from M.E. which means she can't work as fast as she would like, and she is also slowly recovering from suspected Covid-19, which although not severe, has caused additional problems to overcome. As a Christian, she is trusting God to bring her through this.
Loretta says of her work, "Above all, I want to leave my readers with smiles on their faces."

"I should have had nothing to do with those accursed Angevins. I should have run like hell in the opposite direction."
Giles de Soutenay can scarcely be blamed for his disappointment. Promised an heiress by Queen Eleanor, he is dismayed to discover that, although young and attractive, his bride has all the warmth of a stone effigy.
For the newly widowed Isabella, the reality of a new husband is no cause for celebration. She will do her duty but no more. She will give de Soutenay no reason to complain but he will not have her heart, for any belief in love and tenderness died during those brief years of her first marriage. However, she has reckoned without Giles' perseverance.
After the snows of winter, spring brings hope, until the arrival of a stranger threatens Giles and Isabella’s blossoming happiness. A stranger who might tear them apart before they have truly found each other. Only if Giles can learn patience and Isabella can learn trust can they hope to find lasting love.
This is book 3 in the Out of Time series although chronologically it is set earlier than book 2 and can be read as a standalone novel. Although this is part of a time travel series, this story is not time travel and only mentions it very briefly.
