Remmie's life changed instantly. River Oaks, a lovely estate on the Chattahoochee River, became her home. Not only did the Remingtons provide for her, they loved her, and she loved them. She excelled at everything she did. Pursuing a medical career at age nineteen was difficult, but Remmie had her mind set to finish ahead of schedule, which she did.
Remmie was sure a busy career as a trauma surgeon would keep her mind off her past. Unfortunately, she lived with uncertainty and fear of failure. She was haunted by feelings of being abandoned. Why didnt her biological parents love her? How could people just abandon their child?
Although Remmie's desire to know who she is and where she came from takes her on a journey far from River Oaks, she remains true to herself and true to her God, but more than that, she learns what forgiveness truly is.
Through their stories, Julie Lawson Timmer explores the individual limits of human endurance and the power of relationships, and shows that sometimes loving someone means holding on, and sometimes it means letting go.

Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.

Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.
The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
