Meant for Me: The Carlyle Women

Born at Carlyle Place, the plantation her family has held for over two hundred years, Chloe Kimball was raised to be the perfect Southern lady. Still, she resists being the prize that her parents—an ambitious society maven and an equally ambitious politician—war to control. Surprising even herself, she breaks free. America has just entered the First World War and Chloe learns how to make her own way in 1917 New York City--a place nothing like home.


Soon Chloe is swept up in the heady tides of change in the young 20th century. The NAACP moves forward in the midst of race riots, women’s fight to gain the vote is at its peak. Chloe becomes the independent woman she never thought possible. But then the unexpected forces her to return home. Yet even in the South, the 1920’s are roaring with flappers, speak-easies and the Charleston, and for a time Chloe loses her way--a reluctant member of the “Lost Generation” in postwar America. 


She loved one man and lost him and now is pursued by another but will she ever be able to connect with the one she hopes could help her make sense of her life? As she recalls the woman she once was, she strives to become the woman she wants to be. Will she succeed?


The Carlyle Women-four generations, 

each facing the challenges of her time 

and each harboring her own painful secret~

And can’t a woman change her mind?

Small town Steadfast, Wisconsin, has spent the last six years raising funds to help a medical student stay in med school. In return, the student contracted to practice medicine in the local clinic for the next six years. Kirsi Royston is that doctor and now she must tell the town she is leaving at summer’s end. Family responsibilities demand she return to California. She promises she’ll find a replacement and all will be well. Doug Erickson, M. D. doubts that.

Kirsi is a dedicated doctor and a dutiful child. Her counterpart, known as Dr. Doug, is the same. His father died young and his 80-something grandfather deserves to retire. In the midst of their conflict over Kirsi wanting to break the contract comes the unthinkable. Meth is creeping into the county, poisoning students at the local high school. And the local eccentric, a woman who has bullied the town for years, finds herself needing help. Kirsi wants to provide that—another reason for the townspeople to grumble.

But all is overshadowed by events. A teen nearly dies and then vanishes from the hospital. An anonymous dead body turns up. Summer’s End is the story of two very good people, trying to please everyone but themselves. In the midst of a dangerous new situation in town, will they take a moment to discover what God wants for them? And for the town? Will they finally believe that they too have a right to fall in love?

Welcome to Steadfast, WI, a small town whose people and mysteries you may never forget.
