Unfinished: A Victorian Romance


Selected for Publication by Swoon Reads:  July 9, 2019.

1861.  Miss Lucinda Leavitt is shocked when she learns that the author of her favorite serialized novel, Mrs. Smith, has died before completing the story.  She sets out to discover who the mysterious author was and how she would have finished the novel.  Lucinda reluctantly asks for assistance from her father’s much younger business partner, Mr. David Randall. 
David is wealthy and successful, but overwhelmed by too much work.  He’s trying to prove something to his dead father and to himself.  He doesn’t have the time, nor interest, to find a deceased author, but Lucinda is not the type of person to take no for an answer.

Their search for the elusive Mrs. Smith will take Lucinda and David around the country and the truths they discover about themselves, and each other, are anything but fictional.
