Young Novelist Loses her Husband to a Heart Attack... Show Your Support

Sara Mills is a budding novelist who's just released her second novel. She is also the mother of three young children. The other day her husband, Keith, died of a heart attack.

Besides the overwhelming grief and confusion the family must go through in the coming days, weeks, months and years, there will undoubtedly be financial struggles.
Please take a moment and pray for this family... and then put yourself in Sara's shoes. You just lose your life partner, the man you love, and your young children have just lost their father. You don't have the time to grieve that you really need because the bills keep coming, the grass still needs mowing, the children tending.

It's a scary, horrible, feeling, no? What can you do? Like I said, pray. Nothing is more powerful than that Also, please consider buying one or both of Sara's novels, below. I read Miss Fortune, and it was fabulous. In a time when we feel helpless to help another human being, we don't have to throw our hands up in frustration, there are things we can do that will truly make a difference in this family's life
Thanks for your kindness.

MISS FORTUNE By Sara Mills / Moody Publishers
In 1947 Allie Fortune is the only female private investigator in New York City, but she's kept awake at night by a mystery of her own: her fianci disappeared in the war and no one knows if he's still alive. Until Allie finds out, she will have no peace.
When there's a knock on her office door at four in the morning, Allie suspects trouble as usual, and Mary Gordon is no exception. Mary claims someone is following her, that her apartment has been ransacked, and that she's been shot at, but she has no idea why any of this is happening. Allie takes the case, and in the process discovers an international mystery that puts her own life in danger.Meanwhile, the FBI is working the case as well, and she is partnered up with an attractive, single agent who would be perfect for her under other circumstances-if only she knew whether her fiancee was still alive.
MISS MATCH by Sara Mills / Moody Publishers
FBI agent Jack O'Connor receives a letter from Maggie, a woman he used to love, saying she's in trouble in Berlin. The FBI refuses to get involved, so Jack asks Allie Fortune to help him investigate. Allie and Jack pose as a missionary couple who want to bring orphans back to the United States. A child finds important documents that everyone in the city - Soviets and allies alike - want for themselves. Maggie refuses to tell Jack what the documents are, saying if things go wrong, they are better off not knowing. Through the course of the search, Allie's past is brought back to her, half a world away from home.

My heart aches for Sara and her children. My mom was widowed when I was four months old and my brother was two, so I understand some of this heartache. I will keep the Mills family in my prayers.

Judy said...

My sincerest condolences...and prayers. As another post says: there are no words.

May Sara find consolation in knowing that we are upholding her in our prayers. I shall look for her books, too. It's nice to know there is something else beyond prayer that we can do to help a bit.
