Making Waves

amazon barnes & noble Christianbook.com Goodreads
​Marguerite Westing is in a pickle. She’s been allowing Roger Gordon to court her for the lady three months even though she has no desire to spend any time with him. She’s afraid to tell him to go because he’s the man her mother has chosen for her yet when she’s with him he bores her to tears.

Marguerite has always been one to shirk propriety and make waves in their otherwise pristine existence – or so her mother would have one believe – but never so much as when she sails. It’s said to not be a place for women but she’ll do anything to be on board – even if she has to manipulate around her mother and skim on answers. That’s not really lying, is it?

She needs to make a choice but more than that Marguerite will learn some hard truths.

Hott Review:

What I liked: ​Making Waves is an interesting book. I enjoyed learning about sailing and felt that there is a great lesson found in these pages. I think my favorite character is a Trip. He’s solid a good man who’s still trying to overcome his painful upbringing. His personality and love really make this novel worth reading.
What I didn’t like: It was a bit slow and, while overall, I really enjoyed Making Waves overall, it wasn’t as funny as I’d expected.

A Note From Author Lorna Seilstad:

Lorna SeilstadFor as long as I can remember, I loved writing. I even dreamed in plots. I also grew up attending antique auctions nearly every weekend, so history was as much a part of my life as chores on our farm in Iowa, reading books, and playing with Barbies.

So, writing historical romances fit perfectly. Times may change, the style of clothes, the way we speak, but the common threads that unite us remain the same. Couples fall in love. Injustices happen. We fight for what we believe in. We struggle. We endure. We grow.

After graduating from York College in York, Nebraska with an A.A. and then receiving a B.S.Ed. from Lubbock Christian University, I met and married the love of my life, David. God had
written our love story, and I knew from the moment we met that he was the one. It was not love at first sight by any means, but I was so sure he was “it” that I wrote that I’d met the man I would marry in my diary. We pledged our hearts to one another two and half years later.

I taught high school English until my oldest child was born. After that I began my career as a professional wiper. I wiped noses, counter tops, tiny tushes, tears, and scraped knees.

Deciding that my children were now older and less in need of my constant supervision, I started pursuing my first love again –writing. After joining American Christian Fiction Writers, I found a wonderful critique group and began studying the craft of writing.

David and I have three children ages 18, 16, and 11. We also work in youth ministry and teach youth and adult Bible classes.

Thank you so much for stopping by, friend!
