Addison Burke is a successful real estate agent who specializes in high-end closings and who enjoys an elite lifestyle not often afforded someone her age (27). But following a stroke and a recent fall, Addison is forced to hire a caregiver for her estranged mother, Lee Ann; a job Addison chooses not to take on, despite her financial freedom to do so. She hires an agency to fill the position, and to her surprise, they send a man for the job.

Logan has somehow managed to keep his act together despite a past that is slowly catching up with him. If he can make enough money over the next couple of months by tending to Lee Ann Burke, he should be able to flee the country before his world comes crashing down around him. But when Lee Ann’s beautiful daughter, Addison, begins to awaken feelings in him that he thought died long ago, he begins to question whether or not fleeing from the past is worth leaving Addison forever.

Will Addison let down her guard for love and renew her relationship with her mother? Can Logan face his past, come out unscathed, and act on his feelings for Addison? And why is Lee Ann selling everything she owns on EBay and Craig’s List?

God’s grace is what saves us

suicide-prevention-blog

Ephesians 2:8 says, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.” (NLT)

So, to extrapolate on that verse, we are saved by God’s grace—not by our own deeds. In the same way that our good works don’t save us, our bad ones—or sins—cannot keep us from salvation.

In my latest book, Her Brother’s Keeper, Charlotte’s brother took his own life. Charlotte travels to Pennsylvania to investigate his life and troubles there. Why did his friends not get him the help he needed for his depression? Charlotte has many conversations with characters that knew her brother, trying to decide for herself if his sin of taking a life keeps Ethan from Heaven.

Her Brother’s Keeper will be released on July 7, 2015.

About the Book

Charlotte Dolinsky is not above playing dress-up and telling a few lies to find out what happened to her only brother. In fact, that is exactly what she’s come to Lancaster County to do. Now, calling herself Mary and slipping on a kapp, Charlotte will lie her way into the confidence of anyone who knows why Ethan had to die. Unless she gets found out first.

But when Charlotte befriends a quiet Amish man named Isaac Miller, she begins to rethink her motives. And with a little help from a friend back home, Charlotte might find out that love comes packaged in ways she couldn’t have foreseen.

Isaac’s been caring for his cancer-stricken father and sympathizing with his frustrated mother for three difficult years. And that means he hasn’t been dating. He believes Hannah King is the woman for him, but Hannah is still grieving the loss of her fiancé, and Isaac has all he can handle on the farm. When Hannah’s family plays host to a woman named Mary, their new cousin shakes things up for all of them.

As Charlotte digs deeper into the mystery of Ethan’s death, she finds more than she’d bargained for in the community he once called home. But will she ever learn the truth? And what will the community—and her new family—do if they learn the truth about her?

 

Advance praise for Her Brother’s Keeper

“Readers will be hooked from the start to find out how this young woman will pull off her charade. An ideal book for someone new to Amish fiction.”

— Suzanne Woods Fisher, bestselling author of Anna’s Crossing

RT_Top_Pick

“This new series has caring characters […] the plot has enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. Wiseman has created a series in which the readers have a chance to peel back all the layers of the Amish secrets.”

RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 starred review and July 2015 Top Pick

“Wiseman’s new launch is edgier, taking on the tough issues of mental illness and suicide. Amish fiction fans seeking something a bit more thought provoking and challenging than the usual fare will find this series debut a solid choice.”

Library Journal, review

 

Ask Beth

Why did you write this book?

After writing two other Amish series and lots of Amish novellas, I wanted to create a new series that would be a bit edgier than what I’ve done in the past. Her Brother’s Keeper deals with serious subject matter, and I wanted to challenge the characters to search their hearts and beliefs when tragedy strikes. I strived to write a book that would be thought provoking, entertaining, and even a little controversial. As I’ve done with my other stories, I added in some fun moments to keep balance, but also wanted to show that the Amish folks aren’t so different than the rest of us. 🙂

 

What’s the take away?

I’m hoping that readers will be entertained, but also educated about the realities associated with suicide and mental illness. Will they recognize the signs that a loved one is in trouble and act on it? In the story, a character lives with regret for not doing more to help someone he sensed was reaching a point of no return.

 

Is there a spiritual message?

God forgives our sins the moment we ask Him to. There is nothing too big for Him to lift from our shoulders.
