Love on a Limb
Genres: Clean Romance, Christian Fiction
Written for: Adults
Matthew Grayken is young, successful, and dying, which is why he’s about to propose to a total stranger. He isn’t interested in love. He needs a companion and nurse to ease his last days, and a legal voice to enforce his wishes when he no longer can.
Lonely, compassionate nurse Mikaela Compton is intrigued by Matt Grayken’s tender request, but as their friendly marriage turns into love, she rejects the inevitability of Matt’s death and prays for a miracle instead.
Mikaela reignites Matt’s will to fight the disease, but he needs a miracle. Mikaela believes she knows where to find one, but it will require her to leave Matt at the hour of his greatest need and break the fundamental promise she made to him—to be his advocate and enforce his last wishes.
Mikaela faces an excruciating truth—that love brings exquisite joy, but it also requires the agonizing courage to go out on a limb.
Doesn’t this sound like an interesting book?
Q&A With Laurie Lewis
What is your favorite book that is not yours?
From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon. It’s a difficult, brilliant book.
Do you write in multiple genres? Which genre is your favorite to write?
I love the challenge of writing emotional but clean romance but I do love the research of historical fiction.
How young were you when you started writing?
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write. When I was a kid, I wrote episodes of my favorite TV shows, casting me playing opposite my favorite teen idols like Bobby Sherman and David Cassidy.
If you could meet any author, past or present, who would it be and why?
I’d love to sit down with Nicholas Sparks. Anyone with that many bestsellers would make a great mentor.
How long does it take you to write a book, and what was your fastest book to write?
I’m slow. I usually plan for two novels a year, but historical fiction novels take a full year at least because of the research. I’ve been working on a WWII novel for over a year because the research requires live interviews with the main character–an 88-year-old French WWII survivor who survived the Nazi invasion of her small town.
