Where Love Abides

The smell of jasmine is in the air,
And I think of my precious grandchild,
Who lives in my heart forever,
Whose memory blows over me at will,
Like a warm summer’s breeze.
And I know not whence it comes
Or whither it goes.
But I suppose it goes
Where love abides.

In memory of . . .

Where Love Abides is an allegory about Susan's search for love. Meet Sorrow, Expectation, Comfort, Passion and all the other characters that Sorrow meets on her way to becoming Beloved and finding the joy we all seek. I have yet to find anyone who does not enjoy this story. It is a light read and once you start you will have a hard time putting it down.


Dear Lady, I had to write and tell you how your story, Where Love Abides, has touched my heart and soul. I was mesmerized, and I could not stop reading. My only sorrow was when it ended. What a beautiful, heavenly mind you have! In reading your story, it is clear that God has left His mark upon your mind and soul. I would encourage you to share what God has lovingly given to you. Expound on this and turn it into a book. It is too beautiful to remain unpublished. God Bless You!


I am a 38 year old male and I just finished reading your book Where Love Abides. When I came upon it in the book store, by accident, I read one paragraph at random and almost passed out right then. It took every ounce of energy not to burst into tears right there. That book is me. I m sure you have had many letters from people about the book. I ve never written to someone like this before, but I just had to thank you for writing something that has touched me in a way I will be unable to adequately explain. I m going though a lot of pain, confusion, etc. on my latest relationship failure and this book has inspired me to persevere.


This is by far the most life-changing book I've ever read. I felt as though I was walking along with Susan throughout the entire book; so much applied to my own life. It's not a book merely to grace your book shelf, but one to have by your bedside, or easy chair, to allow frequent reference and support. It's not an ordinary self-help book or parable, but one of extraordinary insight, embracing life and spirit. I'd recommend "Where Love Abides" to everyone—young and old—male or female, whether they are simply looking for more happiness, and fulfillment, or their despair is so great they feel a hole within their heart allowing their very life-force washing away. It is a must read. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
