They say write what you know. Mary C. Findley has poured her real life into her writing -- From the cover designs inspired by her lifelong art studies to the love of pets and country life that worm their way into her historicals. The never-say-die heroes in her twenty-some fiction works are inspired by her husband, a crazy smart man with whom she co-writes science and history-based nonfiction. These works were jump-started by a deep awareness of the dangers in our future if we don't understand ideological enemies rooted in the past. She's a strong believer in helping others and also has books about publishing advice and the need to have strong standards in reading and writing.
She has traveled internationally and around the lower 48 and Canada multiple times. Anecdotes from her small town life, college experiences, European, Canadian, and south-of-the border travels, as well as adventures as shotgun rider in a tractor trailer fill her contemporary works. She has also donned the cloak of alt-Victorian adventuress as Sophronia Belle Lyon, steampunk writer with her own League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (and ladies) from the great 1800s novelists. In all her works you will find faith, family, friendship and fulfilling stories. Do come have a look!

The best part of this story for me was the vast array of characters. I was particularly fond of Leah Master's brother, Randall, and liked his part in solving the mystery of the plot. Though I did not agree with all elements of the Christian Faith presented, overall it worked well with the story and didn't seem out of place. Setting was good. Overall, an enjoyable read for a few hours of my time.

Send a White Rose is a cleverly written love story of reconciliation and redemption. The author utilizes everyday relationships as examples of the various types of love Christ has for his children. The first example of love and redemption is displayed in the relationship between Aleathia and the judge. Aleathia is rejected by her parents but is reconciled when the judge pays for her. Her parents didn’t want her but her life is giving meaning by serving the community. She runs the orphanage and helps the judge. The judge needs her. She even saves his life after he is brutally attacked and left for dead. A second example of love, reconciliation and redemption is shown between the judge and his friends. The judge wants to give up and die after his attack but his friends refuse to let him and furthermore encourage him to live. Robert sings for him while he is in the hospital and Windwalker helps him to accept his life as it is at the moment. In return the judge reconciles Windwalker back to Christ and he too is able to accept his fate prior to his death. Finally the story ends with Leah and the judge preparing for marriage. The judge is reconciled to his original state of being. The story begins with the judge picking Leah up from the train station in hopes of marrying her. The story ends with him proposing marriage.
