April A-Z S is for Single


S is for Single and discovering that living your life on a Rent to Own basis isn't the way it should be.  

Renting to Own, by Linda Rettstatt, is one of the books you could win by entering the giveaway here at Charlene Blogs.


At nineteen, Lily Champion became a single mother.  Having lost her own mother twelve years earlier and watching her father disappear into a gin bottle, Lily vows that her daughter will never know the fear and uncertainty Lily has known.  With the help of her teacher and friend, Helen Shaw, Lily secures a decent job in a small central Ohio town and signs a lease on a house that she is renting to own.  Life is taking a positive turn.  But Lily has learned that complacency opens the door for disaster, and her guard is always up.  She learns she could lose the house she loves and is terrified when confronted by the father of her daughter-a man who has never seen his child.  As she struggles to determine the best choices for herself and her daughter, Lily realizes that she has lived her life on a rent-to-own basis, as well, and now it's time to take ownership.  Falling love, however, was not part of her plan.

About the Author:

Linda Rettstatt was born in Brownsville, Pennsylvania and worked for her hometown newspaper following graduation from high school.  She began her writing career reviewing community theater productions (a task no one else on the news staff wanted.)  Linda writes women's fiction and contemporary romance, and her background as a psychotherapist serves her in digging deeply into the emotional and psychological depths of her characters.  

She currently resides in Southaven, Mississippi where she is allowed to share an apartment with her cat, Binky (as long as she continues to bring home the Fancy Feast).
