Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Long winters provide the perfect backdrop for reading, and there will be many books under the Christmas tree. For lovers of period fiction and an eye for mysteries, a new trilogy by a local author might be a perfect fit.

Author Grace Richardson — a pseudonym — does not want you to know who she is. “After the trilogy was complete, I decided to use a pen name because I wanted to publish them in anonymity. I want people to read and enjoy them without thought as to who wrote them,” she said.

Raising a family with strong Christian values, Richardson knows it is hard to find books and entertainment that are not full of violence, sex and sensationalism to make money. As a voracious reader herself, Richardson wanted to share her story with other discerning book-lovers. All the book reveals about the author is that she lives in Somerset with her family.

The trilogy begins with “The Journal.”

“The story is about a modern woman who is given the diary of a young woman who lived in 1880. The books go back and forth between the modern woman’s life and the journal she is reading,” Richardson said.

The series continues with “Blessings” and “Legacy,” also available now.

Published by Westbow Press, The Journal’s synopsis offers, “Caroline Porter was a beautiful young woman who lived in an average town during the early 1880s. Her life, on the other hand, was anything but ordinary. Over one hundred years later, Kathleen Robertson is a successful bank executive whose life gets turned upside down when a handsome stranger gives her Caroline’s antique journal to read.

“From the first page, the journal comes alive as Kathleen finds herself enraptured with the details of Caroline Porter’s life. She reads about Caroline’s courtship with a cold-hearted man; the strong, undeniable pull she feels toward his younger brother; and her unintentional involvement in a murder mystery. As she reads, Kathleen’s belief that unexpected miracles can happen when you follow the Lord’s leading is reaffirmed.
