Hi! I’m Gertrude Miller. I live in Burrton Springs, Kansas. I’m a seamstress on the verge of opening a dress shop. Despite my mother’s protests, I’m trying to stand on my own and prove I have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. I’m determined to not let anything stand in my way in order for that to happen.

- I’m hardworking.
RH: Tell us about your childhood.
GM: I’m an only child. I’ve lived my entire life in Burrton Springs, Kansas. My mother has always made me feel like I’m not good enough. She’s been known to flaunt me in front of potential suitors, listing all of my positive qualities although she’s also quick to point out my faults too. I’ve lived in her shadow my entire life, so it’s taken a lot for me to decide to leave home and stand on my own.
RH: Will readers be able to follow your character in future books?
GM: Well, I was first introduced in Taming Julia. The author didn’t give me much exposure in that book, but in Protecting Annie, I became a close friend to the heroine. Wooing Gertrude shares my story. While I also make an occasional appearance in the final book in the series, currently titled Convincing Lou which isn’t out yet, you can learn the most about me in book three.
RH: What is your greatest regret?
GM: Sending for a mail-order husband. I’ll just leave it at that since you can find out all about the fiasco in Wooing Gertrude.
RH: If you could be an animal, which would you choose and why?
GM: Most definitely a guinea pig. I never heard about them until the book I’m featured in, and I’ve fallen in love with these furry creatures.
RH: What do you want readers to gain from your story?
GM: No matter what storms in life you’re facing, true peace can be found in Jesus Christ.
About the Book
Enoch Valentine has given up finding peace for his past mistakes. He throws everything he has into being the new part-time deputy in Burrton Springs, Kansas while maintaining the foreman position at a local horse ranch. But when trouble stirs on the ranch, he questions whether he’s the right man for either job.
Peace has been elusive for most of Gertrude Miller’s life, especially under the oppressiveness of an overbearing mother. She takes matters into her own hands and sends for a potential husband, while also opening her own dress shop. Gertrude hopes to build a future where she’ll find peace and happiness.
Will either of them ever be able to find peace?
