Miralee Ferrell


In October 2007 Kregel Publications published The Other Daughter with excellent reviews. The Romantic Times Review magazine gave it Four out of Four and a half stars, with a very strong review. Two different major motion picture studios are currently considering the book as a possible family movie, and my second book in the series (Past Shadows) is on my publishers desk being reviewed for a possible contract offer now.

In February of 2009, Love Finds You in Last Chance, California was published by Summerside Press

And Finding Jeena will release in April 2010 from Kregel Publications.

Miralee Ferrell lives in Washington with Allen, her husband of more than 37 years, ans has two grown children. She serves on staff at her local church ans is actively involved in ministry to women.


Against a backdrop of thievery and murder in Bridal Veil Falls, Oregon, a historic logging community, a schoolteacher is torn between the memories of a distant love and the man who could be her future.

Sixteen-year-old Margaret Garvey had given her heart to Nathaniel Cooper the night he disappeared from town. Four years later, just as she's giving love a second chance with Andrew, a handsome logger, Nathaniel suddenly returns. He steams back into Bridal Veil on a riverboat to work at the nearby sawmill to town with a devastating secret.

While grappling with the betrayal of those she trusted most, Margaret risks her reputation and position by harboring two troubled runaways who might be involved in the murder of a local man.

When disaster strikes the town and threatens the welfare of its citizens, Margaret will be faced with the most important choice of her life.

MY Comments:

Love Finds You in Bridal Veil Oregon is one in a series of love stories based on interesting names of towns such as Holiday, Florida or Humble,Texas-you get the picture. The time period of the Love Finds You books can be contemporary or Historical.

"Bridal Veil" takes place at the turn of the century in a tiny logging community with a signature waterfall- hence the name. Summerside Press has chosen some high quality stories and Bridal Veil is a stellar example of clear story telling and well drawn characters. Miralee Ferrell is a first rate story teller who knows how to create empathy in the portrayal of her main characters. I loved the strength of Margaret Garvey, a young woman whose father dies with a secret that changed the course of her life. The question is, was it for the best?

As a mother of college age daughters, I understand how a parent might interfere with the potential happiness of a child in order to save them from making a huge mistake.

This book had it all, great characters, suspense and romance. Most of all, the reminder of the reality of God, and his divine plan in every situation, was a comforting theme.

Hi Cheryl,

I so appreciated your lovely review of my new book set in Bridal Veil, Oregon. If you read the author notes at the end, you'll see that I live not too far away and that Art Gibbs, one of the strong secondary characters was actually my great-grandfather.

I'm glad you enjoyed my book and want to thank you for taking part in the tour.
