Circle Of Friends Series

(Coming Soon from Hillenglade Publishing House)

A Fall Together – Book One

Meet Lauren, Irene, Eleanor, Pam, Tonya, Stephaine, and Suz. Friendship has been called a well-worn path between two homes. But for these seven women, it’s a divinely routed roadmap to a small Southern town, where hearts intersect and will never again uncross, come what may. Real life, with its greatest hurts and grandest dreams, is the basis for their stories as told in A Fall Together, the first book in a new fiction series from actress Jennifer O`Neill. Varied in age, ethnicity, background, and economic status, these characters are united by their spiritual crossroads and the determination to face their personal issues with brave hope. In this opening season, they will laugh, cry, and pray together over a breast cancer diagnosis, a troubled ex-husband, struggling teenage children, and other major matters of the heart. It`s a time of coming together, when so much around them is falling apart.

A Late Spring Frost – Book Three

But a cold snap can threaten the season’s greatest gifts. A Late Spring Frost, book three in the faith-centered CIRCLE OF FRIENDS… JUST OFF MAIN series, captures a defining time in the dramatically intersecting lives of the women who meet each week at Norro’s Diner in the small Southern town of Centennial. As the dogwood trees start to bud, a surprising romance rekindles for Lauren; a business dream blooms for long-suffering waitress Stephanie; and a new modeling career for Tonya sparks a move with her young son to New York City. But these joys are tempered by urgent struggles happening inside the circle of friends. Lauren’s sister Irene is about to lose all control over her pregnant teenage daughter, and Stephanie’s son, the assumed father of Irene’s grandchild walks a fine line between independence and reliance on God. As the clouds roll in, only faith can keep this circle unbroken through the storms of life.

This Fall, I read A Fall Together, and I can’t describe to you how it felt to finally get to read and enjoy it with the leaves falling and the sun shining.
–Esther Ripplinger
 
Interlacing the trials and tribulation of a close-knit group of Southern women allows O’Neill the opportunity to explore many current social situations such as teen pregnancy and divorce. Her characters encompass many different ages, religious denominations, ethnicities, and beliefs, creating a circle of friends that is a rich tapestry. A comforting read of friendship and faith.
