Following over a year of work with story outlines, first drafts, numerous rewrites, editor reviews, book cover designs, manuscript formatting, production and distribution, my new novel is now ready to launch on March 9!

Here’s a brief summary of LIES WE NEVER SEE.

A South Carolina woman, struggling to endure the loss of her husband and financial ruin, finds an old journal from a distant grandmother who suffered a similar path of hardship and betrayal.

In this heart-wrenching story of historical fiction, mystery and suspense from Amazon Kindle #1 author, Michael Lindley, Hanna Walsh’s husband is found murdered in Charleston, South Carolina. His failed land deal leaves her family and finances in ruins. The FBI thinks she knows more than she’s letting on and a dangerous stranger thinks she’s hiding several million dollars he wants back.

An old letter and journal found in the attic of the family’s beach house on Pawley’s Island reveals her distant grandmother, who owned the same house as a young widow during the Civil War, suffered similar travails of emotional loss and financial hardship. Her grandmother’s story chronicles the tragic loss of her husband in a senseless battle fought weeks after the war had ended and a mysterious stranger who has returned to tell of her husband’s needless death. Hanna finds their journeys of redemption and recovery both depend on those they still hold close, but betrayal and deliverance come in many unexpected forms.

Michael Lindley’s new fourth novel continues his series of stories exploring challenged relationships and life struggles with parallel storylines set in both present day and compelling historical contexts. His first novel, THE SEASONS OF THE EMMALEE was twice an Amazon Kindle #1 for Historical Fiction, Mystery and Suspense.
