About the Author.
Ruth Hartzler’s father was from generations of what people refer to as “Closed Open” or “Gospel Hall” Brethren. Ruth’s mother, a Southern Baptist, had years of struggle adapting to the cultural differences, and always cut her hair, which was a continual concern to Ruth’s father’s family. Ruth was raised strictly Brethren and from birth attended three meetings every Sunday at the Gospel Hall, the Wednesday night meetings, and the yearly “Conference,” until she left the Brethren at the age of twenty one. Ruth still has close friends in the Brethren, as well as the Amish, both groups descending from Anabaptists. Ruth’s family had electricity, but not television, radio, or magazines, and they had plain cars. Make up, bright or fashionable clothes, and hair cutting were not permitted for women. Women had to wear hats in meetings (what others would call church meetings) but not elsewhere. The word “church” was never used and there were no bishops or ministers. All baptized men were able to speak (preach, or give out a hymn) spontaneously at meetings. Musical instruments were forbidden, with the exception of the traditional pump organ which was allowed only if played in the home for hymn music. Even so, singing of hymns in accompaniment was forbidden.
Ruth Hartzler is a widow with one adult child and two grandchildren. She lives alone with her Yorkshire Terrier and two cats. She is a retired middle school teacher and enjoys quilting, reading, and writing.

Another Chance: A Christian Romance (A Series of Chances Book 1) by Christian Author – Diane Lil Adams

Anna Brown was nearly forty before she earned her college degree. When she has trouble finding a teaching position in St. Louis, she applies for a substitute’s position at Casey’s Institute, a juvenile detention center located in the Missouri Ozarks. Is it chance or God’s will when a spring snowstorm prevents her from driving home?
Dr. Michael Grant admits he made the wrong decision when he ignored the weather and took Anna to dinner. It’s the first of many misunderstandings, and Michael’s apologies aren’t enough to truly earn Anna’s forgiveness. Every time Anna gives the handsome administrator another chance, it seems he’ll prove he’s no different from any of the other men who have disappointed her.
Michael can’t help being intrigued by this tiny woman, whose behavior is so different than the ordinary. Though she admits she’s afraid of animals, he offers her a job overseeing an experimental pet therapy program. Ignoring his self-imposed rule against fraternizing with those who work at Casey’s, he finds himself seeking every opportunity to get to know her better.
Overcoming a fear of dogs isn’t Anna’s only challenge. Some of the other women resent the special treatment she receives from Dr. Grant, and they’ll do whatever they can to keep the two of them apart. It seems she has inadvertently made an enemy of at least one man as well, and he’ll stop at nothing to come between her and Michael Grant.
It takes a near crisis to open Anna’s eyes to the truth about loyalty, from both animals and people. She’s ready to swallow her pride, if Michael is willing to give her another chance.
Michael blames himself for what happened – he should’ve shared his history in the beginning. Is it too late to tell her now, and ask her to give him another chance?
