Circle of Love is a lot like watching a movie.  I can “see” the characters and everything that happens clearly…it’s so romantic.

        —Dr. Wanda Vassallo, author, speaker, and educator

I took a peek and became lost in the story.  I just kept reading and couldn’t stop.

        —Lucille Cunningham, professor of English

Meet two women, separated by distance, culture, and 350 years:  Tracy Anne Stevens—an American ad agency owner, hiding her panic attacks and haunted by past mistakes.  And Honour Elizabeth Mayfield—a young lady of the manor, caught up in the perils of seventeenth century Staffordshire during England’s Civil War.

What could they possibly have in common?  Susan Bauer’s novel reveals what Tracy and Honour discover about themselves, the men they love (and hate!), and the fresh promise of new beginnings.

Feel their intensely personal wars of heart, soul, and mind.  Treachery of an advertising executive.  Miserable schemes from a sinister landowner.  The priceless gift of unconditional love from a Texas video producer.  And costly sacrifices by a handsome Cavalier soldier.

In the midst of secrets, fear, and palpable evil, can trust, faith, and selfless love overcome?

Circle of Love is an inspiring story for all lovers of romance, as well as English history buffs, readers struggling with anxiety or sexual regret, and media professionals.
