BioKaren Welch was born in Richmond, Virginia and grew up in nearby Amelia County, where her family had originally settled in the 1720’s. After a twenty year sojourn in North Florida, she now resides in Southeast Kansas with husband John, a cocker spaniel named Raleigh and an eccentric calico cat who on occasion answers to Patches. Her long delayed writing career began in 2012 with the publication of her first novel, Hearts Unfold. This inspirational romance quickly grew into the Miracle at Valley Rise series with the release of Entreat Me Not, Heart of My Own Heart and Offered for Love in the following year. Karen is also the author of the holiday novella, Christmas at Valley Rise, and Shannon’s Daughter, a romance set in the mid-twentieth century revolving around one of the most intriguing characters in the series. Her most recent release, Katie Lost and Found, begins a new series titled Welcome to Walnut Lodge.

Set in the years around 1970, Hearts Unfold begins the saga of two people whose paths should never have crossed, who defy the odds to create a life they can share. The first of four volumes in the Miracle at Valley Rise Series, this novel could stand alone as a triumphant tale of romance, but there’s much more to the story, as Emily and Stani reveal their pasts and strive to bridge the distance between their worlds.
