(Newswire.net -- May 8, 2013) Orange County, CA -- California resident, Rosemary Hines spent much of her youth immersed in New Age beliefs and practices before her conversion to Christianity. She was a teacher for twenty years, fifteen of those at middle school level. Her stories reflect her own personal experiences, and she includes a letter to her readers at the end of each novel, sharing her own life with open candor.

While authors typically announce the release of one novel at a time, Hines held her announcement until the three books were available. An avid fiction fan herself, Rosemary hopes her readers will appreciate the seamless transition from one story to the next.

Early reviews show Hines has met her goals, with each of the novels rated strong five-star responses on Amazon. Readers report enjoying the strong thread of suspense and the realistic nature of the characters and storylines.

The first novel of the series, OUT OF A DREAM, portrays the lure of New Age practices and beliefs on a young woman seeking answers to some reoccurring nightmares. A parallel plot reveals the despair of the main character’s father, a self-made man who is facing a life crisis and considering suicide as an escape.

The second book in the series, THROUGH THE TEARS, addresses the sensitive topic of abortion through the eyes of the same main character as she struggles with infertility. Hines’ message favoring adoption over abortion is delivered with compassion, sensitivity and suspense.

Hines’ third novel, INTO MAGNOLIA, launches the main character’s teaching career and examines the impact of divorce, mental illness, and the foster care system upon the lives of children. Subjects such as premarital sex and teen pregnancy are woven through this tale of one young girl’s search for love and the teacher who impacts her life.
