The Hustings Sequel Has Arrived!

In this fiction novel that challenges religious beliefs, a haunting past is resolved when Ronnie confronts visions from heaven, faces evil that devastated her family, and supports unthinkable actions to reconcile past wrongs.

Veronica Emma Mae Husting has reinvented herself more than once in a chase for elusive happiness. Ronnie finally comes home but experiences a near-death accident that forces her to face the past, present, and possible future during a visit to the afterlife. She learns what is important without totally abandoning the riches she has always adored.

Having reconnected with Ware Treallor, the true love of her life and father of her only daughter, Ronnie works to strengthen her family presence but discovers how much she has missed. This book carries the reader through Ronnie’s life in California and her fight to avoid addiction to prescription drugs, a threat brought on by a decision to marry for wealth.

Family secrets continue to surface as Ware and Ronnie reestablish the Husting estate that haunts them with tragedies that they must share with all their children and grandchildren.

Ware’s grown son and daughter by another marriage react to their father’s truths differently. Both are challenged to be with the person they love for reasons that vary as greatly as the family’s misfortunes. Ware discovers mysteries surrounding his sister Betty’s involvement in Ronnie’s broken past, and he takes drastic actions to bring Betty to the place she belongs.

The Hustings: Ronnie’s Resurrection brings each character to their intended home.
