Lyn Cote Interviews Historical Author Laurie Kingery — 30 Comments

  1. Your book sounds great! It’s just my type of book too. Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. Summer G, thanks for commenting. It’s hard to achieve that peace after a betrayal, but feels good when you can do it, right?
    Blessings, Laurie

  3. THanks for the giveaway. Yes, I’ve been hurt by a very close friend. I was very betrayed. However, I’ve moved on with my life and without her. I still think of her often and feel at peace.

  4. Hi Lyn,
    Thank *you.* Your readers are so nice, and they posted really good comments. It was my pleasure. And thanks for all the tweets! I’ll keep checking for further comments.
    Blessings, Laurie

  5. Laurie,
    Thanks for being my guest. People can still leave comments till Sunday. I post winners every Monday.

  6. Piper, I love the stories here too! I never know what my guests are going to share but they are always so honest.

  7. Susan F., thanks. Sometimes during that period of betrayal and recovery, I wanted to say “Lord, enough growth already!” 🙂 and it can take years to gain enough distance from the event to have te proper perspective on it.
    Blessings, Laurie

  8. While our trials make us stronger, it still hurts to be betrayed. Long ago, a high school friend betrayed me. However, we are now best of friends and do not even talk about the bad times!
    I have not read any of your books…but would like to change that!

  9. I know the heartaches of betrayal too. I think God allows us to grow through trials like this. It is a very good thing when an author can take what she learns and use a character’s story to help others see the grace of God in times like these! Bless you Laurie Kingery and Lyn Cote!!

  10. Sharma, I’m so sorry that happened to you. It’s even worse when you lose two people at once. God bless you, and thanks for commenting. I’m glad to read in your second note that there was a happy ending for you.
    Blessings, Laurie

  11. yes, by my ex-husband and ex-best friend who slept with each other. That is why that both are ex.

  12. Yes, my best friend lied to me and had me babysit for her 2 kids while she sneaked off to the motel with my husband. ( now ex-husband) and ( ex-best friend) I have now moved on and have a wonderful Christian husband and a wonderful marriage.

  13. No worries, it happens all the time usually Pipper, so yours is creative and new! The land grab series sounds great too. I will look forward to that and Ella’s story as well! Thanks!

  14. Betrayal can be a devastating thing, however, through the grace of God forgiveness is possible!! I SO appreciate Laurie’s books, and her ability to both challenge AND inspire!! Looking forward to “Hill Country Cattleman”!!

  15. Yes, I have been betrayed big time.
    Won’t go into the details here.
    Not what most people think.
    Sounds like a really good book.
    Would love to read it.

  16. Kristy, thanks! You’re right–you can’t go very far in life without getting hurt, but you can choose to let it break you or make you stronger, with God’s help.
    Blessings, Laurie

  17. Pipcer, thanks! I appreciate your reading all of the series and glad you’re enjoying it. The character “up next” in the series is Ella–in fact, I was 75% done with her story when I had to lay it aside temporarily to participate in a 3-author continuity about the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889. That will be out in April next year, but now I’m not sure of Ella’s new pub date. You can watch for news on my website–
    Thanks for asking this. 🙂
    Blessings, Laurie

  18. Thanks for commenting, Amy C. Yes, God is in control! Now it brings me joy to tell others how God worked everything for my well-being, and I am happier now than ever!
    Blessings, Laurie

  19. Laurie ,
    I don’t think I knew you met your hubby through EHarmony, I see their ads all the time and wondered if it were really true, glad to hear there is good work there. Sad that you had to go through such a rough time with first husband but I can see it helped you grow. Sometimes it takes the rough spots in life to make us better in years ahead. Love to read your books-keep writing.

  20. Cathy, thanks for reminding me of when we met! I enjoyed talking to you that day. I’m glad things worked out so well with you and your coworker.
    Blessings, Laurie

  21. One of the blessings of ACFW ’12 was meeting Laurie on the bus to Grapevine! What a delight!

    I had difficulty with a coworker – not as bad as what Laurie went through, but bad enough that I changed jobs. Years and many prayers later she sent me an olive-branch email. Today we work together in peace. All praise to God!

  22. Yes, someone has. It brought me more joy than anyone could imagine. A reminder that God is in control.

  23. I so appreciate the candor in your interview, Laurie. I have read all the books in the series–love them! Any hints on who is next up in the club? Thank you for this interview Lyn; I love to read about strong women!

  24. Laurie ~ I grew up in Ohio – beautiful country. : )

    I wonder who might be able to say they’ve never been hurt? We’ve all probably been in that place of disappointment/hurt when someone has let us down. But to see how you’ve emerged from your severe hurt to bless others is quite inspiring! You can now be such an inspiration to others. Thank you for sharing with us! : ) Kristy
