The authors of Inspired by Life…and Fiction thought our readers might be inspired by the gardens of the novelists who are featured on the blog “The Plot Thickens.” Each Sunday, we’ll share another novelist’s newest book, and the garden spots where they find inspiration.
Since selling her first book in 1997, Carolyne Aarsen has had numerous novels published. Her stories reflect a love of God, family, and rural life. When not writing she helps her husband with his logging business, and with the cows, horses and chickens on their farm in Neerlandia, Canada, where long winters make them appreciate their flowers all the more. (The lovely arbor bench below is the view from Carolyne’s office window!) Carolyne and her husband have raised four children and numerous foster children, and are now enjoying the addition of grandchildren to their family. Read more about Carolyne at www.carolyneaarsen.com.
