This Blessed House(Blessed Series Book 1)

She transported the materials to her building site at Lake Hayes and with lively imagination and artistic flair designed a grand old English-style country home.

Unshakable faith and incurable optimism leads Da'Vella into buying yet another church. Against all odds, after a horrendous car crash, she attempts to build again. The enchanting Gallery she has struggled to build to display her Art Work has a mind of its own and wants to be a 'Chapel!' She puts down her brushes, exchanges her cap as an Artist and becomes a 'Marriage Celebrant'. Gradually she picks up the threads of her busy and colourful life and weaves her loom, a wealth of glorious colour as she spreads her wings once more and learns to fly again.
