Escape to Osprey Cove

What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.

Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in happily ever after — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home.

Authors Note: The Osprey Cove Lodge series is uniquely written, spanning seven geographic locations from the scenic Canadian region of the Rideau lakes to the beautiful shores of the Caribbean. An interesting web of mystery develops as the characters’ lives intertwine. The setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge series was born from my love of the beauty of this region in Canada. The description of the lodge is so beautiful and inviting that you will want to pack your bags and head there. The series is written in a continuing fashion; please be sure to read the books in the order written.


Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

Luisa Marietta Gold was born and educated in Pennsylvania, where she spent a large part of her adult life and worked for a large corporation. After her only daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina, where she worked as a Realtor and began running a recreational business with her husband. She currently resides on eleven acres near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau lake chain that provides the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series. The series was born from her love of that region of Canada, the outdoors, and lake life. Many years were spent enjoying the Rideau, staying in lodges, and for a time, her privately-owned cottage. Among her many interests are painting, cooking, baking. And of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment — the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons and watching her kitties interact and play. Nearly all of these interests and life experiences are reflected in her books.

My Demon, My Jesus: Delivered from Demonic Oppression & Suicidal Depression; Brought Back from Death Into Victorious Life, Divine Joy & Visions

In 1997 I killed myself.

God had another plan.

Four angels woke me from barbiturate oblivion urging me to “Wake up! Call for help!”

The angels’ voices pushed me forward as I dragged my body off the couch and crawled across the floor to my phone. The operator picked up and my mind collapsed into emptiness.

I left my body that night. My disembodied spirit floated weightlessly through hospital corridors. I watched from the ceiling as medics pounded on the chest of my body below me before my soul blasted back into it.

This began my tangled passage from brokenness, drug addiction, demonic oppression and death into healing and spiritual awakening. Today I am completely drug and depression free. In the two decades since my suicide attempt, Jesus has guided me into true healing from depression, and taught me to enjoy a deeply victorious life with Him as my companion.

~

In the summer of 2019, I read a book about meditation and decided to try it. I incorporated my Christian faith into the steps and used this new technique to seek the presence of God through silence. Meditative prayer has become part of my daily routine and has drawn me even more deeply into relationship with Jesus as I still my thoughts and rest in His beautiful presence.

Then I started having strange vision experiences in which my spirit was transported to a heavenly place full of God’s glory where I prayed for our world along with millions of other saints. The visions took me by surprise. I wasn’t seeking them. I had never even heard of anything similar happening to any other modern day Christian. I was disturbed and suspicious at first.

Over time, through months of testing and praying and searching, God slowly convinced me in the quiet, loving way He does, that I wasn’t going insane. The visions were really from Him. I learned that many other Biblically sound Christians also have visions today.

~
God loves and cares deeply about us.
~

The visions continued. They were varied, included multiple locations and introductions to various characters from Biblical history and loved ones from my own life. Were the visions really happening or purely spiritual, like waking dreams? I cannot answer that. They are so vivid, often involving all my senses. They seem very real to me. But whatever the answer, one defining message clearly threads throughout all of them. God loves and cares deeply about us. He wants us to know Him and delights to teach us about His character. I was being called to join with the saints in praying for our world, for a great awakening that would draw all people to God.

One of God’s charges was that I write everything down, every vision in detail. As I did this I realized that there was a connection between the visions and my own life journey, from my early experiences of demonic oppression and suicide to eventual miraculous healing through the love of Christ. I began to understand that my visions about God’s love for us were also a message to others struggling with depression. My own story of God’s healing could be used to help others learn how to seek God’s healing presence through meditative prayer.

So I told it all, from a demonically oppressed disturbed child who also fell in love with Jesus and prayed to become a Christian at six years old, to a suicidally depressed young adult who overdosed on sleeping pills and was brought back from death in the hospital, to years addicted to prescription drugs, to miraculous healing, victorious life and divine visions.~

My healing was miraculous. But it was not instantaneous. It was a process of learning how to think in a healthy way, how to shift my thoughts and spirit life from defeat to victory. My prayer is that my journey will help others climb their way out of the trap of poisonous thought patterns and prescribed drug addictions. There are so many of us out there fighting this battle…

Meet Amnoni L Myers

A native of Boston, MA Amnoni (pronounced Ah-mon-knee) began her life as a ward of the state, and her childhood experiences in foster care drive her commitment to help others realize their potential and break the cycles of generational poverty. She recently received her Masters of Public Administration from the National Urban Fellows Program Class of 2017. In this prestigious program, Amnoni was placed at the California Endowment in Oakland, CA where she worked on the My Brother’s Keeper Initiative for young boys and men of color. Amnoni previously worked with the U.S. Children’s Bureau as a child welfare policy consultant. She graduated from Gordon College with a double major in Social Work and Sociology, and completed a Social Work and Peace and Conflict Studies Practicum in San Francisco. She has also traveled to South Africa to study race, class and integrated what she learned in South Africa with her domestic advocacy efforts. As a 2014 Foster Youth Internship Program™ participant with the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI), Amnoni interned in the office of U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley where she worked on child welfare initiatives for the Senator and his staff in support of his role on the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. Through this same program, Amnoni also wrote and published a policy report entitled Renewing the System’s Commitment to Child Well Being: Fostering Resilience through Trauma Informed Training, which she presented to both the White House Domestic Policy Council and Members of Congress. Amnoni was also the keynote speaker at the 2014 CCAI Angels in Adoption™ Gala in Washington, D.C. where she shared her story of resilience and triumph to Members of Congress, Administration leaders, and child welfare advocates from across the nation.

In May of 2015, she was invited to once again present her policy recommendations at a congressional briefing hosted by the U.S. Senate Caucus on Foster Youth. That same month, she also delivered opening remarks at the 2015 Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit, an annual national gathering of child welfare advocates and churches.

Such Unfortunates

Each year, more Americans die of drug abuse than the total of those who perished during the Vietnam War. This is the true story of an addict who was able to overcome his addiction against all odds. Andrew’s life began in an upper-class town of Moorestown, New Jersey. His family had a million-dollar beach house, he attended college and even had the rare opportunity of driving a Ferrari around South Florida. His life seemed normal on the outside, but the internal turmoil he was experiencing was a horrific ordeal. Behind what seemed like an idyllic life was a nightmare of abuse, mental illness, and torment that no child should ever face. This led Andrew to suffer from pain, anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Searching for relief, he found solace in drugs and became quickly addicted to anything that would change the way he felt. His addiction to drugs took him to such extremes as working for the DEA while being high on drugs, multiple rehabs, jails, becoming homeless, and even to the point of being considered dead. When all hope was lost, people he considers “angels” entered his life. One person, in particular, refused to give up on him even when everyone told her this was the best option. Through her determination, he was able to find the strength to look inside and find the real reasons for his addiction. Once he understood these reasons, he was finally able to figure out how to stay clean and successfully turned his life around. This book will give hope to anyone who is suffering from addiction or knows someone who is facing the adversity of addiction. It will show them why they should never give up and how working together, we can beat this opiate epidemic.
