Ellen and the Hummingtree
Audrey Austin

Cover design:

A strong woman of faith, Ellen sits beneath her Hummingtree and talks to God through the yellow quartz rock.
She gifts us with glimpses of her life and shares the import of her personal relationship with family, friends and with God.
She allows us to witness her vulnerability and invites us into her heart where we experience her joys and sorrows.
In a few instances the author has drawn from her life’s experience but, in essence, Ellen is a composite of many beautiful, spiritual women the author has known and loved throughout her journey.
It is hoped you will welcome Ellen into your heart and it is hoped you will enjoy the stories she shares with you in this book; her fictional, magical, mystical memoirs titled Ellen and The Hummingtree.
At the outset of this writing journey we met. I became acquainted with her and now I can say that I truly like Ellen. She has the courage of her convictions And no matter what life threw at her, she never lost faith.
If someone you love is experiencing Alzheimer Disease, as Ellen does, then you will want to read Ellen's story.

The Linen Cupboard .. free Sunday, Nov. 22nd, in the Kindle Store

It is moving day; a most difficult time. Not only is she saying good-bye to the house but also to her mother. She feels okay though, keeping herself together, until she reaches the linen cupboard.

I love writing short stories and it is my pleasure to add my latest short story titled The Linen Cupboard to my current collection available for your reading pleasure. When my mother passed away more than 25 years ago I truly was okay leaving her home; that is until I knew it was time to empty her linen cupboard. This personal experience is the inspiration for this fictional story.

The Linen Cupboard is free tomorrow, Sunday, November 22nd, for your reading pleasure in the Kindle Store. Check it out at or at my author's page

SARA, a Canadian Saga, free in the Kindle Store, Wednesday, November 4th

The time is 1916. Sara is a 10 year old girl in rural Prince Edward Island. Roy is a 10 year old boy in mining town, Nova Scotia. Through their eyes we see, feel and experience their childhood challenges. We follow them through adolescence and their turbulent teen years. We celebrate their courtship and suffer their lost innocence in the wedding ritual. They take us through the Great Depression and share with us the frustrations, dreams and challenges they face in adulthood. As parents they introduce us to their children. This story appeals to all ages because Sara and Roy hold up a mirror and ask the reader to recognize truth about the human condition for many Canadian families through difficult economic times. We witness love that does not come neatly wrapped and experience the quiet, sometimes desperate, drama of lives unfolding.
SARA, a Canadian Saga, is free tomorrow (Wednesday) in the Kindle Store for your reading pleasure. Check it out at

 If you enjoyed reading SARA, thanks for your positive review on Amazon.
