From a vineyard in the south of France to the sophisticated city of Paris, Ella Moreau searches for the hope and love she lost as a young girl when her mother abandoned the family.

About the Author

Jayme H. Mansfield is an author, artist, and educator and feels a bit incomplete when she’s not juggling all three balls. An award-winning author of vivid and literary stories, her debut historical romance book, Chasing the Butterfly, received the 2016 Illumination Award for Enduring Christian Fiction, the 2015 Christian Small Publishers Book of the Year for Historical Fiction and the 2015 Inspirational Readers Choice Award Finalist for Women’s Fiction.

Jayme lives in Lakewood, Colorado with her four “boys” three hungry, hockey playing sons and a big kid husband, and a very needy Golden Retriever who steals paintbrushes and demands walks. When she isn’t writing, she teaches art to children and adults at her long-time studio, Piggy Toes, and elementary and middle school art at Aspen Academy.

She loves to hide in her studio to escape the mayhem, and travels with her characters to faraway places and long ago times. If you’re itching to journey to Paris and Provence, or saddle up and head west in her upcoming book, please visit jaymehmansfield to sign up to receive her newsletter, be inspired by her blog, and dabble in art lessons and creative inspirations.

She loves to speak with large and small groups and is a visiting author, book club junkie. Please “like her on, tweet her @Jaymemansfield and check out her lively boards on Pinterest.
