Diane E. Tatum
Daughter of a bordello madame and an Italian captain of the seas, Angelina Mercy longs for a new life, free from the condemnation associated with her mother's home in Boston. A former navy man, Jonathan Thomson, has accepted God's call and become a minister of a small congregation. Adrift from his Yankee heritage in the Missouri plains, Jonathan longs for a family of his own. Pursuing Alice, the daughter of the town's wealthy patron, Jonathan believes he can tame her wild ways.
Can Jonathan ignore Angelina's Gold Earrings, a constant reminder of the implications of her less than pristine parentage? The resilient heroine will inspire you in this touching tale of love against the odds.

Diane was born in Louisville, KY, raised, married, and had 2 sons in north St. Louis County, MO. Her young family relocated to Newport News, VA, so her aerospace engineer husband could work at NASA-Langley.

In 1997, Diane received her Masters and teaching certificate just a month before moving to Tullahoma, TN, when her husband began a new job at AEDC facilities.

Diane has
been a consultant for AP/College Board leading conferences for teachers with Pre-AP (middle school) students to prepare their students to take AP classes in high school. She has also been a consultant concerning youth Sunday School for the Southern Baptist Convention, the Tennessee Baptist Convention, the Baptist General Assembly of Virginia, and the Peninsula Baptist Association.

What Others Are Saying
Diane your book is so good I truly believe that Hallmark should use it for one of there movies Thanks so much for sharing your story with us and I cannot wait for you next book to come out.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are all real and struggle in their walk with God and his will for their lives. Plus, I really liked that the main character in this book overcame her family background. This book teaches tolerance and every person is responsible for their own walk with God.

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)
