Agatha Windham has lost her mind!
Surely. Otherwise she wouldn't have nightmares and ‘daymares’
centered around a small Jewess who is captured by German
soldiers during World War II. Nor would she watch a German
farmer step into her office out of a stained-glass window. Nor
would she hear him request her help with food and medical
supplies for Jewish refugees and history books to plan a
liberation mission into Dachau Concentration Camp. After all,
she lives in 1982 Cape Cod, and he just walked into her life
from 1942 Germany.
The Other Side of Time is a love story that draws a
grieving widow into a time-travel adventure. Forty years peel
away when she finds herself in the middle of World War II where
capture, terror, and war confront her, but also new love. Yet
her return to life as a grandmother in 1982 is equally
threatening when she is faced with former Nazis bent on
silencing her before she can reveal their despicable secret:
selling art objects confiscated from Jews during WWII.
Deal with both sides of time
Agatha can and must while she decides where she wants to spend
the rest of her life: as a library owner in her place in time or
with her new love as a underground resistance worker in war-torn
Germany. But, before she can decide, Agatha’s decision is
cruelly snatched from her, and she must find a way to get back
to the man she loves on the OTHER SIDE of time.
"A mystery with a message..."
First in the Highlands Ranch Mystery Series!

Check out the review in the November 2009
issue of Colorado Country Living Magazine:
New Pictures of an Old Murder is the first novel in the Highlands Ranch Mystery Series featuring
Atwell, who has a nearly-always-absent husband—often
away building homes with Habitat for Humanity and former President Jimmy Carter; five children; two mares named
Burt and Ernie; a golden retriever named George; an old ranch
house in the heart of Highlands Ranch, Colorado that needs much updating; and an Erma Bombeck sense of humor.
Val is plunged into a mystery when film found at the site of her
sister’s fatal car crash is developed and pictures of what look
like murder appear on the prints. Val, of course, investigates,
and the clues lead to a monied member of Val’s husband’s
congregation. When Val confronts the man, she is chastised by
holier-than-thou church members, but she sticks to her mission
and forges ahead nonetheless to find out how the pictures relate
to her sister’s death.
During this time of turmoil, Val also works with her teenage son
who is teased and bullied at school because he is the son of a
minister. She guides him away from fighting and into building
his self-esteem and self-worth by working to excel in something
that he loves.
But before long, Val’s
amateurish, pesky, not-so-subtle investigation launches her
directly into the path of a killer—a killer who thinks nothing
of another murder, Rocky Mountain style!
