About the Book

Visit the Grand Hotel of Mackinac Island where Lily, a popular soloist, is questioning her sanity in a journal rediscovered 125 years later.

Book Synopsis

The Grand Hotel Slowly Reveals Her Secrets

Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.

Two successful women, a hundred-and-twenty-years apart, build walls to protect their hearts. Modern-day Willa, a successful interior decorator, is chosen to go to Mackinac Island and consult for the Grand Hotel's possible redesign. During work on a room, she discovers a journal detailing the struggles of a young woman, Lily--which reveals dark secrets. The renowned singer wasn't who she pretended to be.

As Willa reaches out to Lily's descendant, a charismatic and prominent landscape artist, she lets down her guard. Should she share the journal with him--revealing hidden history--or once again erect a wall as she struggles to redesign both the Grand and her life?

CARRIE FANCETT PAGELS, Ph.D., awarding-winning author of over twenty Christian fiction books, is a former psychologist of 25 years and enjoys spending her summers at the Straits of Mackinac, where this story is set.

In Behind Love's Wall, beloved author Carrie Fancett Pagels skillfully weaves two generations' worth of romance and secrets to craft a captivating story set on breathtaking Mackinac Island.

- Susanne Dietze, RWA RITA(R) nominated, Selah Award-winning author of The Blizzard Bride and A Small-Town Christmas Challenge

Behind Love's Wall takes the reader on a double journey of intrigue and romance on Michigan's Mackinac Island. Author Carrie Fancett Pagels does a well-balanced job in this dual-timeline story. From 1895 to 2020, the setting of the famous Grand Hotel immerses the reader in the grandeur and elegance of a time gone by that is still accessible today. While Lily and Stephan do their best to hide their pasts in 1895, Willa and Michael are equally determined to unearth them in 2020. There are enough tangled webs in this story to keep the reader happily turning each page. This may be my favorite book by this author yet.
- Pegg Thomas, award-winning author of Sarah's Choice
