A haunting past is resolved when Ronnie confronts visions from heaven, faces evil that devastated her family, and supports unthinkable actions to reconcile past wrongs.
In “The Hustings: A Family Web,” the return of the Husting heir awakens old ghosts as family secrets are revealed and lives are changed forever. D.L. Gollnitz announces her return into the publishing scene with its sequel, “The Hustings: Ronnie’s Resurrection” (published by Archway Publishing) in which a haunting past is resolved when Ronnie confronts visions from heaven, faces evil that devastated her family, and supports unthinkable actions to reconcile past wrongs.
Veronica Emma-Mae Husting has reinvented herself more than once in a chase for elusive happiness. Ronnie finally comes home but experiences a near-death accident that forces her to face the past, present, and possible future during a visit to the afterlife. She learns what is important without totally abandoning the riches she has always adored.
After reconnecting with Ware Treallor, the true love of her life and father of her only daughter, Ronnie works to strengthen her family presence but discovers how much she has missed. This novel journeys through Ronnie’s life in California and her fight to avoid addiction to prescription drugs, a threat facilitated by a decision to marry for wealth. Family secrets continue to surface as Ware and Ronnie reestablish the Husting estate that haunts them with tragedies that affect their children and grandchildren.
Ware’s grown son and daughter by another marriage react to their father’s truths differently. Both are challenged to be with the person they love for reasons that vary as greatly as the family’s misfortunes. Ware discovers mysteries surrounding his sister, Betty’s, involvement in Ronnie’s broken past, and he takes drastic actions to bring Betty to the place she belongs. Each character is brought to their intended home.
“This sequel gives readers a deeper look at the Husting family, including the paths of Ronnie’s grandchildren. Those who have not read the first book will be engaged by Ronnie’s time in a near-death state. She experiences stages of an afterlife and ultimately finds the determination needed to right wrongs of her past, to rescue her family from future tragedy, and to reclaim her family estate,” Gollnitz says. When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, she answers, “Everyone has the capacity to shift paradigms when loved ones are involved in lifestyles and activities that are contrary to long-held perspectives on right and wrong.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.archwaypublishing.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/843356-the-hustings
