Near her eighteenth birthday, Margaret Lenora Caine finds a chest hidden in the attic containing proof that she was adopted. The daughter of wealthy merchants in Seattle, she feels betrayed both by her real parents and by the ones who raised her.
When Maggie asks to visit her grandmother in Arkansas, her father agrees on the condition that she take her Aunt Georgia as a chaperone and his young partner, Charles Stanton, as protection on the journey. Will she discover who she really is and, more importantly, what truly matters most in life?
Lena: Maggie Lenora – Maggie – 18 – petite, red curly hair, green eyes with golden flecks in them, porcelain skin

I’ve attached two photos. I used Nicole Kidman for Maggie.
Strengths and weaknesses
Maggie is spoiled by her daddy, but not her mother. She’s strong-willed and impetuous, very creative. She designs dresses, and she’s a very good sketch artist and painter.
Discovery of a family secret affected Maggie in very deep ways.
Charles is intelligent, but somewhat conceited at the beginning of the book. He had some hard lessons to learn
Quirk (if any)
Charles likes to bow to women in jest
Your inspiration for the character
My characters come to me before the story emerges. I believe they’re inspired by God to reveal an interesting story
Background to the story
Identical triplet girls were born on one of the last wagon trains on the Oregon Trail. Their mother dies after giving birth to them. Their father is devastated after losing the love of his life. He can’t imagine taking care of one baby by himself, much less three. He carefully chooses two families, for specific reasons, to give one of the babies. The girls grow up without knowing about their sisters. They each discover that they have sisters near their 18th birthday.
