Elaine Donovan’s forebears have owned the Sacred Spring campground in Central Florida for generations, and Elaine has become an environmentalist because of her love of nature and of the property. Duty weighs heavily on the twenty-three year old Elaine, as she now finds herself responsible not only for the decrepit campground, but for her young brother, and aging Grandfather as well. When she meets developer, Hank Schaefer, she senses he may have answers for her, but discovers that his scheming female partner, Reva North, has other plans for the property. Elaine, then, is compelled then, to find her own inspiration that will preserve and fulfill her hopes and dreams.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is DiVoran Lites. I am the author of the Florida Springs Trilogy. All three books: Sacred Spring, Living Spring, and Clear Spring are now available at Kindle and on Amazon in print. Each book has its own complete cast of characters and story, but as you read them, you will find the people are a community of family and friends who have known and loved each other for many years. You will watch conflicts,common to man, played out in the characters' lives. You'll read such vivid descriptions of the fabulous Florida Springs that, according to reviewers, you will feel as if you've visited them yourself.
I'm told that even as a toddler I loved books and carried them around. Reading has been a passion ever since. It didn't take long to discover that the best enhancement for reading was writing. I started writing the story of my life in a back booth in my parents'restaurant in a mountain valley in Colorado. Dad said that since I was only seven years old, it would be a short story. I didn't understand the humor at the time. Since then writing has been my calling, and life and love have been my learning labs.
I am married to Bill, an areonautical engineer. We have two children and two granchildren. The way God works with people, and the creations he has given us to enjoy are my favorite subjects.
Sacred Spring by DiVoran Lites is book one in the Florida Spring Trilogy series. I have the other two books that I will read soon. I really did enjoy this first book.
Elaine, Ira, Scotty and Hank are such likable, loveable characters. The authors really created beautiful people, but also some people that you don’t like. The scenes described are so beautiful that you can imagine yourself there and even feel the warmth of the day.
Elaine loves wildlife and all of nature. She tries to save and keep things as they were intended to be. Not spoiled by so called progress. Elaine takes care of her ailing grandfather, little brother while trying to keep the failing campground she owns from having to be sold.
This is such a sweet book that you want to help Elaine out of her troubles, but also you want her to see Hank for what he is.
A book worth reading. I highly recommend it and I look forward to reading the next two books.
