Regarding Anna

After recovering from the shock of her parents perishing in a tragic accident, Grace Lindroth discovers clues in their attic that cause her to believe the people she called Mom and Dad her whole life may not have been her real parents.

In her search for the truth, Grace encounters people whose actions cause her to be distrustful of just about everyone, making her mission that much more difficult but heightening her determination to uncover what she believes is essential for her to go on with her life.

From the author

The theme that runs through this book is “Things that happen to you in the past can mold you into someone you’re not.” Do you know anyone like that? I sure do. The protagonist in this story had the ability to look past the outside shell that some people in her life had created for themselves, and it’s a good thing she did as it made a significant difference in her life.

I hope you enjoy reading Regarding Anna as much as I enjoyed writing it!

As an author who likes to help new and aspiring writers get started, Florence developed a website that offers substantial advice on crafting stories, getting self-published, promoting books, and more.

Florence currently resides in downtown Chicago where she is working on her next novel.

 5.0 out of 5 stars An Intelligent, Intriguing Journey of Discovery April 5, 2015
Florence Osmund’s latest novel of a woman’s intriguing search to find out the truth about her parents will keep you guessing to the very last page. A private investigator, Grace Lindroth, the protagonist, sets out on a winding journey that leads to a colorful cast of characters along the way, some unsavory and others deeply endearing. Every detail of this novel is finely carved. Osmund is a master at weaving complicated, unexpected plot developments and twists and turns that readers just don’t see coming. This is an intelligent read, with a lot of heart and a dose of humor. I highly recommend it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Journey to find identities April 12, 2015
The layers of identity of Anna, those of the characters encountered by main character Grace Lindroth and a special house are slowly peeled back, like the skins of an onion. The author weaves the idiosyncrasies of nearly everyone tightly and with skill. The journey of Grace to find her true identity is one with twists of clues and turns of suspicions that confound even this private detective. While many of us guess endings, this is one that eluded me and truly kept my interest to the end. I look forward to more works by Florence Osmund.

I enjoyed reading Regarding Anna. The first paragraph will grab you and keep you reading. The story takes place in Chicago and also refers to surrounding suburbs. I like the fact that the narrator was a private investigator. This was not her expected profession, and not a usual profession for a woman in the 1960s. I appreciate a book where you think you have it all figured out, and then realize you don’t. Maybe a twist or turn will be missed by the reader, which always makes a book more interesting. This results in a good read.

I have enjoyed each of Ms. Osmund’s books but I must say this has to be my favorite. The story line is excellent and the characters are true to life and I always enjoy the fact that the locations are familiar to me, but the best is I never saw the ending coming! That rarely happens and I am an avid reader. I am sorry it ended and am anxiously awaiting her next book. Soon, I hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating mystery with warm humanity April 27, 2015

I enjoyed this book very much. The protagonist is a likeable person. The characters were well developed, and also not simplistic. As in real life, people are complex with positive and negative traits. The mystery was great, with twists that were unexpected but not difficult to follow. I never would have guessed the ending. The ending as well did not wrap up all the characters’ lives. They have some ambiguous feelings as real people would, to ponder and perhaps to see different perspectives with time.

The dialog was well written. The story moved forward without bogging down. I was never bored, hoping to get past any part.

This was an immensely satisfying read. I think it shows a gracious, loving personality of the author as well.

What a great book. It kept me up late turning pages. I love how Ms Osmund weaves Chicago, the suburbs and things we know about into the story. The storyline was interesting and really kept your attention. You felt for them and what they were all going through at one time or another. I loved the fact that the lead character was an independent woman. She was before her time in the 60’s. All of the characters were very relatable. Thank you for another good read. It was a great beach read.

Really liked this story! Completely “clean”, no smut…not even a bad word. Very engaging, could not stop reading until I had finished the WHOLE book. Thank you Florence for these enjoyable hours. I often read Christian fiction just for the good clean reading, so really enjoyed this mystery as a change of pace. Always have loved a good mystery book.
