The author of over twenty-five novels, Kathleen Fuller lives in northeastern Ohio, which is the setting for her new novella, The Calling. For Kathleen, the local Unionville Tavern, a currently unused historical spot, provided the germ for her story idea. “Once I found out the tavern was a stagecoach shop [in the early 19th century], I immediately came up with the idea of a traveler stopping at the tavern on a regular basis.”
The hero of The Calling is a young man struggling with his destiny. Is he called to be a minister in his home town, or to the burgeoning populations of the then-far west? His father wants him home, but his heart yearns to the frontier and he regularly stops at the tavern on his way west–during basically “short term” mission projects. It’s the tavern keeper’s daughter who recognizes the desires of his heart even as she falls in love with him.
