Unlikely Reward (Paperback)
"You can't always tell a person's character by their spandex miniskirt and four-inch stilettos." Leah Grace, and her dog, dolphin, and horse companions encounter yet another mystery when a gorgeous lady of questionable repute literally crashes into their refuge. Leah, just two years earlier a runaway herself escaping a horror-filled past, recognizes a fellow sufferer. In Book 4 of the best-selling Unlikely Friends Series, Leah and Hank are planning their wedding when a boat slams into Leah's shore. Who is this seductively dressed stranger who crashes her boat? Is she the victim of a dangerous man as she claims, or a criminal wanted by the police as he claims? She's lying...that's clear... but why? What would God have Leah, a new believer, do to help the wounded woman with a sordid past? Deceitful hearts and deceptive exteriors are exposed with surprising revelations about sin, redemption, and sacrificial love.
Kaseorg, born in Pennsylvania in 1956, studied art and writing at Binghamton University, and became a professional artist early in her career. She went on to graduate school at USC Los Angeles where she studied Occupational Therapy. She owned her own Occupational Therapy practice for many years in NY, and with the birth of her prodigiously gifted first son, began homeschooling. She has bicycled across the USA, run a marathon, completed a biathalon, learned to ski at age 50, successfully graduated all three children from homeschool to prestigious universities, yet still feels the most difficult task she has ever had to accomplish "is living a consistent, righteous life before God and my family." Between running a business and homeschooling, Vicky never stopped writing. Upon moving to NC, she retired from Occupational Therapy and focused on art, teaching art, and homeschooling her three children. She began writing her first book in 2009 when the rescue and rehabilitation of a homeless, hopeless, vicious dog sparked the desire to capture the story in prose. As the mother of three children, all home-schooled through high-school, she noted, "This is proof that God exists, as there is no way I could teach all those grades and subjects on my own power." She is the published author of over 20 books, all with a core message of faith, hope and redemption. Nearly all have been #1 in their category upon release. God's presence in each book, if not directly mentioned, is certainly felt. Family members and friends used to chide Vicky for "seeing God in everything", when she would squeeze out a biblical message in not only the common-place events of her day, but in secular movies, books, and activities. With the rescue of the dog that led to her first book, Vicky realized that perhaps this tendency of hers was not a flaw. Perhaps it could even be used to help others find that God was indeed speaking to them...had always been speaking to them. To this end, she also is going on her fifth year of writing a daily inspirational blog, which she illustrates, at vickykaseorg.blogspot.com. She is currently at work on her latest book, while remaining passionate speaking on behalf of the unborn and active in work with Cities4Life to that end. She also eeks as much time as she can kayaking, bicycling, running, skiing, and art. Vicky lives with her husband of 37 years and counting, along with countless spiders which she actively rescues and sets free whenever possible.
