"Tressa", Barbara T. Cerny

Tressa and Ethan struggle to save themselves and the budding love between them

"Tressa" is the story of a young woman running away from an abusive husband and the loss of her newborn baby, Tressa O’Daire leaves Dublin, Ireland, for a new start in the Big Apple. A baker by trade, she finds work in New York with the Langley family as a nursemaid to their baby girl. Tressa begins using their oven to start her own business and a new life. Ethan Langley, crippled in a riding accident that left him in a wheelchair, has spent the last eight years in his room hiding away from his family and the hatred of his brother, Heaton. The only bright spot in his life is his sister, Sarah. Then a certain Irish baker arrives and turns his life upside down.

But Ethan and Tressa’s romance hits a snag when the head of the Langley household dies unexpectedly, leaving the business and family fortune to Heaton. As Heaton brings the family to the brink of ruination and danger, Tressa and Ethan struggle to save themselves and the budding love between them.

About the Author
Barbara T. Cerny grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado, which at that time was a small town of 30,000 people. She left that little burg to see the world, garner three college degrees, and to serve in the U.S. Army. After eight years on active duty and 14 years in the reserves, she retired as a lieutenant colonel in 2007. While deployed to the Middle East in 2005, she finally figured out she had to get going on the real love of her life, writing. She wrote her first two novels during that time and hasn't stopped. She is presently working on novels number seven, eight, and nine. When not writing, the author works as an information technology specialist and supervisor for the U.S. Air Force. She lives with her loving husband, their two active teenagers, two needy cats, and two turtles. The turtles patiently watch her write and listen to her intently as she discusses plot lines with them.
