Inspired by her love of nature, family, friends, and faith, Eleanor Lee Gustaw has created a work of fiction about two police officers who fall in love and get married in “The Stranger.”

Thea and Gene Ashton are police officers who are always ready to help others at a moment’s notice. Both have open hearts with their work, loved ones, and church.

“The novel was born from a very vague dream and I believed that it held extraordinary worth, which resulted in the creation of a short story of 32 pages,” said Gustaw. “A few years ago, I decided to write a full novel and worked diligently to encompass everything beautiful that it could be.”

Gustaw wrote the book as a response to all the sadness and devastation in the world and wanted to write a story that would uplift spirits.

“The Stranger” is a journey of two police officers who are governed by their hearts, as they realize that God chose them for this purpose and how nothing else is worthier than seeing the changes that God can bring to the human soul.
