Florence Osmund

Short Description:

The troubled son of a callous father and socialite mother determines his own meaning of success after learning shocking family secrets that cause him to rethink who he is and where heʼs going.

Lee Winekoopʾs reinvention of himself is surprising; the roadblocks he confronts are unnerving; and the cast of characters he befriends along the way is both heartwarming and amusing. Join him on his journey into manhood as he discovers that lifeʾs bitter circumstances can actually give rise to meaningful consequences.

Representative Reviews:

Red Clover is a beautiful moving story that gently absorbs you into the lives of the characters.”—Charlotte Foreman,

“Florence Osmund has written a wonderfully detailed story about a man overcoming his upbringing and becoming his own man. For the reader with a rooting interest in Lee, the trip is certainly worthwhile. The finished product, both the man and the story, are exemplary.”—Ray Paul, Windy City Reviews

Author Bio:

After more than thirty years working in corporate America, I retired to write novels.  My first book, The Coach House, was released in April 2012.  Its sequel, Daughters, was released in February 2013.  A third novel, Red Clover, was released in February of 2014.

I grew up in an old Victorian home in Illinois, complete with a coach house, the same house I used as the setting for my first two books.  I currently reside in Chicago where I enjoy all the things this great city has to offer and (of course) reading and writing.
