Elaine Donovan’s forebears have owned the Sacred Spring campground in Central Florida for generations, and Elaine has become an environmentalist because of her love of nature and of the property. Duty weighs heavily on the twenty-three-year-old Elaine, as she now finds herself responsible not only for the decrepit campground, but for her young brother and aging grandfather as well. When she meets developer Hank Schaefer, she senses he may have answers for her, but discovers that his scheming female partner, Reva North, has other plans for the property. Elaine is then compelled to find her own inspiration that will preserve and fulfill her hopes and dreams.

Jean Schaefer has suffered from overwhelming anxiety for the past four years due to the death of her parents and an entanglement with her child’s father, which ended in a shocking rejection.

From a top 1000 reviewer: “This book is solid and well written, well edited with memorable engaging characters. Keep them coming and I’ll keep buying them.”

“This series delivers more than great stories. The author, DiVoran Lites is a life-long lover of nature. In the Florida Springs Trilogy she will draw you into one of Florida’s most unheralded treasures, the beautiful natural springs.”
“DiVoran had me rooting for Nick and Jean, giggling with little Missy (as well as hurting for her that her daddy was such a jerk), and hating Richard. I am very much looking forward to Book Three in this trilogy”

I’d recommend you curl up in front of the fire with a hot cup of tea, cider, or hot cocoa and this book, because you’re not gonna want to put it down!!
I have only one negative to say…This is the last story in the trilogy! I always hate to say goodbye to the friends I’ve met and grown with. Another good one, DiVoran!! I can’t wait to see your next series!!
Just finished reading Clear Spring, now I’m wishing there were more books in the series. I hate saying goodbye to the people I ‘ve gotten to know from Sacred Spring, Living Spring and Clear Spring. I ‘ve enjoyed watching Elaine and her young brother Scotty from Scared Spring grow and mature and develop their lives. The cast of characters has grown from book to book and the romance and mystery has grown right along with them
