My graphic designer, Jody Christian, is currently working her magic to create a cover, and as soon as we have a finished project, I'll share it with you!
Life continues to be busy, but one thing I've come to appreciate about winter is that everything slows down just a little bit to allow for more time for writing. To date, I've completed twenty-one chapters of the rough draft and am moving along at a quick pace!
I must admit I love how this story is unfolding, and I hope that you will too!
FROM FIELDS OF PROMISE
Belonging neither to the South where its sympathies lay, nor to the North which held it captive, Maryland’s Eastern Shore must forge a new path through the havoc left by the Civil War.
Mariah Wright, a Confederate widow, has to find a way to keep her husband’s farm from falling into poverty and ruin. Most of the slaves have headed north to freedom and there aren’t enough hands to work the fields. Left with the care of her aging mother-in-law and young sister-in-law, Mariah strives to carry the burdens the war has left her.
Isaac Roberts, a veteran of the Confederate Army, returned from Appomattox to discover that the life he left behind has moved on without him. Disillusioned from the loss of a cause to which he had given everything, and damaged from the savage realities of war, Isaac fears he has nothing left to live for.
With nowhere else to turn, Isaac accepts the challenge of helping a fallen comrade’s widow save all she has left of her husband’s legacy. As the fractured nation struggles to come together after four bitter years of fighting, Mariah and Isaac must find their place in a world which has changed forever.
