Thanks for joining me! At HistoricalNovelsRUs, we look at history and historical fiction, examining the past with an eye towards the present. I hope you’ll enjoy the historical tidbits, look for ways to help others, and have fun – as we reach Across the Great Divide!
My novel series, Across the Great Divide, has its first book due out mid-April 2019 for pre-order. Join Will Crump and his family as they try to figure out life in a deeply divided country, on the edge of the Civil War. How does an ordinary fifteen year old get drawn into a murderous, bloody conflict? How do his sisters, Albinia and Julia, have their lives turned upside down – one acting as an agent of the Underground Railroad, the other as a Union spy? And what are the forces that lead a father and son to face one another on the opposite sides of a battlefield? Luther, a slave who just wants peace, ends up leading his mother and sisters into danger, looking for freedom. Join me for “The Clouds of War”.
“I worked night and day for twelve years to prevent the war, but I could not. The North was mad and blind, would not let us govern ourselves, and so the war came.”
