The Road to Deer Run
What's the book about?The year was 1777. The war had already broken the heart of Mary Thomsen, a young colonial woman from Massachusetts. It had also broken the spirit of British soldier Daniel Lowe, a wounded prisoner of war in a strange land.
They were enemies, brought together by need. Would their differences overshadow the yearnings of their hearts? Or would the bitterness of war keep them apart?
Elaine says: This story was inspired by my great-great-great-great grandparents. My research into their lives and times brings authenticity to my book. Hope you enjoy it.
