The Adam Fletcher Adventure Series Box Set (Books 1-3) by Sara Whitford
The Smuggler’s Gambit
Port Beaufort, North Carolina – May 1765
Seventeen-year-old Adam Fletcher is no stranger to fist fights, but when he bloodies the nose of the obnoxious son of Port Beaufort’s customs agent, the local magistrate offers Adam two choices: jail or an apprenticeship.
Choosing the latter, he soon finds himself bound apprentice to a reclusive old man with a secret, colorful past. Although Adam is less than thrilled about his new situation, when he is asked to spy on his master as a suspected smuggler, he has to decide where his loyalties lie. Will he perform his civic duty to the Crown, or will he do whatever is necessary to protect the old man, possibly putting even his own family in danger?
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY says, ”Whitford delivers an enjoyable tale.” Readers love this family-friendly adventure!
Captured in the Caribbean
June 1766 – Havana, Cuba
Adam Fletcher begins a life-altering quest when he travels to help deliver cargo in the West Indies. Not long after the Carolina Gypsy arrives in the bustling port of Havana, Cuba, Adam ventures out on his own to track down a man who he has been told may have information about his father.
His plans are complicated, however, when he ends up being taken hostage by the very men he hired as interpreters.
When his shipmates receive a ransom letter, they launch a desperate search to find him, but meanwhile, Adam plots his own escape from the hands of his captors. Once he discovers who’s behind it all, he starts thinking that maybe he should have left well-enough alone instead of trying to dig up secrets that were buried in the past.
Murder in the Marsh
Port Beaufort, North Carolina – December 1766
After a tumultuous time in Havana where he uncovered more family secrets in a week than most people do in a lifetime, Adam Fletcher is grateful things are finally starting to get back to normal.
That is, until an inexplicable series of brutal crimes in the region hits a little too close to home. Suddenly, Adam finds himself in the middle of hunting down clues to try and identify the suspect, or suspects, in three different murders, one of which has a mystery victim.
Tales From a Revolution Box Set by Lars D. H. Hebdor
Ordinary People in Extraordinary Times
The question of how the American colonists made the long trip from being subjects of the British King to being citizens of the independent United States has nearly as many answers as there were people. Within these collected Tales From a Revolution, you’ll be transported to the time when the American Revolution tested how a young farm boy from Vermont, a Quaker blacksmith, and a Tuscarora clan member would all navigate the tumultuous times of the American Revolution.
The Biggest Heroes are Sometimes Unsung.
Caleb yearns to join his father, serving with Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys to defend Lake Champlain from the British. His duties on the family farm consume him, but then a fateful encounter with an unlikely neighbor changes everything. Pulled into new intrigues and new friendships, can Caleb keep his community safe, or will the entire Revolution meet its doom on the waters of the lake?
Caught Between the Impossible and the Forbidden.
As a blacksmith in the quiet town of Trenton, New-Jersey, Robert Harris was accustomed to working with the challenges of fire and steel. The outbreak of open warfare, though, will test his Quaker faith, and its command to avoid all violence. With enemy forces occupying the town, and a former business associate determined to destroy his family and friends, can Robert find a way to protect his pursuit of what’s right?
They Should Have Been Enemies, but They Became Friends.
Joseph Killeen was sent into the wilds of frontier New-York to eliminate the threat of savage enemies in the forests of New-York, but when he meets Ginawo and his peaceful Skarure village, he realizes that nothing is as simple as he was told. The Haudenosaunee Confederation is being torn asunder by the American Revolution, forced to choose sides in a fight that’s not their own. Can Joseph and Ginawo bridge the divide between their peoples, when warfare threatens to destroy both societies?
The Ella Wood Trilogy, by Michelle Isenhoff
“Poetic” and “nuanced,” this sweeping Southern saga tells the story of one young woman standing at the edge of war and struggling with questions of morality, purpose, and love.
As slavery pushes the nation toward war, Emily must battle her father in her own bid for freedom. She’s prepared to pay any price to escape the plantation and attend a northern university newly opened to women. Meanwhile Thaddeus Black, her handsome and unwanted suitor, simply won’t take no for an answer. While her mind is willing to strike out alone, her heart stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love.
Follow Emily from heartbreak to hope as this critically acclaimed series carries her through the tragic years of the American Civil War.
Titles in the trilogy: Ella Wood, Blood Moon, Ebb Tide.
Reader-nominated for a 2016 Cybil’s Award (Blood Moon).
