When he encounters Amalie, a slave with a difficult past, though, his direction changes entirely, and he learns that some paths lead to unexpected destinations.

Though Dark Days May Come…
George is just another farmboy, who prefers to sneak a break than involve himself in the intrigues of the Revolution.  Even after the British come to town in a blaze of cannonfire, he stays out of it… until Louise crosses his path, and draws him into her mysterious world.

When that world falls into shadow, the results will make history–and turn George’s life completely upside-down.

Brief Candle Press, 2014

Susannah Mills is an ordinary young woman of the Massachusetts-Bay Colony, more interested in skipping her school lessons than in the the growing rebellion against King George.
But when the rebellion hits home, everything changes.  Her quiet life is shattered, and she has to flee to Nova Scotia with her father.
They find what feels like a safe haven in Nova Scotia, and she is just settling back into some sense of normalcy–but is there any safe place when an empire is at war with itself?
Even stories we think we know have two sides.  Live the upheaval the Revolution meant to those who wanted only to live quietly as a loyal subject of the British Crown–and feel the price paid by America’s opponents for its independence.
