(author of the Surrender to Destiny Series and other inspirational fiction.)
In the wilds of Maryland, Sarah endures the hardships of being indentured and the debasement of being a woman. In despair, she offers up faithful prayers that are answered. But Sarah's new life in the Colonies finds her surrounded by a family's whirlwind of secrets, while she hopes the young doctor she loves with will bring her freedom.
From the shores of Cornwall, England to the Virginian frontier and then into the deep backwoods, we follow Sarah’s heartbreaking journey of being swindled into losing her freedom, sold as an indentured servant at auction, falling in love, sold again, kidnapped by Indians. . .well, I could go on but I’d ruin the story for you. Every time I thought Sarah would finally get a break, something tragic happened. Yet, instead of being a sad tale, the author skillfully weaves through the exquisitely written pages, the message of hope and freedom and redemption. It’s a message the world desperately needs to hear today, that despite tragedy and hard times, new life and hope are right around the corner.
