FROM THIS DAY FORWARD
A wonderful love story in the American Tapestries series with characters who are trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives after the War of 1812. Daley turns the ugliness of war into a new beginning for the ones who pick up the pieces. Her characters are willing to do what they need to in order to survive, but also are willing to give a friendly hand to those around them.
Rachel Gordon was forced to leave her beloved England when she married a man her family did not approve of. While crossing the ocean, her husband Tom fell overboard, so now she is alone and also pregnant. She is determined to make it on her own on the property Tom bought sight unseen. Nathan Stuart has lost faith in himself as a doctor, due to what he saw during the war. When he encounters Rachel after her buggy overturns, he will have to deliver her child or they will die. Rachel and Nathan get to know each other and try to heal each other’s pain, but are slow to heal themselves. (SUMMERSIDE, Sep., 320 pp., $12.99)
