Description

The wild American wilderness is no place for an elegant English governess On the run from a brute of an aristocratic employer, Eleanor Morgan escapes from England to America, the land of the free, for the opportunity to serve an upstanding Charles Town family. But freedom is hard to come by as an indentured servant, and downright impossible when she's forced to agree to an even harsher contract—marriage to a man she's never met. Backwoodsman Samuel Heath doesn't care what others think of him—but his young daughter's upbringing matters very much. The life of a trapper in the Carolina backcountry is no life for a small girl, but neither is abandoning his child to another family. He decides it's time to marry again, but that proves to be an impossible task. Who wants to wed a murderer? Both Samuel and Eleanor are survivors, facing down the threat of war, betrayal, and divided loyalties that could cost them everything, but this time they must face their biggest challenge ever . . .Love.

      • bioText:

        Michelle Griep's been writing since she first discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. She seeks to glorify God in all that she writes—except for that graffiti phase she went through as a teenager. She resides in the frozen tundra of Minnesota, where she teaches history and writing classes for a local high school co-op. An Anglophile at heart, she runs away to England every chance she gets, under the guise of research. Really, though, she's eating excessive amounts of scones while rambling around a castle. Michelle is a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) and MCWG (Minnesota Christian Writers Guild).

        Starred review from September 1, 2016

        After a debauched duke attempts to seduce her, Eleanor Morgan flees on a ship bound for the American colonies. Arriving in South Carolina, she is now an indentured servant to trapper Samuel Heath. A former governess, Eleanor is ill prepared for the rough life in America. For the widowed Samuel, the thought of marrying again is unfathomable, but he realizes he needs help caring for his young charge. Two wounded hearts find solace in each other as they seek God's forgiveness and grace. VERDICT Griep's (Brentwood's Ward) beautifully drawn protagonists and authentic depictions of the harshness of 18th-century American frontier life is not to be missed. A sure bet for fans of historical romance.
