Announcing my newest historical novel, Far Side of the Sea!
I LOVE THE WRITTEN WORD and have a passion for history and writing stories about wounded, complex heroes and the smart heroines who save them. Far Side of the Sea is no exception, and as Grace Mabry's brother from Not By Sight embarks on his own adventure, the story takes a few interesting twists and turns that I hope my readers will enjoy!
"In spring of 1918, Lieutenant Colin Mabry, a British soldier working with MI8 after suffering injuries at the front, receives an unexpected message by carrier pigeon: it is an urgent summons from Jewel Reyer, the woman he once loved and who saved his life—a woman he believed to be dead. Leaving Britain’s shores to return into war-torn France, he hopes his reunion with her will ease his guilt and this mission restore the courage he lost on the battlefield.
Colin is stunned when he arrives in Paris to discover the message came not from Jewel, but from a stranger who claims to be her half sister, Johanna. Johanna works at a dovecote for French Army Intelligence; having found Jewel's diary, she believes her sister is alive and in the custody of a German agent. With spies everywhere, Colin is at first skeptical of Johanna, but as they travel across France and Spain, a tentative trust begins to grow between them.
When their pursuit leads them straight into the midst of a treacherous plot, however, that trust is at stake, as danger and deception turn their search for answers into a battle for their lives."
RESEARCH is one of my favorite aspects of novel writing. I love to learn about different places around the world and the varied timelines of history; reading stories about people of the past and their cultures is fascinating, yet in many ways I've come to realize we're all much the same, despite the miles and centuries that separate us.
I don't often get the chance to go on a "field trip" to one of my story destinations, but I loved being able to visit Barcelona, Spain this past fall, and here are photos of some of the places I mention in my new release!
