Historical Fiction that Grabs your Heart & Feeds your Soul
Author/Speaker Elaine Marie Cooper is a self-described history geek. Her bookshelves are filled with volumes about the American Revolution, an era she became fascinated with when growing up in Massachusetts.
Her passions are her family, her faith in Christ and writing—usually about the American Revolution, a frequent subject of her novels.
Her most recent publication is a definite change in her usual topic. Bethany’s Calendar is a non-fiction memoir of her daughter who died of a brain tumor in 2003. This is the book she never wanted to write, yet felt an inner prompting to pen her daughter’s journey through terminal cancer. It has already touched many lives and her prayer is that it will help each reader, whether a caregiver, patient or friend of a patient. Or just anyone who faces an unimaginable struggle in their life.
Fields of the Fatherless is historical fiction based on a true event. Set in Menotomy Village, Massachusetts at the opening of the American Revolution, readers will learn of a little known yet critical battle that took place on April 19, 1775. As seen through the eyes of 18-year-old Betsy Russell, the opening of the war is felt through the women and children trying to survive while the Minutemen fight for independence.
