December is a lovely time to celebrate the release of Legacy of Deer Run. And although the characters in the story do not attend a church where Christmas is celebrated, I managed to work in a tender Christmas story in the chapter entitled “Gift.” Here is an excerpt with quotes from the character of Susannah Dobbins:
“’My mother’s family always celebrated Christmas as the birth of Jesus. I know that most of the churches feel it is unscriptural, but Mother always said it was her favorite holiday growing up. Although we did not celebrate it in our home, each Christmas Eve she would leave a tiny gift for Stephen and me on our pillows so we would find it in the morning. She said that it was just a reminder of Christ’s birth—and a reminder of how much she loved us.’ Susannah’s lips trembled and she blinked rapidly. Dan held her closely…”
Because he loves her, the character of Dan discovers a way to bring Christmas home to Susannah in a simple and unexpected manner. But it would spoil the surprise if I revealed it here!
Today celebrates the re-release of Legacy of Deer Run with all new edits, book cover, and even book club questions. I hope this third and final book in the Deer Run Saga blesses you this Christmas and all year. Merry Christmas!
About the Book…
The year is 1800.
A young man makes weapons for the defense of America, still a fledgling nation. He also protects his heart from the allure of a young woman whose station in life keeps her out of his reach.
The lady fights her own battle against loneliness and grief. Despite her finery and airs, she is drawn to the young armory worker who is distant yet disarming.
Love is not the only entanglement. The nation’s enemies are afoot. They creep within the very walls where America’s defenses are forged. Who are they? When will they strike? Who will survive their terrorism?
Intrigue of the heart and intrigue of the times are only part of this compelling story—Book 3 of the Deer Run Saga. This series finale is a gripping mix of romance and deception, faith and forgiveness, transgression and trial.
