Book launch for Fields of the Fatherless is less than one week away! Next Tuesday, all systems will be “GO!” at Amazon!
I have been so blessed by the reviews that pre-readers are posting at Goodreads. Here are a few snippets:
Elaine Marie Cooper has done a great job in Fields of the Fatherless portraying the culture and events of the time. While the main characters and their stories are fictional, many of the events and places which served as the basis for the story did occur.
Elaine takes us directly into the emotions of fear and disbelief as Betsy’s world is turned upside down by war. Her emotions show her both honest and strong as she faces an uncertain future forever shaped by what she witnesses. Struggling to make sense of the horrors of war, she discovers a truth greater than death and hating.
— Angela Meyer, Author of Where Hope Starts
What I experienced in reading Fields of the Fatherless was an engrossing, heart-wrenching read with characters that grabbed my heart and a wonderful historical tale, suitable to be shared with the entire family, the sort of book grandmothers can confidently pass on to their granddaughters.
What makes this story special is that it is based upon true accounts of an actual battle and its aftermath in the small village of Menotomy, Massachusetts, at the start of the Revolutionary War. Ms. Cooper makes history come alive in a first person account told through the eyes of real-life Betsy Russell. Betsy was a teenager when this significant, but little told, battle in our country’s fight for independence took place, and she makes for an endearing character.

Elaine Cooper captures the essence of what it was like to live during the opening days of the Revolutionary War. Her research about this little known battle takes the reader to Betsy’s side as she sees horrors, love, and a personal journey of hatred and forgiveness in this amazing story. Fields of the Fatherless is a snapshot of history everyone should read.
— Peter Leavell, Author of Gideon’s Call
