New Release for Rita Gerlach!
Releasing today from my good friend acclaimed novelist Rita Gerlach, is Before the Scarlet Dawn, Book 1 in The Daughters of the Potomac Series, a timeless tale of love and betrayal, loss and redemption set against the backdrop of the American Revolution.
“…a big, beautiful, well-told story of love, faith, and the struggles of war that changed lives...and hearts.
~ Author Loree Lough ~
Eliza Morgan faces the hardships of colonial life when she leaves behind all she has in order to follow her heart and the man she loves into the Maryland wilderness. On a windswept night in April of 1775, Eliza sat at her father’s bedside hoping he would recover. Forced to leave the home she grew up in, Eliza grows desperate. She could marry her former suitor, but cannot bear the thought of a loveless marriage.
Instead she falls in love with Hayward Morgan, the condescending son of a landed gentleman. When Eliza learns of his plans to leave England and build a life in the Maryland frontier, she decides to present a proposal of her own.
