The lovely and spirited Mara Haviland, heiress to a large
English estate, finds her world overturned when she is betrayed by a
powerful man, and she must journey -- first across Cromwell's war-torn
1640s Britain, then to the dangers of the New World -- in her quest to
restore her rightful life and regain the man she loves. Mara will evade
soldiers, cross a dangerous ocean, confront angry colonists, and
navigate between the men who adore her, all for a chance at redemption.
MARA HAVILAND is a sprawling, page-turning saga of romance and revenge.
"Rich in historical detail . . . an engrossing story . . . This is one
historical romance novel that isn't based on pure fantasy and is much
the better for it." -- Alice Duncan, author of Angel's Flight
and High Spirits
