Hi everyone, Angela Couch here. I'm over on Colonial Quills and Facebook today celebrating the release of my WWII short story, When I'm Gone! But I would want to share something else even more exciting with you.
I recently received the cover from White Rose Publishing of Pelican Book Group. While I've published short stories, and even have a novella releasing next month, The Scarlet Coat will be my debut novel.
The first book in my Hearts at War series, The Scarlet Coat plunges us into the American Revolutionary War. Here is the back cover blurb:
A Woman Compelled by Christian Charity
Surrounded by the musket fire of the American Revolution, Rachel Garnet prays for her family to be safe. When the British invade the Mohawk Valley, and her father and brother don't return from the battle, she goes in pursuit of them. She finds her brother alive but her father has been killed at the hand of the enemy. Amidst the death, how can she ignore a cry for help...? Rachel reluctantly takes in a badly wounded British officer. But how long can her sense of Christian duty repress her hatred for his scarlet coat?
A Man Lost to the Devastation of War
Passages of Scripture and fleeting images of society are all Andrew Wyndham recalls after he awakens to the log walls of his gentle prison. Even his name eludes him. Rachel Garnet insists he is a captain in the British army. He mourns the loss of his memory, but how can he hope to remember war when his “enemy” is capturing his heart?
A Scarlet Uniform Holds the Power to Unite or Divide
Andrew’s injuries are severe, his memory slow to return, and the secret of his existence too perilous to ignore. As Rachel nurses him back to health, his hidden scarlet coat threatens to expose the deeds of her merciful heart, and Andrew is forced to face a harrowing decision—Stay hidden and risk losing the woman he loves or turn himself in and risk losing his life.
And, here is the cover:
So excited to share the rest of the book with you as well, but I'm afraid you're going to have to wait a bit longer. :)
