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
