2019 Historical Novel of the Year
What happens when you do everything right, but life turns out all wrong? Erin Miles and Peter Kichline have made critical decisions impacting not only themselves but their families and community. They were careful. Deliberate. And still the outcome isn’t favorable. Revolution has come to Northampton County, igniting patriots with the publication of Thomas Paine’s Common Sense. Others are aflame with indignation—breaking away from Great Britain is sheer madness!
Easton in the Valley
Erin Miles has reached a personal and professional milestone—she’s “Doctor Miles” at last! Expecting teaching offers to fill her inbox, she’s soon trolling through The Chronicle of Higher Education for a position, any position. Somehow, though, what few jobs there are would take the recent widow away from her family and friends. As she considers what to do next, she’s thrust into the role of caregiver when her parents both face health emergencies. Her real passion lies with researching her Easton-based ancestry, especially her intriguing six times great-grandfather, Sheriff Peter Kichline. Just when she thinks no doors will open to teach, she’s faced with some unusual offers, a promising romance with an Easton historian, and decisions that will impact her young son and family.
