More About the Author

Susanna Fraser wrote her first novel in fourth grade. It starred a family of talking horses who ruled a magical land. In high school she started, but never finished, a succession of tales of girls who were just like her, only with long, naturally curly and often unusually colored hair, who, perhaps because of the hair, had much greater success with boys than she ever did.

Along the way she read her hometown library's entire collection of Regency romance, fell in love with the works of Jane Austen, and discovered in Patrick O'Brian's and Bernard Cornwell's novels another side of the opening decades of the 19th century. When she started to write again as an adult, she knew exactly where she wanted to set her books. Her writing has come a long way from her youthful efforts, but she still gives her heroines great hair.

Susanna grew up in rural Alabama. After high school she left home for the University of Pennsylvania and has been a city girl ever since. She worked in England for a year after college, using her days off to explore history from ancient stone circles to Jane Austen's Bath.

Susanna lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and daughter. When not writing or reading, she goes to baseball games, sings alto in a local choir and watches cooking competition shows.

Format: Kindle Edition
Elijah was a proud man of color that fought side-by-side with soldiers to defeat the French. His troops were respectful and accepting of his rank and stature based on his ability to lead. When one of the men under his direction is killed during battle, Elijah is the one to step up and offer the man's widow the possibility of marriage. This arrangement is acceptable to everyone, as it will keep Rose safe from the men that look to take advantage of her situation. This marriage would also give Elijah his heart's desire fulfilled with the woman he has always desired from a distance.

Knowing the danger that was ahead of her Rose marries Elijah and with her son, they become an unconventional but loving family. With the course of both of their lives altered Rose and Elijah set forth to pursue her dream of owning an inn. This new life would allow her to explore her talent for cooking. This dream meant returning to her late husband's home where the past will collide with the present she has with Elijah. The accepting is slow and at times hurtful toward the couple but day by day, each person touched with the taste of the life Elijah and Rose have built warms every closed heart.

Susanna Fraser provides every reader with a compelling and intriguing story of how the lines of love are not easily defined.

I have all of Fraser's books. My favorite is the Sergeant's Lady. I thought this book was very good also, but it was too short. I liked the character development but I was disappointed that she didn't spend anytime talking about what happened when they go back to
England. it is doubtful in that time period that people would have been as accepting as Fraser suggests
