Book Description

When You’re Hiding For Your Life, What Do You Live For?


Abbi has the gift of dreams. But her uncanny ability to see glimpses of the future has no apparent purpose or meaning until a dream leads her to a man on the brink of despair and destruction.

Cameron is a man without a name and without a country, framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Long ago forced into exile and believed dead, the passing of years have defaced him of all hope.

The country of Horstberg suffers beneath the weight of tyranny, and only Cameron holds the secret that could see her ruler undone and restore the people to peace and prosperity. While revolution brews and whispers of treason threaten all that is dear to Abbi, she remains unaware of her own ability to answer a nation’s prayers.

Trusting only her heart and the power of her dreams, Abbi gives all that she has to lead Cameron back into a civilized world, where love is real and freedom comes only in facing what hides behind the mask.

Please note that this book contains the entire Volume One of the Horstberg Saga, over 1,080 manuscript pages! Ebook has a fully linked table of contents. A Matter of Honor, Volume Two in the Horstberg Saga, is also available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect novel December 28, 2013
By E
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
5 stars for an amazing reading experience! Another "can't put it down" title!
I loved the characters, the storyline, the way this novel grabbed me and wouldn't let go- my mind was so involved in the story's happenings that I even dreamt about them!
I love the way the author used such decorum and respect with the intimate interaction between the main characters. Even though it's not a religious novel per se, nothing was inappropriate or offensive.
I enjoyed every word, and even learned a few new ones!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I Have Ever Read!! December 20, 2013
By Dianne
Format:Paperback
This is the best book I have ever read! I really enjoyed how much fun it was to decompress and just get lost in another place and time in this story. Abby is my Hero. Cameron in my Hero. I just Loved It!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one we've been waiting for! January 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A lot of readers have waited A LONG time for this and now we get to read about Abby and her dreams! It was deeply fulfilling. And oh so worth the wait.

I loved being able to picture Cameron on the side of a mountain unseen by all, but just a couple of people. How Abby would ride and he could watch from the trees unseen. The picture is so clear in my mind. That's what I love about this book--the clear images so you can let your imagination take you someplace else. And anyone who reads this book--all our own images are just as accurate. There is no right or wrong.

I loved that silly baron who demanded to know who killed Nickolas. It weren't any of his business! But the poor daughter! How embarrassing!

Elizabeth once again deals with life hurts, misunderstandings, feelings of inadequacies perfectly. This is an area where she shines. Elizabeth just knows and understands the heart so perfectly. It isn't always so tidy but the possibilities are there. Sometimes all it takes is the right person to be there and to listen.

This is not a book you'll read all in one sitting. It took me several days. But just sit back and enjoy the ride. Wherever you left off one day you'll fall back into right away. Adventure, excitement, romance, duels, and some violence but nothing too graphic--except for the killing of a really evil bad guy.

This book was incredible. I actually bought it for Christmas a few days early, and it was extremely hard to put it down and get ready for Christmas dinner. I love the story line, and can't wait for the next book. Will definitely be buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new series! January 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had realistic character development and a plot that kept me guessing. I enjoyed how real the characters seemed and left me anxious for the next book. It reminded some of her other books, but is definitely one of her best!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I completely enjoyed this book. The character development is fantastic. The author has a great sense of emotional storytelling that wraps you into the story as if you know,and can fully relate to the characters. This is the kind of story that touches the heart and the spirit. Well done. I look forward to the next chapter is the Horstberg Saga.
