Editorial Reviews


Praise for Bluebird of Brockport Donna Winters tells a rollicking good story, full of action, romance, and mystery, that conveys a very pervasive feeling of authenticity for Erie Canal life in the 1830s. She is especially good at developing credible, likable characters and describing family dynamics. --William G. Andrews, Ph. D., Village of Brockport Historian Emeritus and author of four books on Brockport history

A well-written and enjoyable account set during the 1830s Erie Canal days, Bluebird of Brockport recalls life's struggles that helped form the American values system. Supported by faith and friends, families faced the threats of adversaries, discovered solutions to mysteries, as well as experienced the wonder of unfolding romance. --Tom Castaldi, author Wabash & Erie Canal Notebook series

With vivid characters, a tender romance, and historically accurate details about life on the Erie Canal, Bluebird of Brockport has it all! Lucina and Ezra are characters that will gain a permanent place in the hearts of readers. Their loves and losses, joys and sorrows, will keep pages turning long into the night!

Winters' writing is almost lyrical and will sweep readers away on page one, in much the same way Lucina is swept away by her love for the Erie. The historical details sprinkled throughout transported me back in time until I could almost hear the water lapping against the sides of the canal boat. An enchanting read! --Amanda Barratt --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Donna spent her childhood in Brockport (twenty miles west of Rochester, New York), growing up a quarter mile north of the Erie Canal. She recalls boat horns and lift bridge bells luring her to run up the Main Street hill and catch a ride on the bridge. After graduation from Brockport High School in 1967, Donna attended SUNY Potsdam where she earned her Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. Following a brief teaching career in Hancock, New York, Donna married and relocated to her husband's home state, Michigan, where she has been living since December 1971. Donna s writing career began in 1982 while working full time for an electronics firm. She resigned from her job in 1984 following a contract offer for her first book. Since then, Thomas Nelson Publishers, Zondervan Publishing House, Guideposts, and Bigwater Publishing have published her novels. Her husband, Fred, a former American History teacher, shares her enthusiasm for history. Together, they visit historical sites, restored villages, and museums, purchasing books and reference materials for use in Donna s research. In preparation for writing Bluebird of Brockport, they spent a month traveling along the Erie Canal, visiting canal towns and museums. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
