It’s July, friends!
Oh, you knew that.
Well, I betcha didn’t know this: My new “Site of the Month” is up!
Please help me honor Julie Williams and her debut novel, “Where Freedom Lies.”
Julie is a fellow member of Inspire Christian Writers and a gal I’ve had the privilege to get to know over the past several months. Her highly skilled red pen has proved valuable on my own writing journey, and she has taught me that it takes the eyes and ears of many others to fine-tune a manuscript. As she continues on the road to publication, I hope you will take a minute to visit her site. I assure you, it will be time well spent.
“Where Freedom Lies” is a Christian novel of historical fiction that has been meticulously researched and delightfully written. Julie’s characters live and breathe on the page, pulling the reader into a time long past–a time that should be both remembered and celebrated. While the Revolutionary War is simply a history lesson for most of us, Julie’s heroine, Hannah, is living it. Through her eyes we watch as truth and fiction collide, birthing a story full of charm and wit while posing some heart-searching questions.
As we honor the birth of our great nation, take this opportunity to glimpse into Hannah’s world. Put yourself in her shoes, not far from Lexington Common where her father and twin brother head into battle. Watch as Drew, a British soldier, marches toward Lexington–toward Hannah–changing both the war and Hannah’s life in ways she could have never imagined.
I’m telling you, friends, it’s a great read.
Check out Julie’s website for the first two chapters of “Where Freedom Lies,” and enjoy America’s 234th birthday! May America continue to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
