Novels of Historical Fiction:

A Ring of Promises (purchase link:

Century-old letters found in an attic reveal the 1912 story of Will, a lowly footman to an Earl in England, and Janet, a nanny to a Lord and Lady in the Highlands of Scotland. They knew their hearts but were separated by distance and duty: Will in England, Janet in the Highlands of Scotland. Desperate to find a way to be together, Will gives up everything he knows and sets sail to find a new home with only $25 in his pocket and a dream. The expected short separation was not to be.

This gripping and heartfelt story traces their journeys, in back-and-forth chapters between Canada and the Highlands of Scotland, as they struggle with the help of Janet’s sister Mary Ann, to overcome the obstacles threatening their dreams.

Inspired by a true story, this Historical Fiction Saga was described as “unputdownable” by Digital Arts and Entertainment Reporter, Margaret Chrystall of Highland News and Media, Scotland.

Promise of the Bluebell Woods (purchase link: )

It's 1942. With men away fighting Hitler, Pearl, like many young English women of her time, is afforded an unusual opportunity to help the war effort – whetting her appetite for a life that is more than tending house and children. Rod is a Canadian soldier awaiting deployment to the front lines with his hospital unit. The war brought them together. Its end threatens to tear them apart. Will they choose their homelands or each other?

A great read from a tender and vividly presented historical time. More than a love story this WWII historical fiction saga and romance was inspired by a war bride’s true story and follows the path of the Number 10 Canadian General Hospital as it is deployed to the front lines.

Praise for Promise of the Bluebell Woods: “This amazing true story draws the reader into its heart immediately by its dialogue and the inner thoughts of each character. The story thus unfolds in time that feels immediate, and the reader-as-observer becomes herself/himself an invisible character in the story, which is gripping and immediate." …Brenda Peddigrew, author
