Elaine Cooper has written the second of three romantic historical novels. The Promise of Deer Run is number two. Her blog tour will be Nov 7 – 11. My review follows:

Title: The Promise of Deer Run

Author: Elaine Marie Cooper

Publisher: iUniverse

Copyright: 2011

ISBN: 978-1-4620-3796-4 (3797-1, 3798-8)

Format: Paperback

Genre: Historical romance

 

“The nightmare was
back, plaguing Nathaniel Stearns sleep.”

War indeed is a nightmare and when the enemy is your former
countrymen, it’s worse. Thus we start our journey through family’s lives at the
end of the American Revolution. This is not your typical war or typical romance
novel. It is fiction based fact and well written. As Elaine Cooper writes, you
the reader are in the story. Imagine being put in stocks for being mildly
disobedient. This incident is not glossed over but shown with stark detail.
Hungry? Need to use the facilities?

 

We have just covered the first twenty or so pages. The
details have been deeply researched. ‘The Promise of Deer Run’ is the second of
three in the series. It is here we understand the family structure. Working
together as a family wasn’t a desire so much as a vital necessity. ‘The Promise
of Deer Run’ has as much history as it does romance.

 

It is a book I strongly recommend because too many modern
Americans have lost sight of what makes this country great. We see movies about
this country’s beginning but in ‘The Promise of Deer Run’, we get a close up
view of the families; their struggles and their accomplishments. Have you read
The Declaration of Independence lately? You’ll want to after your first read of
this book.
