You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

Laurel, a Post-Revolutionary War Inspirational Suspense

A 200-Mile Journey, a Trial, and a Shipwreck Test the Limits of Love and Faith 
From the first word to the last sentence, "Laurel" captured my attention. Chock full of factual history, the book moves from Appalachia to Charleston, South Carolina, and on to the Outer Banks of North Carolina with interesting twists and turns along the way. Characters become like family with whom you do not want to part, and the emotions expressed are spot-on for the circumstances. My hope is that there is a sequel to "Laurel" in the works as the book left me wanting to spend more time with this incredible family first introduced in the author's award-winning book "The Chamomile." In my opinion, "Laurel" is also a winner and award-worthy.
