Montgomery House

By Katharine E. Hamilton

Elizabeth Montgomery wishes to honor her grandfather’s memory by moving back to her hometown of Quinton, Georgia, to take care of her grandmother and to remodel their family home. Unfortunately, rumors spread of mysterious happenings haunting the property, and the only contractor willing to take on the project is Jackson Dean, the long lost nephew of her grandmother’s chief enemy.

Jackson Dean moves to Georgia to reignite his family relations, but his work poses a threat to a peaceful transition. He accepts the job on Montgomery House to prove his skills as a contractor, but what he is not expecting are his feelings towards the granddaughter of Sissy Montgomery, and his personal quest to mend more than just the house.

Elizabeth and Jackson must learn to work together on more than just construction, and their hearts must face more than just family prejudice.

Can years of family rivalry truly be forgiven?

Come Eat at My Table

(What a Difference a Year Makes)

By Ruth O’Neil

Karin is a woman with a past. About the time she thinks no one will ever know, it comes back to haunt her. The deeper she tries to push it away the more prominently it returns. Forgiveness is a word that isn’t in her vocabulary as far as the people from her past are concerned. She thinks she’s fine until someone from her past shows up unexpectedly forcing her to think about what happened. With the help of her family and other people around her she realizes that she must learn to forgive, even if forgiveness wasn’t asked of her.

Reminiscing is one similarity. Come Eat at My Table is a lot about dealing with your past, even if the reminiscing isn’t so fun.

About the Author

As a reader, I’ve found that I learn far more about history through well-researched fictionalizations of events than through dry recitations of facts. We’re wired to respond to stories of fellow human beings, and as an author and in my television appearances, I seek to recount the stories of our national origins during the American Revolution, bringing to life the day-to-day concerns and struggles of the men, women and children who experienced that era not as history, but as their lives.

I relish those stories that let my readers see the hard decisions, the inhuman sacrifices, and the soaring triumphs of the human spirit that made history during the war. While much of the war was fought on the battlegrounds of places like Lexington, King’s Mountain, and Yorktown, it was won over the kitchen tables of ordinary people, both here in the colonies, and in the households of England.

Join me in this trip into the not-so-distant past, a time when great events unfolded around people not much different from you or I.
