Daughter of a bordello madame and an Italian captain of the seas,
Angelina Mercy longs for a new life, free from the condemnation associated with
her mother's home in Boston. A former navy man, Jonathan Thomson has accepted
God's call and become a minister of a small congregation. Adrift from his
Yankee heritage in the Missouri plains, Jonathan longs for a family of his own.
Pursuing Alice, the daughter of the town's wealthy patron, Jonathan believes he
can tame her wild ways and accomplish more as a preacher once so established.
When Angelina's guardian and Jonathan's seminary professor learns of Jonathan's
misguided intentions, he seeks out a solution to aid both individuals,
providing a new home for Angelina in St. Joseph, and Angelina and Jonathan are
brought together with a strong initial attraction. Can Jonathan ignore
Angelina's Gold Earrings, a constant reminder of the implications of her less
than pristine parentage? And will Alice succeed in keeping Jonathan from
Angelina? The resilient heroine of Diane E. Tatum's novel will inspire you in
this touching tale of love against the odds.
A Time to Choose(unpublished)
Captain Andrew Browning’s new assignment is to head up
security at the Lincoln White House. A Virginian and a longtime friend of
Robert E. Lee, he must decide whether to resign from the Union Army. His
long-time fiancée is a beautiful Southern belle whose father runs a plantation
with slaves who were Andrew’s childhood friends. His choices will also affect
his family: his blacksmith father, mother, and twin sisters.
Maggie Strickland’s mission is
to bring a petition from Massachusetts abolitionists to Lincoln demanding an
end to slavery. A Harvard graduate in political science and journalism, Maggie
writes about her passions and the war under a pseudonym. She plans to change
the South and give her heart to Andrew, a man who has made difficult choices and
is embittered by his former relationships. Impetuous and driven, Maggie’s
passion for her family, justice, and God determines her choices.
A Time to Choose is a
Christian historical romance set in Washington, DC, during the Civil War years.
