Books

Leah is currently shopping two historical novels and one collection of poetry.

The first novel, Dead Run through the Devil’s Belt, is a look at 1689 Connecticut Colony during King William’s War between French and English settlers, from the viewpoint of a young couple, one French and one English, torn apart by warring sides, adultery, and unwed pregnancy, and thrown in with a cast of Quakers, Pequot Indians, and highwaymen.

The second novel, Falcon in the Dive, is a look at the French Revolution through the eyes of a disabled Parisian orphan intent on bringing down the aristocracy, until she befriends a nobleman who thinks the same as she, and together they rescue targeted French prisoners when the factions change and a new, worse common enemy arises.

The collection of poetry, The Sighs of Women Becoming: 47 dead women who lived, is a collection touching on the lives and personalities of 47 women who died strange, lonely deaths before their time, either by their own hands, or under mysterious, questionable, or harrowing circumstances.
