Tournament of Champions - Clash #4 Reveal

You're here to find out which talented authors wrote yesterday's amazing excerpts, aren't you? Well, I aim to please. Let's get right to it.

Excerpt A: The Road to Deer Run
by Elaine Marie Cooper



During the American Revolution, British soldier Daniel Lowe has been captured after being wounded at the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. He escapes from his captors and hides in the woods to die, only to be rescued by Mary Thomsen, an American farmwoman. As Daniel’s festering wound heals, his gratitude to the woman who saved him transforms into love. But as an enemy soldier, his presence is endangering Mary, as well as her widowed mother and little sister. As he desperately tries to hide his identity, he is faced with numerous obstacles: exposure by the local Patriots, an attack by a British deserter, and a threat from his worst nemesis, an American soldier who also loves Mary and figures out who Daniel really is.
The Road to Deer Run is a novel about healing, forgiveness and redemption, set in the rugged landscape of Western Massachusetts.
“With subplots as appealing as the main story, the book is well researched, well written, and well worth the purchase price. Ready for the sequel.”
    Kirkus Discoveries Reviews
