More from Marguerite
I have always been fascinated with the ordinary—the simple acts from day to day. When an historical event is added, I surround my fascination with questions. What did they wear or eat? Why did they marry? Did they have children? Where did they shop? What is incredible or surprising to me about the historical event or activity was at one time ordinary to the characters whether in fiction or nonfiction.
The ordinary that I like to encounter and write in historical fiction includes how the characters dressed. I even had the dress pictured here made for me just in case I want to present in costume!
The ordinary activities such as going to church or to the market or mercantile make the characters real. Their lives have depth in their interaction with society. My simple faith in God’s provisions and promises flow into the lives of my characters. What makes the story exciting is the historical element linked with the dramatic background of war.
Thank you for continuing the journey with Wait for Me, rooted in the ordinary from two centuries ago.
This story is so well written that I felt I was back in the 1780s witnessing a town fighting for freedom. The author has done an astounding job of depicting this time period with facts that paint a picture of a war that took so many. I loved reading how a town banded together to stand up to their enemy. The faith in the story flows so gracefully as we see characters trusting God to keep them safe.
It was intriguing to learn that some family members were in a secret mission. It was dangerous work and at anytime their life could be in peril. Each character brought something to the story that fit like a puzzle piece. I adored Elizabeth and her strength to keep those she loved safe. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have to hide in a basement praying that you would not be found.
I’m sad that this is the last in the series. I have come to love the history lessons and read about familiar people that graced history books. There are moments in the story that I held my breath as cannons shot off into the sky and bullets flashed by aiming for its mark. The author delivers a wonderful and emotional look at trusting God and standing in faith in the face of crisis.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
