Dawn's Prelude (Song of Alaska Book #1), by Tracie Peterson. (Still free?)

"Well known for her adventurous romance tales ... Peterson knows how to create independent female heroines who gather strength through difficult circumstances. Her legion fans will want this series launch." -- Library Journal

Newly widowed Lydia Sellers discovers that through an unforeseen fluke, she is the sole recipient of her husband's fortune. But instead of granting her security, it only causes strife as her adult stepchildren battle to regain the inheritance for themselves. Lydia, longing to put the memories of her painful marriage behind her, determines to travel to Alaska to join her aunt.

Lydia's arrival in Sitka, however, brings two things she didn't expect. One is the acquaintance of Kjell Bjorklund, the handsome owner of the sawmill. Second is the discovery that she is pregnant with her dead husband's child. What will this mean for her budding relationship with Kjell? And what lengths will her stepchildren go to reclaim their father's fortune? Lydia soon finds her life--and that of her child's--on the line.

With Every Letter (Wings of the Nightingale Book #1): A Novel, by Sarah Sundin. (Still free?)

"By telling this redemptive wartime tale of love primarily from the perspective of a young flight nurse, talented historical-fiction and romance author Sundin (Blue Skies Tomorrow, 2011) offers a unique perspective on the lives of military women during this time period." -- Elizabeth Ponder

They know everything about each other--except their real names.
Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she's never met--even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence--he's been trying to escape his infamous name for years.

As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other's true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?

Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing--and true love.

425 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 479 reviews.

The Candle Star (Divided Decade Collection), by Michelle Isenhoff. (Still free?)

"Kudos to the author for all the detailed research that went into this book and for teaching me something new. Her writing style is vivid, her plot strong, and her characters are rich and memorable." -- Patricia Tilton, Children's Books Heal

Runaways hidden in the barn, slave catchers housed in the hotel, and Emily squeezed between two very different loyalties.

After a tantrum, Emily Preston is shipped from her plantation home to her inn-keeping uncle in Detroit. There she meets Malachi, son of freed slaves, who challenges many ideas she grew up believing. But when Emily stumbles upon two runaways hidden in her uncle's barn, she finds that old ways die hard. And Mr. Burrows, the charming Southern slave catcher, is only yards away, lodged in the hotel.

A powerful story abounding in rich imagery, pathos, and beautifully turned phrases, The Candle Star also contains an abundance of accurate pre-American Civil War-era context, including:

*slavery
*the Underground Railroad
*Detroit history
*the economy of both North and South
*the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850
*each side's contributions to the start of war
*and American geography

The Candle Star is an ideal accompaniment to an American History social studies course or simply a stirring tale for young readers interested in stories of bygone days.

The Divided Decade Collection includes three stand alone stories that view the American Civil War through three different lenses. All are set within Michigan. The Candle Star features the Underground Railroad. Blood of Pioneers illustrates the trials faced on the rural homefront after the menfolk leave for war. And Beneath the Slashings is set within a Northern lumber camp filled with returning soldiers. The books can be read out of order or read alone, depending on the theme that most interests the reader (or most closely relates to a classroom curriculum). All three have been highly acclaimed by teachers and home schoolers. Each has lesson plans and additional resources available.

176 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 111 reviews.
