Elaine Marie Cooper is an award-winning author currently living in the Midwest. She grew up in Massachusetts, the setting for her three-part Deer Run Saga that takes place during the period of the American Revolution. This novel is the second in the series. Elaine is a registered nurse and has been a magazine freelance writer for many years.
It’s 1790 and the American Revolution has been over for seven years. Nathaniel Stearns, a veteran Continental soldier, still awaits the return of his father, who seemed to vanish as the battles ended. Growing embittered and isolated, Nathaniel is haunted by painful memories of war and scarred from betrayal in love. The young man has turned away from faith. The only hope he clings to is that perhaps his father still lives.
Then he discovers his hope is shared by a young woman, Sarah Thomsen, who understands loss and the longing for a father. Their hearts are drawn together quickly as this unexpected connection grows. But jealousy, slander, and misunderstandings ignite a fire of doubt and mistrust—destroying their relationship.
Can two souls longing for healing and trust love again? Can faith—and a family—be restored? Discover for yourself in The Promise of Deer Run.
The Promise of Deer Run is the second novel in author Elaine Marie Cooper’s Deer Run Saga. The story opened with The Road to Deer Run. There will be a third, concluding book soon.
