TO KEEP FAITH
Barrington Saga #1 War of 1812 Historical
If we trust God, He can weave something
beautiful from the tangles of our lives and choices.
God is good.
A sweeping story of war, betrayal, death, forgiveness...
Amazon Review: TO
KEEP FAITH is a tightly written novel of a family torn apart by war, betrayal and death. It is also a novel of how bonds of
family and faith can heal the deepest rift. A real page turner.
you know the War of 1812 has been called America’s second war for independence? Until we defeated the British a second
time, they still considered us their cousins who’d just lost their way. They stopped our ships at high sea and forcefully
dragged off our sailors to fight their wars with no consideration that the sailors on American ships were citizens of another,
a sovereign country.
our people to involuntarily fight their wars, and refusing to recognize the United States as a separate nation was a primary
reason, among others, why we went to war.
British were already fighting Napoleon and certainly didn’t need their former upstart colony declaring war on another
front, using manpower and supplies badly needed to fight the Corsican who schemed to take over the world.
American and British viewpoints serve to deepen the plot of TO KEEP FAITH, the first of my Barrington Saga. Nathaniel Fairen,
the Fourth Earl of Thorwall, left England to visit Boston relatives to heal after the death of his wife. He didn’t
realize he’d be caught up in talk of war, or that he’d find something more than healing.
His daughter Faith doesn’t understand why her father left, and she doesn’t understand why God has taken
so much away from her. Still, she holds onto the promise made by her fiancé Carter, the Marquess
of Aven, who is fighting Napoleon.
But when war keeps her father from returning, when his sentiments becomes decidedly American, and when they get word
that Carter is badly injured, and worse, Faith must find a way to go on. Will her faith be enough to sustain her?
