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.
Wait for Me By: Marguerite Martin Gray is a Christian Historical Romance. I have read several books by this author, and have enjoyed each and every one of them. This is book 5 in the revolutionary series. I have not read the entire series, but I did read the first two - and would recommend it . You will meet the characters in the beginning and watch them grow. In this story, we are transported to Charles Town, South Carolina in the year 1780. Louis and Elizabeth Lestarjette are facing the fear of the unknown. Louis can possibly go to prison while Elizabeth is pregnant with their 3rd child. So much has happened since we last visited with the Lestarjettes. Elizabeth will realize how much her friendships with other women and how important her faith will be to get her through this.
I have enjoyed the books that I have read in this series. I love the characters and seeing their growth. I love the historical research that went into this book. This is not a time period I read a lot about - but I feel like I learned so much.
I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher and the Celebrate Lit blogging program - all thoughts are my own.
